“A Child’s Introduction to Poetry” by Michael Driscoll

This book looks so cool!  It gives kids an overview of poetry genres (like haiku, free verse, limericks); it introduces them to famous poets (like Maya Angelou and Shakespeare); and it exposes them to classic poems.  Not only that, but the watercolor drawings are great and it comes with an audio CD.  What a great introduction to poetry for little ones!

“101 Favorite Stories From the Bible” by Ura Miller

A great Bible to use with preschool and early-elementary kids especially read aloud.  Stories are condensed from the Biblical version, but still with plenty of detail.  The pictures are colorful, traditional styling, non-animated.  Each story has comprehension questions for the kids to answer, as well as a Scripture verse that could be used as a memory verse.

“Cezanne and the Apple Boy” by Laurence Anholt

Part of a great series of books for children about famous artists.  All of the stories are based on real-life interactions the artists had with children.  The illustrations are sweet, and the books also feature reproductions of famous art by the artist in question.  I think this series makes “fancy” famous artwork and artists so approachable to kids.
