Who Hearts The Gruffalo?



After church on Sunday, we stopped by the library to return some books, as well as to borrow some more.  While we were there, Zoë decided to read one.

Gruffalo1



She took out Julia Donaldson’s The Gruffalo.  We have this same book at home and she loves it.

I have never heard of the gruffalo, but maybe I will look into it and end of hearting it! Zoe certainly looks like she is enjoying it. our current favorites are Animalia, Uno's Garden, Little Pea and The Giving Tree.

There are so many, but right now I still love Stellaluna. Sam got Pinduli from the Easter Bunny. :)

Sweet, sweet captures!

i don't think i could really pick a favorite book from when i was little but i think my favorite series was The Little Critter. I can remember every night reading one of the many many books in the series before bed (:

Sweet, sweet shots. I just love her smile!

N.'s favorites lately have been "The Giving Tree" and "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." She really loves "The Giving Tree." She even plays it out - we swtich, sometimes I'm the tree and she's the boy, sometimes it's the other way around.

We love the Gruffalo!! 'A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood.
A fox saw the mouse and the mouse looked good...' hehe
We also love The Gobbling Tree, Wombat Stew and any Charlie and Lola books :)
These pictures are so sweet, I think I'll have to take my camera to the library next time! We go to story time and & craft every Thursday and I take William on a Monday too, but he just likes to run around, lol.

I love how natural these are...just capturing the joy of books!

Jessie said...

We love, love, love Julia Donaldson! If you liked The Gruffalo check out Room on the Broom and The Spiffiest Giant in Town. I just love the way her books flow from my mouth and the girls love the repeating verses and will read out loud with me. Gorgeous shots, as always mama!

Maddy said...

I'm a little behind on what's the latest in children's book, but I was a big fan of Dr. Seuss as a kid :) As for Zoe...does she ever not smile?! She's so adorable!

Sonya said...

I've not heard of that book before. Zoe is so adorable and I love the clothes you dress her in :) As for my favorite books..I honestly can't remember. I do know as I got older I loved the books by Beverly Cleary. I also read The Box Car Children, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory..I love books..lol

Nicole said...

How lovely. We'll have to check out that book. Lorelei loves a great book. She seems to be developing a taste for certain illustrations and subjects which is neat to see. Lovely photos today!

Krystal said...

she is precious! that excitement for reading is so cute :)

sherri lynn said...

I've never read this book, but now I want to get it for my nieces if it's a favorite in your household! I love The Giving Tree. And anything by Sandra Boynton!

Jane said...

Beautiful photos, in what I imagine was not the best of light in the library. Right now my four year old just loves Pinkalicious and Fancy Nancy. But I love the David Shannon and Mo Willems books, Gorgonzola and Diary of a Worm. We both love Pout Pout Fish - that is a lovely book too.

Love Letters To China said...

What beautiful photos of your little girl. I'm not familiar with The Gruffalo. My little one is consumed with Batman and Transformer books right now. My big girl just finished reading 8 books over her spring vacation. I think she's really enjoying author Judy Blume and her Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing series. I'm just so happy they both enjoy reading. My hubby and I are lovers of anything literary.

I've never seen the Gruffalo, but I KNOW I heart the library!!!

Beautiful post!

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Oh she is adorable. Her dress is so sweet! Beautiful photos. I love the library. Always have. :)

Nezzy said...

Oh baby, I read so many to my eight grandkiddos it would be hard for me to pick a fav. I do love readin' the Dr. Seuss books out-loud...they are just so fun! :o)

I would love to have Zoe read The Gruffalo to me. I'm not familiar with that book. I'll have to check this one out.

God bless ya and have a super~great day sweetie!

Jennifer Bowen said...

Your daughter is so adorable, B-mama! Love that she looks so involved with reading her favorite book.

Danelle said...

What sweet photos! My kids are older so they're into Harry Potter and that sort of thing. Not nearly as cute! :)

Dirt On The Rocks said...

How adorable! I need to start bringing my son to the library get his mind stimulated. Anyway, these are great pictures.

The GruffaloI should look that up for my son. I'm not quite familiar with it.

Tamar SB said...

I love seeing little kids at my local library! It makes me so happy to know that they will have a love for books one day and know what a great place the library is! And not to mention Zoe chose an excellent book!

The Giving Tree - a fond favorite!

Erika B said...

Sweet shots for sure! My girls love books too and we are sooo happy about that. The oldest reads by herself now but she still loves bedtime story. Right now we are reading a lot about Paddington Bear.
