New For the Youngest Readers

Here's a stack of new books from Marshall Cavendish that are sure to make our preschool or kindergarten teachers very happy!

My Big Rig by Jonathan London. A little boy imagines his trip across the country in his big rig. He's home by dinner time!

Firefighters! Speeding! Spraying! Saving! by Patricia Hubbell. This is a very "noisy" book, perfect for before and after a visit to the fire station that is just down the street from our school.


Shells! Shells! Shells! by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace. Lots of information about shells is given in the course of a story about Buddy (a teddy bear) and his visit to the beach. The illustrations were made using recycled paper, markers, crayons, colored pencils, and actual shells.

And what would the start of a child's school career be without a book about adjusting to leaving mommy? In Eliza's Kindergarten Surprise by Alice B. McGinty, it turns out that perhaps mommy was missing Eliza, too!

  1. For some reason the subtitle "Speeding! Spraying! Saving!" totally cracks me up. Thanks for the recs - one can never have too many truck books (fire or otherwise).

  2. Nice finds...love that shells is made from recycled materials. What a great artifact to read and talk about with the kids in my recycling unit!
