Books from Laura Numeroff

If you are looking for some fun books for kids about age 4 to 8, give Laura Joffe Numeroff a try. She is probably most known for her If You Give a Mouse A Cookie book and subsequent series. However, she has a number of other delightful and fun books worth taking a look at. Some titles that would make fun gifts include:
What Mommies Do Best/What Daddies Do Best
What Grandmas Do Best/What Grandpas Do Best
What Aunts Do Best/What Uncles Do Best

These are actually two books in one that you read in a flip-over style. Each includes a look at fun things you might find these relatives doing and how it can be appreciated and celebrated by the child in their life.

One of my favorite Numeroff's is that of Beatrice Doesn't Want To. Beatrice has a way of not wanting to do anything especially when she has to go to the library with her brother Henry. Funny, funny.

Some other titles to consider are:
Sometimes I Wonder If Poodles Like Noodles
Monster Munchies
The Chicken Sisters
Why A Disguise?
Two For Stew
Dogs Don't Wear Sneakers
Chimps Don't Wear Glasses
Laura Numeroff's 10-Step Guide to Living with Your Monster
Sherman Crunchley

The If You.....series:
If You Give A Mouse A Cookie
If You Give A Moose A Muffin
If You Give A Pig A Pancake
If You Take A Mouse To The Movies
If You Take A Mouse To School
If You Give A Pig A Party
The Best Mouse Cookie

If you find your young one really enjoys these books, try going to Numeroff's website for Fun Activities to do.

Wonderful selections!! I love this author.
My preschoolers loved the "If you give... series." We read these books at least once or twice a week.
