The Letter B Booklist

dsc_1515

Bear Snores On (The Bear Books) by Karma Wilson- The bear books are some of my favorite books. There are so many good ones and the characters and illustrations are so so good!

Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey- A classic and such a good book. My daughter has loved reading this book from the beginning of her little life, and I love sharing it with her.

Blizzard by John Rocco- This is a new favorite in our home. I love the story because we experienced a similar blizzard last January, it bring back good memories.

Blackout by John Rocco-This is a fun book too! It is a great reminder that slowing down and turning things off can be such a great thing for your family.

Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle- Also a classic. I actually haven’t read this book to my daughter yet, and she is two! But it was so fun to introduce this book to her and she loved it.

Book by David Miles- I really enjoy the message behind this book about the power of books in our lives.

Birds by Kevin Henkes- I love Kevin Henkes and this book about birds is beautiful and fun to read.

Bread and Jam for Frances by Russell Hoban- This book was a little long for my two year old, but in a year or two I think she will really enjoy it. I like the message about trying new things.

Hooray for Bread by Allan Ahlberg- We read this book with our activity this week. It is a cute book about a day in the life of bread.

It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny by Marilyn Sandler- I never read this book growing up, but my husband loved it as a child, so when we were picking out some of the first children’s books to add to our library when I was pregnant, he wanted to include this one. I am glad he did because it is such a fun book that I have loved reading with my daughter over the years.

The printables for this week are much like last weeks. I have a do a dot letter B worksheet here and a letter B flash card here.

The Letter B Activity

For the letter B activity I wanted to be courageous and make banana bread, because bananas start with B and bread starts with B. It seemed like it might be a little too much for a two year old, but it actually went okay. She was a little impatient with me because she was pretty excited about getting to measure out all the ingredients, but we had fun. With this activity we read Hooray for Bread– a cute story about a day in the life of a loaf of bread. We made a Cinnamon Chocolate Swirl Banana Bread since I have been doing a little more gluten and dairy free living lately. It was delicious, although maybe I wouldn’t not add quite as much cinnamon. Some of my other favorite bread recipes if you are looking for something more normal is this banana bread recipe from Life With My Littles (we always add chocolate chips to this recipe) and this Soft Honey Oat Bread from Bakingdom.

It was another fun week of learning! Next week we will be working on the letter C!

Are there any other books you would add to my Letter B booklist? Any great books about boats? What other activities might you do with your toddler? I’d love to know!
