Tuesday Review: Young Child Books

I was not paid to endorse these products, these words are my own. Affiliate links used.
One thing I never tire of is seeing my son look through ("read") his books. Since I am home during the day, and my husband is up at an unnatural time in the morning, I am the one to put our son down for naps and bedtime. This means that I read through the books - a lot. I am constantly adding new ones to our collection. Here are a few of my (and my two-year-old's) favorites.

Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night? by  Brianna Caplan Sayres 

Quote: "Where do dump trucks sleep at night / After dumping dirt and rocks? Do they gather toys and dump them in a giant truck toy box?"

*Adorable artwork
*Fun to read, flows nicely
*Little guy loves trucks and definitely loves this book

Goodnight, Little Monster by Helen Ketteman

Quote: "It's dark little monster, bed time is soon. Come out to the porch to howl at the moon!"

*Cute artwork, depicting monsters as regular people
*Rhymes and flows nicely
*Lots of detail and little objects for kids to point out

The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin by Joe Troiano

Quote: "One day in the pumpkin patch, the strangest little pumpkin hatched. Spookley wasn't like his friends, where they had curves, he had ends."

*Cute artwork, very detailed
*Rhymes and flows very well
*Has a message against judging others based on looks

Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

Quote: "He slowly folds his boom back in, and then with one last sleepy grin, he tucks himself in nice and tight, then cuddles in and says goodnight."

*Super cute, almost like professional crayon drawings
*Rhymes and flows nicely
*Perfect to end the nightly readings with

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

Quote: "Bump, bump, bump. Did you ever ride a wump? We have a wump with just one hump. But, we know a man called Mr. Gump. Mr. Gump has a seven-hump wump. So, if you like to go bump-bump, jump on the hump of the wump of Gump!"

*Classic Dr. Seuss
*Fun to rhyme and read through it
*Long enough that it avoids feeling too repetitive
*Kids young and old love it (and adults!)
