Christmas Loot #2: Superhero Style!

Today I am highlighting my son's literary loot from Christmas.  He is a huge fan of superheroes as you will probably gather from the pictures, but he will read just about anything.  Nothing calms this kid more than sitting down with a book!

Great Grandparents:  If You Take A Mouse To The Movies:  A Special Christmas Edition by Laura Numeroff
Mom & Dad:  Can I Play Too? by Mo Willems
School Book Exchange:  Superman:  I Am Superman by Michael Teitelbaum
Giftcard from Grandparents:  Batman:  Feline Felons by John Sazaklis, Steven E. Gordon, & Bob Kane
School Book Exchange:  DC Super Friends:  Flying High by Nick Eliopulos
Giftcard From Grandparents:  Marvel Adventures Hulk:  Defenders by Paul Benjamin

Mom & Dad:  Scholastic Set of Funny Fairy Tales including . . .
The Emperor's New Poodle
The Elephants and the Shirtmaker
Goldilocks and the Three Baboons
The Tortoise and the Hare Race Again
The Ugly Guppy

Last, but not least, I thought I would also share a family pick here since it was my son that choose this one.  While we were spending our giftcards yesterday, we found this book marked down and I realized that I had not yet bought our annual holiday book.  I believe that everyone needs a nice copy of 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, and this copy by Clement Clark Moore and illustrated by Jon Goodell was one that was hard to pass up!  I gave in, like I usually do with books, so it is now a part of our collection as well!  Unfortunately, my son knows my weakness!

What titles do you think would be a good choice for a Kindergartner?  


  1. Maybe it's just a girl thing but I don't think so because they're just funny...Junie B. Jones.

  2. christine . . . I've been looking at those, but have never read them! I will try to pick one up next time at the library because I've heard lots of good things about them!

  3. I like that Scholastic Set with all the funny names.

  4. Melina . . . They are cute, aren't they?!? I can't wait to read them all with my kids!
