What Isla is Reading v.2

Back in May I shared some of Isla's favorite books and thought I'd do a follow up.  Girlfriend LOOOVES to read books.  Over and over and over and over and over again.  I am so thankful we have a ton of books to keep switching out or I might start twitching haha.

Disney Nursery Rhymes - I like this book and Isla has started nodding and swaying to the beat of the different rhymes when I'm reading.  It's pretty neat.  Her favorites are This Little Piggy, Rub a Dub Dub, and Pat- A - Cake. I could probably write a whole post on how weird some of the nursery rhymes are.  Seriously.  Oh, and it comes with a CD but we have actually not listened to it.  And we probably won't. haha

Corduroy - This is a new favorite and I am impressed she will sit through it.  She has sat on my lap through the whole book twice, but usually will get up and play about half-way through but gives me a glare if I stop reading, so I continue reading it while she plays.  Also, I do not know if it is our copy or the book in general but it has at least one error and the writing just doesn't flow.  I remember loving this book so I am a bit disappointed.

Goodnight Moon - I am STOKED that she finally wants to read this over and over and over again.  This is my favorite kids book.  I love the different voice I can give it, I love that we can talk about kittens, and mittens and I love that Isla is starting to make a hush signal with me when we say goodnight to the old lady whispering hush.  Goodnight, room.  ;) LOOOOVE

The Very Hungry Caterpillar - This one she likes because there are holes to put her fingers in! She doesn't ever sit through this whole book but she loves to put her fingers in the holes and helps me turn the little tabs of pages for the days of the week.  I will admit, I was never a huge fan of Eric Carle or this book, but reading it to Isla has made me me like it a bit more but something that irks me is that it uses the words anymore twice in one sentence and since I read this book about 34234324 times in a row it just makes me stabby. 

We of course always read some Dr. Seuss and she loves this one Elmo book my aunt got her (I think it is Itsy Bitsy Spider) that I actually don't mind because it gives grate factual information about stuff and plays music which Isla loves.

What are some of your favorite kid books?
