Welcome to “Book Love with Cassey and Keiden”! I’m Cassey, and Keiden is my very-almost 2 year old son. We are a family of readers; we have book subscriptions, library cards and any gift-giving occassion comes with at least one book.
Every two weeks, I will be sharing our favourite children’s books with you, along with giving you an out-of-five rating on how much Keiden loves rereading the book, and how much I love rereading it. This week we are looking at The Things I Love About School by Trace Moroney.
The Things I Love About School is one of a series of 8 “The things I love about…” books; alongside The Things I Love about Playtime; The Things I Love about Pets; The Things I Love about Me; The Things I Love about Grandparents; The Things I Love about Bedtime; The Things I Love about Family; and The Things I Love about Friends.
This is one of the books we read in preparation for Keiden going to school. It was an excellent gift from one of his cousins; well, my sister in law picked it out. This story is all about the bunny excitedly sharing all he / she loves about school.
Bunny’s gender isn’t clearly apparent, as bunny wears an orange top with jeans, making it very easy for your child to see him / herself as bunny; learning all sorts of new things and having a good time. The illustrations are lively and fun, with lots of little details for your little one to pick out.
Keiden loves this book. It’s one of his two go-to choices for bedtime reading. And each time, it’s a minimum of three reads.
Clearly Keiden gives it a 5/5 on the rereading scale, I give it a 5/5 too. It’s something we believe has helped him ease into school a smidge better.
