5 A Day Books: Week 1

5 a day books

I recently came across the 5-A-Day Books Challenge from the Imagination Tree. I love this idea for so many reasons. Not only does it promote early literacy, but the link list at the bottom of the host blog allows me to get book ideas from other moms/teachers. Win/win!

We read a lot of the same books every day (Goodnight Moon, Flip Flap Fly, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Bear Snores On, among others), so I'm going to try and use the 5-A-Day Challenge for new books not generally in our rotation. This week we're reading...

Very sweet book about opposites and unconditional love

Bright, simple pictures with English words and their Spanish counterparts

Each monster has patches of different textures to touch and feel

The bird in the center is a finger puppet!

Fun take on peek-a-boo with simple text and bright illustrations

I'd love your suggestions on any books we should be reading. We'll be taking weekly trips to the library to support this endeavor and would greatly appreciate some inspiration!

  1. Thanks so much for joining the challenge- great to have another participant! I love your choice of books. It's really important for us to have a range of ages represented, so thanks for giving us good ideas for the babies!


Thanks for reading!
