Rabbits and Raindrops

Jennifer is the newest guest blogger on this blog.  She will be reviewing children’s books.

**************************************************************************************************************************************

My children and I love to cuddle together with a good book. I grew up surrounded by books, good books and delight in giving my children the same experience. When they were all still little I started to keep a list of books we enjoyed – for our own reference and to share with others.

Jim Arnosky is a favourite author. His books feature gorgeous, realistic artwork of nature. They are “scientific” without seeming to be. For example, did you know that raindrops are actually round in shape? Read “Rabbits and Raindrops” and you will learn that.

The pictures in Mr. Arnosky’s books will hold the attention of your toddlers until they are old enough to appreciate the story. That makes these books a bonus for busy moms with an age spread – one book to satisfy everyone. Here is a partial listing of his books.

ALL NIGHT NEAR THE WATER

EVERY AUTUMN COMES THE BEAR

OTTERS UNDER WATER

RABBITS AND RAINDROPS

RACCOONS AND RIPE CORN

Raccoons and Ripe Corn (Reading Rainbow Book)

These are just a few of the many, many books Mr. Arnosky has written.
So take a walk to a library, borrow a couple of these wonderful books and enjoy some down time with your little ones.
