Here are the books in the book basket for this week…

I Don't Have Your Eyes by Carrie A. Kitze, Rob Williams ( Illustrator)

This book is a nice portrait of a transracial family due to adoption. The family is Caucasian with an Asian-adopted child. The child learns that while she doesn’t share her family’s looks, there are lots of things they do share!


You Are My I Love You by Maryann K. Cusimano, Satomi Ichikawa ( Illustrator)

  A sweet book about a father’s love for his little one.


Chameleon Swims, bilingual Vietnamese-English version, by Laura Hambleton

 We have the Vietnamese-English version of this book.  Monkey loves hearing the Vietnamese, and it’s a fantastic way to introduce a foreign language into her homeschooling.  (Since Monkey was born in Vietnam, she’s already had some exposure.  She also is currently obsessed with anything from Vietnam!)


I Love You Through and Through by Rossetti-Shustak, Caroline Jayne Church ( Illustrator)

A lovely gentle book about unconditional love for a little one.  As an added bonus, the book also teaches opposites!

1, 2, 3 To The Zoo by Eric Carle

 We’ve always loved Eric Carle books in our family.  This one does not disappoint, with the usual beautiful illustrations and simple sentences.  This book is fantastic at helping the little ones be exposed to colors, numbers, and zoo animals.



I'm the Biggest Thing in the Ocean by Kevin Sherry

A colorful, humerous book about an octopus who thinks he is the biggest thing in the ocean.  The book also teaches the names of various aquatic animals.

    Yikes, I didn’t know that! Hopefully I changed it…I switched one of the settings around. 🙂
