Sharon’s Book Recommendations for Kids

Just One More by Jennifer Hansen Rolli

This book is very good for little ones,  bright colorful illustrations and very easy text.

Ruby just wants one more of everything!!!!   One more scoop of ice cream, one more push on the swing……one more, one more one more……

Everything’s Better With A Beard by Si, Willie, Phil, Jase,Jep and Alan Robertson

Most kids know Duck Dynasty, here’s a book just for them. (Although I think adults will enjoy this also).

It rhymes and has real pictures instead of illustrations.  The text is funny and the pictures even funnier!

Miss You Like Crazy by Pamela Hall

    Very good book about how a child feels when his/her parent goes off to work.  It is a reassuring story for children that shows parents love you even when you are apart.
