Week Three Letter C Book List

Whew!  This has been an exhausting week.  Since we went on a little weekend trip, I decided to make 'C' week into a two week unit.  I just haven't had time to devote enough time to activities with packing and last minute arrangements.  

Here is our letter C book list for the week (well, two weeks!):

  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle -  Classic children's book.  A caterpillar emerges from it's egg, finds himself starving, and eats bites of everything he can find.  When he gets nice and full, he makes himself a cocoon, two weeks later he emerges a beautiful butterfly.
  • A Black Cat an ABC Book by Bernette Ford - Doesn't follow a story, but every page has a letter and a picture depicting what those letters stand for.  I love any books that reinforce ABCs and vocabulary.
  • The Carrot Seed by Ruth Krauss - A little boy plants a carrot seed, and despite everyone telling him the seed will not grow, he continues to take care of the plant.  Eventually, his work pays off, and it sprouts!
  • Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin - Farmer Brown's cows like to type, and that is a problem for Farmer Brown because the cows type letters to him, requesting electric blankets to keep warm in a cold barn, and refusing to provide milk when their request is denied.  Funny story, older toddlers will definitely enjoy.
  • What's That Sound In the City by Sheryl McFarlane - Sounds of the city.  Fun book for parents to make noises as well as toddlers!
  • Chicka Chicka ABC by Bill Martin Jr. - Meet the alphabet at the top of the coconut tree, but watch out, there might not be enough room!
  • Counting Farm by Kathy Henderson - My favorite 'new' book (new for us) this week!  Count the animals on the farm.  Really cute pictures, easy rhyming sentences, overall a great toddler counting book.
  • Who Took the Cookie from the Cookie Jar? by Bonnie Lass - Fun adaptation of the classic song.  Help Skunk find which of his animal friends stole the cookies from the cookie jar.
  • Cat's Colors by Jane Cabrera - Explore colors with Cat.  Colorful pictures, great for teaching colors to toddlers.

E loved The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Chicka Chicka ABC, and Counting Farm the best.  I was happy to have a variety to read with the letter C, and I am sure there are many more options!
