Books on Alex’s Nightstand

I don’t always share the books that Alex has been enjoying and thought I should try to get in more of a routine with that.  Today I returned a PILE of books to the library and pulled out three that he seemed to especially enjoy.

Papa is a Pirate by Katharina Grossmann-HenseI won’t say that this was  a book that either Matt or I enjoyed, we frankly thought it was rather silly – but in a cute way. Alex really enjoyed it though – and that’s all that matters.  If your little one enjoys Pirates, then they will like this book.

Pooch on the Loose by Steven KrollPooch on the Loose by Steven KrollThis book was a lot of fun. It’s about a little dog who is bored of his routine life in NYC and decides to take a run for it one day and explore the city at Christmas time. He checks out all the major attractions, and eventually he feels lonlely and hungry and decides to go home. It really made me want to go back to Manhattan… Alex loved the puppy and his adventures and as you know he LOVES Christmas!

Mooses Come Walking by Arlo Guthrie

Mooses Come Walking by Arlo Guthrie

This sort book was a hoot! It’s a poem written by Guthrie and while it may not necessarily be 100% age appropriate, Alex enjoyed it (and so did I).
