Fun books for the pre-K set

Posted on Tuesday, August 14, 2012 by ThatLibraryLady

Fun books they'll keep coming back to:

Chickens to the Rescue

My son will sit for hours with Chickens to the Rescue by John Himmelman enjoying the hilarious mishaps as the chickens save the day, or at least think they do.

Also look for the 2 follow-up titles, Pigs to the Rescue and Cows to the Rescue.

Tacky the Penguin

Tacky the Penguin may not fit in but his eccentric behavior saves the day when hunters come with maps and traps.

Tacky stars in 7 more books by Helen Lester.

K is for Kissing a Cool Kangaroo Another clever title is K is for Kissing a Cool Kangaroo. Youngsters can learn the alphabet while looking at pictures filled with objects starting with that letter.
Minerva Louise

Minerva Louise is a naive chicken who loves to explore her world. Children will enjoy correcting her as she misidentifies common objects and places.

Minerva Louise continues her adventures in further titles.
