During Tot school with the girls we focus on one letter each week. This week is the letter E. Here is our Tot School Letter E 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 E Books:
8 An Animal Alphabet by Elisha Cooper – The book features animals for each letter and on each page there is one animal represented eight times. At the end of the book there is a “Did you know?” section about each animal. Preschool – Kindergarten
The Saggy Baggy Elephant by K. Jackson – After a parrot makes fun of Sooki’s big ears, long nose, and wrinkled skin, the “saggy baggy” elephant isn’t too sure of himself. But once he meets some beautiful creatures who look just like him, Sooki is overjoyed. Preschool – 2nd grade
Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss – Horton is kind and trustworthy, but unfortunately, the lazy bird Mayzie takes advantage of his good nature when she leaves Horton to watch her unhatched egg. This is a fun but challenging book for the girls. Although they both really enjoyed it. Kindergarten – 4th grade
Polite Elephant by Richard Scarry – When it comes to visiting a neighbor, enjoying a meal, or hosting a playdate, no one does it with better manners than the polite elephant. What a good elephant! He always remembers his manners! 🙂 Preschool – Kindergarten

Elephant’s Story by Tracey Campbell Pearson – Elephant finds a book that Gracie lost and then sneezes, mixing up all the letters. Elephant asks some of his friends to help put the letters back but they have other ideas for the letters. Luckily, Gracie finds elephant while searching for her book and helps put the letters back and adds some of her own. Preschool – 1st grade
Egg in the Hole by Richard Scarry – Henny laid an egg and then lost it. Henny searches all over for her egg. The girls’ loved this story. That poor hen chasing her egg all over the place! Preschool

Counting from 1 to 10 and down again, the spares text lists geographic features and animals. There are four unillustrated closing pages that add descriptive details about the planet.

After asking several passing trains for help over the hill, a little blue train agrees to help the stranded toys. Even though she is small, the blue train tries her best to bring the toys to the children on the other side of the hill. We have the original addition which is kinda long for the girls.
