National Reading Week Celebration Sandra Boynton Style {closed}

Congrats Katie S, Comment #67



I have professed my love of books many times throughout my years of blogging.  I have told you that I am a reading teacher but I have not yet shared with you Dexter's profound love of books.  Dexter simply is obsessed with books, reading and words.  For Dexter's 6 month birthday he received the book "Hippos Go Berserk" by Sandra Boynton.  It has been his absolute favorite for the last 2.5 years.  I have since purchased many more Sandra Boynton titles.  Our newest (and Dexter's new favorite) is "Pajama Time".  




In every book that I read to him there are at least two sentences that Dex wants me to read over and over again.  In "Pajama Time" he likes it when I put my arm around him and say "Pajammy to the left and Pajammy to the right" while I sway to the left and right.  It gets him every time!  






One of the books that was sent to me for review was Barnyard Dance.  I think that this book is super cute as it talks about different animals dancing throughout the barnyard.  I really like that it uses the word promenade as it is great for building vocabularies.




If you are looking for the most hilarious book then look no further than "Fifteen Animals".  "Fifteen Animals" is about a boy's pets all named Bob except for one, his turtle.  I love reading this book to Dexter because it reminds me how smart he is!  I will start to read and then I will suddenly stop and Dexter will fill in the words.  This makes me beam.  


How would you like to win your own copy of Perfect Piggies?  Just tell me which book is your childs favorite and if you own any Sandra Boynton books already.

We own quite a few Sandra Boynton books. About 8, I think? But we don't have Perfect Piggies! My son likes Barnyard Dance, Fifteen Animals, The Belly Button Book, and Oh My, Oh My, Oh Dinosuars! But other than Sandra Boynton, my son's favorite books right now are the "Look & Find" books and the pocket size Dr. Suess books (Go Dogs, Go!, The Foot Book and ABC's). Thanks for this giveaway!
