The Three Little Minions is the story from the Minions movie that Scarlet tells the minions. Em didn’t really listen to the story as much as she liked the finger puppets on top of the book. But of course, she likes minions but doesn’t want to watch any of the movies either. She does randomly start singing “ba, ba, ba, ba-ba-na-na”.
Em picked out Monkeys Swing all by herself while I was looking through another book. Monkeys are her favorite animal right now, and I love that this book had real photos of monkeys along with some simple text. If she is still interested when she is a bit older, I want to learn the names of the different species of monkeys with her because my knowledge is woefully lacking.
I really like that they have a few of the classic Curious George stories in board book form. Curious George Goes Fishing is the book she read two trips previous. She loved the fish eating cake off the hook when George tried to fish. She wanted to look at the pictures on her own this time more than she wanted the story read to her.
Opposites uses illustrations from other Curious George books to show the difference between words. This one was Emmy’s favorite this week.
1 to 10 also uses illustrations, this time for counting forwards and backwards. She didn’t want to read this one much for some reason, I suspect because she refuses to count anything with me and gives me this rotten look every time.
I actually picked out Daisy-Head Mayzie to read this week because I remember watching a video of it when I was little and I haven’t read the book in years. I’m still trying to instill a love for Dr. Seuss in this child, she doesn’t want to sit still long enough for any of them yet.
