What's on our library shelf

I like to say that we have an extension of the Toronto Public Library at our house. Here is what we are reading these days.


Informational  books


Gravity is a Mystery, The Sun our Nearest Star, What Makes Day and Night, The Sun is Always Shining Everywhere, What Happens to a Hamburger, Air is All Around you  all from Let's Read-and-Find-out-Science Series. We have been working on a space lapbook which is taking ages to come to life (thanks to mama who has not prepared the pockets for the it yet)


Good Enough to Eat: A Kid's guide to Food and Nutrition by Lizzy Rockwell

A Reason for a Flower by Ruth Heller

Picture Books
