Summer is finally which means new books on the bookshelf! Though I do not rotate books only in seasons but once/twice a month. Books are everywhere in our house and I always enjoy reading them together.
Unfortunately, I didn’t find any Arabic or Russian books in our local library but here is a compilation of some French/English books we enjoy:
What Are You Doing, Sam? by Marie-Louise Gay: A charming book about 2 siblings: Sam& Stella. Great story with beautiful illustrations.
Little Red’s Summer Adventure by Sarah The Duchess of York Ferguson: A little long story for a toddler to read it all at once though we read 1/2 pages a day. Not our favorite but we like it.
Summer by Stephanie Turnbull
Sunlight by Erin Edison: A wonderful book about weather. Due to the daily changes in the weather, Anya has been showing interest in the rain, the sun, thunderstorms, etc. This book came at the right time! We picked up and we weren’t disappointed! The illustrations are realistic and so beautiful. Also, the information is not overwhelming and easily understood by toddlers/preschoolers.
Vanilla Ice Cream by Bob Graham
Une nuit, loin d’ici by Julia Wauters: A sublime album that compiled more than a hundred species from different parts of the Earth: Savannah, Russian taiga, Amazonian jungle, and oceans. The pictures are so simple and original. A system of layers hides the multitude of mammals, birds, insects, etc that are slowly revealed to the reader throughout his lecture!
Ma maison by Danielle Malenfant: It is a story of a little boy who shares a brief house tour of his home. We discover it through the boy’s perspective which is wonderful! He shares his thoughts and his feelings. The illustrations are very detailed and we are very impressed!
L’été by Núria Roca
La robe d’été by Eve Herrmann: A short story about two sisters who are looking for a summer dress to wear. Beautiful scene of everyday life that tell you that it is okay to have strong feelings and to express them. We love the fact that it is written in cursive!!
We are always looking for new Montessori-friendly books to read. Feel free to share your finds!.
