Happy Reading!

Today I’m participating in the Tuesday carnival from 5 Minutes for Books.  This week’s topic is kiddie lit — a book that your kids have read recently (or in my case of an almost-3-year-old and a 10-month-old, a book you have read to them) that they have enjoyed.  I could write a whole blog on this topic, of course, with our love of Barefoot Books!

One of our favorites here at home is The Parrot Tico Tango, written and illustrated by Anna Witte.

We love the rhyming text and the rich, vivid illustrations!   I love the message behind the story of this greedy parrot who steals fruit from his friends.   After a while, he can’t hold all the fruit so he drops it all, much to the delight of his friends who get all their fruit back and have a little party!   Poor Tico Tango must repent in order for him to participate, but has to give a little in return.

My daughter really likes to point out all the animals and their expressions, too (the tears, the surprise, etc.) and she’s always asking about the fruit and the kind of animal on each page (it’s nice because it’s not the usual “farmyard” animal, but monkeys, leopards, lizards, etc.).

Not only are we captivated by the colors, rhyme, and message, but it’s a great way to introduce children to some tropical fruits to eat.  How exciting at the store the other day to show my girls the figs, papaya and mango, and put it into context of the story that my daughter loves!
