Hide and Seek Harry on the Farm by Kenny Harrison

Like the “Five Little Monkey” stories I find these “Hide and Seek Harry” stories extremely boring and repetitive (but that’s just me), the children absolutely love them.

“Hide and Seek Harry” is a crowd favorite and children 5 and under love playing the guessing game.

Mr Super Poopy Pants by Rebecca Elliott

This was hilarious. 

A new baby brother seems like a hit or miss for some children. But our protagonist grows attached to his baby brother and his amazing ability to “win” with the power of a stinky diaper.

The children really liked this book, especially the ones with baby siblings.

Should I Share My Ice Cream? (Elephant & Piggie #15) by Mo Willems

Oh, poor Elephant drives himself crazy wondering if Piggie will want ice cream or he should just share his ice cream, that as time passes, his ice cream melts.

This story was quite whimsical as many of the children in the reading group were adamant that ice cream should not be shared as then they would have less. It was quite amusing to watch their little heads work to try and solve this “problem”.

28 Days: Moments in Black History that Changed the World by Charles R. Smith Jr., Shane W. Evans (Illustrations)

This book aimed at children covers prominent African-American figures throughout history.

The book gives references to their youth and the events that propelled them to pages of history.

Some of the figures referenced are individuals that we all learn early on in school, but for a young child that is barely learning histories, this is a great book.

Rex Wrecks It! by Ben Clanton

This cute little dinosaur is having a bit of hard time. He’s always knocking things over and the other little children don’t want him around anymore.

But never fear, for children will be children and they soon find a way to set their differences aside and find creative ways to play.

The Very Inappropriate Word by Jim Tobin, Dave Coverly (Illustrations)

This was a really creative story with good art.

What I loved most was how the small children in the reading group would share their stories of how parents would teach them about what was a “bad” word.

Because it encouraged a conversation and a sharing of stories, I say this was a great book.
