Grandma’s Bookbag

Follow the Trail Trucks is a Dorling Kindersley book. This book has lines to be finger traced, taking a truck from one destination to another. I wasn’t sure that the children would find this book interesting enough, but they usually choose it from the book bag and greatly enjoy following the trails. My grandchildren observe with me how the two-year-olds take short cuts with the trails, while the three-year-olds want to follow the loops in the trails backward, and the four-year-olds have it all down perfectly.

Bear Feels Sick by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman. This is one of my favorite picture books, and I am delighted the children like it and pick it often. In the story, Bear has a cold, and all the animals are doing what they can to help him feel better. We enjoy reading and saying together the phrase repeated through the book, “And the bear feels sick!” In the end, bear feels good and is ready to play, but then all his friends are getting sick. Bear tells them he will take care of them like they took care of him.

  1. I look forward to your Book Bag selections!!! Thanks for sharing!!!! I really enjoy children’s literature!!!

  2. Your book bag brings back such good memories for me of when my girl was that age. We spent so many hours reading together and right now as a teenager we are reading aloud THREE books together daily. I’ll never tire of this with her.
    Your book bag posts are among some of my favs.


      1. Thank you for sharing these. I am a brand new grandma with a one week old grandson but I also still have a two and five year at home. I am always on the lookout for new books. I look forward to the day the three of them can listen together!

  3. Bear Feels Sick was one of my children’s favorites! Did you know there are several books about Bear by the same author? They are all equally sweet. We found them all at the library…

    1. Yes, I see on the book jacket the other Bear books. But one family already has a couple of them, and a couple others are ones we wouldn’t choose to read.

  4. Thank you for sharing the book recommendations. I like the idea of the bear book to read to little ones when they are recuperating. I also really enjoy the clear formatting and interesting illustrations in DK books.

    1. We read Bear Feels Sick all year round almost every reading day because I let them pick, and they usually choose it. They have it memorized but like best saying “sick” when the story line says repeatedly, “And the bear feels SICK!”
