What We Are Reading

A quick look at the books we are reading this week:

1. Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site. by Sherri Duskey Rinker, illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld.

2. The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales. By Jon Scieszka, illustrated by Lane Smith. The humor in this book is a little advanced for the 2-year-old, but he loves the story of the Gingerbread Man and thinks the Stinky Cheese Man variation is pretty funny.  Bonus is that I get to hear him say “Stinky Cheese Man” a lot.  It is cute.

3. Two at the Zoo. By Danna Smith, illustrated by Valeria Petrone. Counting continues to be the meme du jour around here.  Any and all counting books are having a resurgence of popularity.  This book also includes a train, albeit briefly, so that wins it extra points, too.

4. The Train They Call the City of New Orleans. By Steve Goodman, illustrated by Michael McCurdy. Oh, an honest-to-goodness train book! Lots of cool train pictures in this one.  After this one, I personally I would like a moratorium on depressing books about the end of the steam train era.

5. That’s How. By Christoph Niemann. Also involves a train, in case anyone is keeping score.
