Story Time: One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr Seuss


“From there to here, from here to there, funny things are everywhere” . . . So begins this classic Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss. Beginning with just five fish and continuing into flights of fancy, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish celebrates how much fun imagination can be. From the can-opening Zans to the boxing Gox to the winking Yink who drinks pink ink, the silly rhymes and colorful cast of characters create an entertaining approach to reading that will have every child giggling from morning to night: “Today is gone. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.”

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

Story Time: The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

So begins a story of unforgettable perception, beautifully written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein.

Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk...and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older he began to want more from the tree, and the tree gave and gave and gave.

This is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation. Shel Silverstein has created a moving parable for readers of all ages that offers an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return.

Story Time: Busy Busy Town by Richard Scarry

Join Lowly Worm, Huckle Cat, and other beloved characters for a day in Richard Scarry's Busy, Busy Town. Visit the school, the farm, the post office, and many more fun and exciting places in this classic book that teaches little ones all about what goes on in their very own communities.

You've Asked I'm Answering!

People are asking...
What is Storytime?

As most of you know Krissys Bookshelf Reviews has a lot of adult books in its review inventory but that isn't the only kind of books that I read and I love to share the books I love. 

So I've decided to feature some of those other reads.
Even though there wont be full reviews written for the children/kids books that I'll feature I will be posting a rating status for them.

That's where the hungry caterpillar comes in.

I'm sure most of you who know who he is if you've read Eric Carle's books. Which happen to be one of my favorite hence I've used him as my inspiration for ratings.

Three hungry caterpillars is the equivalent of a gold star, one is the equivalent of a bronze star. (3 = most liked, 1 = least liked.)

I look forward to sharing more books with the rest of you very soon! I hope the rest of you will join me in sharing my love of reading children's stories for that little kid at heart.
