A favorite finger puppet book

This meme was started by Sheila at Book Journey and the kids’ version has been adapted by Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Texts.

Isabelle selected a few books to have me read to her this afternoon: The Alphabet with Wild Animals by Mélanie Watt, Discover Opposites, which is a Smithsonian Institution board book, and Trucks, which is a Bright Baby Book. But perhaps the one she loves the most (that she selected) is The Very Hungry Caterpillar’s Finger Puppet Book by Eric Carle. It contains an endearing, 3D caterpillar who can wiggle (& talk when impersonated by yours truly). We read the book several times with more and more giggles on every subsequent read. It may be a basic counting book, but there’s a lot of ad libbing one an do to add-on to each page, which contains illustrations of fruits, to make it a more enriching read.
