Fire Engine Man and Digger Man
Fire Engine Man and Digger Man are simple board books with engaging illustrations. The one-sentence-per-page story line involves a little boy who loves his play enough to think about some day doing it as a vocation. He imagines all he would do if he were a real fireman or a digger man. One of the best parts for me is that he has a little brother and includes him through out each book.
Momma, Will You?
Momma, Will You? by Dori Chaconas was recommended by a reader of the Grandma’s Book Bag series. It turned out to be a favorite, especially with three-year-old Benjamin. This simple story has a farm setting with a mommy and two children. The children ask mommy one question per page about something they might do with one of the animals, giving her a choice of answering, “Yes, or no, or maybe.”
On the following page, Mommy gives the answer with a cute explanation. Benjamin loves guessing what the answer will be, and the more we read the book, of course, the less guessing!
The illustrations are outstanding and truly make this book a delight to read.
Trusting in Jesus,
“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and
power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure
they are and were created” (Revelation 4:11).
