Favorite Books

Every person has a favorite book! Mrs. Conte's favorite is Goodnight Moon because it's the one that she reads to little Charlie every night before he goes to bed. In a great green room, tucked away in bed, the little bunny says, "Goodnight room, goodnight moon." Then to all the familiar things in the softly lit room - to the picture of the three little bears sitting in chairs, to the clocks and his socks, to the mittens and the kittens, to everything one by one - he says goodnight. What a perfect lulling book for the end of the day! Good night, little Charlie...


Mrs. Timmons' favorite book is Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What do You Hear? Like Mrs. Conte, she also has a little one at home and little Kallyn loves this special Bill Martin, Jr. book that is illustrated by Eric Carle. It's the perfect book to follow the beloved Brown, Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by the same author and illustrator. This book appeals to Kallyn's sense of hearing as it moves through simple rhymes and colorful illustrations...


Mrs. T has a favorite book too. She loves The Three Billy Goats Gruff which is one of our "Star" books. When her daughter Courtney was in kindergarten, it was her favorite book. Courtney loved changing her voice to be the big, gruff billy goat and then to change her voice again to be the wee, little billy goat. She would dissolve into laughter every time! Of course, Mrs. T's little one isn't so little any more! Courtney is a Senior at FSU majoring in... Early Childhood Education! She wants to be a teacher! Mrs. T hopes that all of her kindergartners will love this book as much as Courtney did. She hopes the children will ask their parents to read it over and over and over and over...


We were just wondering what your child's favorite book is... Leave us a comment and let us know his/her favorite!

My four year old daughter's favorite book is also Polar Bear, Polar Bear, what do you hear? When she tries to retell it she can't say "boa constrictor" and instead it comes out "bo sticter". I just love to hear her retelling a book she loves. :)

The kids love "Goodnight Moon" also but Matthew's favorite for nighttime story time is "So Many Bunnies." He loves Number 13, Mandy who slept in the candy.

Matthew loves "Goodnight Moon" but his favorite now is "So Many Bunnies." His favorite bunny is Mandy that sleeps in the candy. Imagine that from a six-year-old
