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.

Hide and Seek Harry at the Beach (Hide and Seek Harry) 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.

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.
