During Tot school with the girls we focus on one letter each week. This week is the letter D. Here is our Tot School Letter D 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 D Books:
The Desert Alphabet Book by Jerry Pallotta – From desert dwelling animals and plants to rock formations and landscapes this book covers it all. 1st – 3rd grade
Good Night, Little Dragons by Leigh Ann Tyson – How do little Dragons get ready for bed? Almost the same way little kids do! The girls loved this book! Preschool – Kindergarten
Have You Seen My Dinosaur? by Jon Surgal – A missing dinosaur and no one has seen him. The girls loved pointing out where the dinosaur was hiding. Preschool – 1st grade
How Do You Count a Dozen Ducklings? By In Seon Chae – A mama duck with a dozen eggs has to do a lot of counting! She finds clever new ways to count to twelve–by twos, threes, fours, and sixes! Preschool – Kindergarten
The Dragon ABC Hunt by Loreen Leedy – Ten little dragons try to find an object for each letter of the alphabet. We love Loreen Leedy’s dragon books. Preschool – Kindergarten
Go, Dog Go by P.D. Eastman – From big dogs and little dogs to red, green, and blue dogs, dogs going up and dogs going fast . . . who knew dogs were so busy? We love this book! Cakey and Doodles are now “reading” it to us! Preschool – 2nd grade
Oh, Say Can You Say Di-no-saur? by Bonnie Worth – Travel with The Cat in the Hat back millions of years to see the fossils and then travel through the Super Dino Museum. This is a challenging book even for me! If it were not for the pronunciations I would not have been able to say most of the dinosaur names. Preschool – 3rd grade
How Droofus the Dragon Lost His Head by Bill Peet – Droofus the kindly dragon has a price on his head, but the small boy who befriends him refuses to sell him to the king. Another great Bill Peet book. This one is a bit long for toddlers but my girls sat through it and requested it again later! Preschool – 3rd grade
Dinosaurs Love Underpants by Claire Freedman – The mystery of dinosaur extinction is solved! Scientists have plenty of theories about why dinosaurs are extinct, but the real answer is… The dinos were wiped out in an Underpants War! This book is just plain silly like the title makes it sound. The girls loved it and giggled a bunch. Preschool – 2nd grade
A Number of Dragons by Loreen Leedy – Introduces the numbers one through ten as a group of young dragons play together and alone. The girls really like this book and ask for it often. Preschool – Kindergarten
