Kids are tactile and enjoy few activities more than poking things with a stick. Many preschools encourage kids to make letters out of Play Doh or draw them into sand or clay. The next time you are out in the park, or at the beach, or in the snow, use your surroundings to play with letters. Take turns writing letters in the snow, dirt, or sand. Book Pick: Before you hit the sandbox or the seashore, read Beach with your little one to get swept away in sandy scenes and simple language.

I must have read this times and even after Christmas had come and gone it was still requested all the time. The story is a rebus read along, so it is repetitive, and it builds upon itself. The repetitiveness allows them to anticipate what is next and feel included. Very cute even after reading it hundreds of times. The premise is simple; each page has a well known Halloween character including a witch, skeleton, Frankenstein all hiding behind their hands playing peek-a-boo with the readers. At the end of the book, there are more flaps to lift to reveal trick or treaters and the same Halloween characters hiding in their haunted house.

Both my kids have been grabbing for this book off our shelf when I ask which book they want to read. If it can be a favorite for an almost 5-year-old boy and a month-old girl I say it will probably be a hit at your house too. The story is adorable and empowering too. She devises a plan, and then another to get rid of these monsters, but it is an accidental kiss that finally gets them to go!
Kids will love this funny book about a brave girl not afraid but totally fed up with monsters. They will eat wheels and tractors; they will not eat broccoli. It was a fun way of opening up a talk about what foods we like and why trying new things is a good thing.
