During Tot school with the girls we focus on one letter each week. This week is the letter C. Here is our Tot School Letter C Books list.
I have been trying to read about 2 books a day or 10 books a week that fall in the theme for that week. Of course, our main focus is letters but sometimes I’ll throw in a book or two about numbers, shapes, or colors.
I am teaching both Cakey and Doodles. Although I’m teaching at Cakey’s level, I try to throw in a book or two for Doodles each week, but a good majority of the books are above both the girls. I love to challenge them through reading this way. Interestingly enough after just few weeks of doing this, both the girls are enjoying and asking for the more challenging books to be read during “non-school” time!
Below is a list of books we read for Tot School Letter C Books:
Calavera Abecedario A Day of the Dead Alphabet Book by Jeanette Winter – Every year Don Pedro and his sons make paper-mache skeletons for Mexico’s Day of the Dead. A fun alphabet book written in English with Spanish sprinkled in. Preschool – 3rd grade
Charles T. Cup by Dalen Keys – This books is about a tea cup who thinks he’s the bomb and treats others as if they are below him. Then he has an accident and ends up not being so pretty and perfect anymore. He ends up working at a mission helping others and realizes that serving others makes your life more rewarding. I think it’s a cute book, a little above the girls understanding right now but it has a great message. Preschool – 3rd grade
C Is for Clown a Circus of C Words by The Berenstains – A simple, fun book full of “C” words. Preschool – 2nd grade
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault – A rollicking alphabet chant about the alphabet letters racing to the top of the coconut tree. Baby – Kindergarten
The Worst Helper Ever by Richard Scarry – Farmer Pig needs a helper. Charlie Cat can help. Although as you will see Charlie is not a very good helper. He causes hilarious mayhem while trying to assist with the chores. The girls thought it was funny especially seeing Charlie Cat drive and Farmer Pig drive! Preschool – 1st grade
Capyboppy – We love Bill Peet books! Capyboppy is about the Peet family’s adventures having a pet cabybara. It’s funny and sometimes crazy! The girls liked it but it was a bit long for them and was a bit above their comprehension level. Preschool – 3rd grade
The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss – On cold, wet day a brother and sister are stuck in the house with nothing to do . . . until a giant cat in a hat shows up. The Cat in the Hat transforms their dull day into a madcap adventure and almost wrecking the place in the process! This is a classic and the girls love it! Preschool – 2nd grade
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle – A newly hatched caterpillar eats his way through just about everything! Both of my girls love this book. Baby to Preschool
Corduroy by Don Freeman – A sweet story of a bear waiting for a child to take him home. The girls enjoyed it. They were both so sad when Corduroy didn’t get to go home with the little girl but were overjoyed when he got to go home with his friend! Preschool – Kindergarten
The Cat in the Hat Comes Back by Dr. Seuss – The Cat in The Hat returns for more outrageous fun on a winter day when the kids are stuck shoveling snow. I had never read this book until I read it to the girls. Preschool – 2nd grade
Counting Crows by Kathi Appelt – A fun counting book full of rhyming text as one, two, three up to twelve crows look for a snack. Preschool – 3rd grade
