Let’s Start at the Very Beginning…

After all this talk of graduation, I’ve been thinking about those first baby steps into reading and math. Here are a couple of books I think of fondly, even now. ☺

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault is the best ABC book ever! It’s got such great rhythm: “A told B and B told C, I’ll meet you at the top of the coconut tree.” You can’t help but bop and bounce as you read. I never get tired of this one- twenty years and still know the words (and my alphabet – hee hee). Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! For babies, toddlers, and young readers.

Five Little Ducks by Raffi and Jose Aruego does simple backward counting from 5 to 1. It’s actually the song that I love. So if you get this one, I recommend getting hold of a copy of Raffi singing. After listening, you and your children can easily sing this on your own. You might find yourself humming while your cooking or even as you walk down the street (know that feeling?!) For babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.
