Books With Benny

 From his earliest days, Benny loved books. 

He enjoyed looking at  the colors and shapes. 

He then discovered the rhythm of the sounds and words.

And now, at the age of 5, he has become my go to book critic.

Benny appears to be a lover of the classics. These two were favorites last summer. We blob painted clouds and ate strawberries for lunch after reading these!

Two of his favorites last summer.

A favorite from our last reading time was a more recently published book.


The Most Magnificent Thing, written and illustrated by Ashley Spires is the story of a little girl who is determined to build the "most magnificent thing" and sets about with the help of her dog to collect objects to use. As she works, she's not satisfied with any one creation, but at the end, by taking something from each one, she finally admits she has built the most magnificent thing!

This is a perfect book for a little guy or gal who also loves to build things. Benny spends time building with duplos, blocks, and recently has taken on Legos. He studies the illustrations to understand how to place the pieces and focuses on the task at hand until completion. He is developing building blocks to reading and doesn't even know it! 

Benny gave this book: 2 Thumbs Up. 👍👍
