During Tot school with the girls we focus on one letter each week. This week is the letter Q. Here is our Tot School Letter Q 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 Q Books:
Here are the books we read:
The Nesting Quilt by Cathryn Falwell – Maya is going to be a big sister. With the help of her Nana she makes a quilt for the new baby. Preschool – 3rd grade
Quiet Bunny by Lisa McCue – Quiet bunny longs to join in the music the other animals make but he can’t make noise like them until he finds his own special “song”. They girls liked this book and had fun making noises too. Preschool – 1st grade
Queen of the World by Thomas F. Yezerski – Three sisters with nothing in common, sibling rivalry is bond to occur. They fight over everything and even make their mom cry on her birthday until they realize what mom really wants. Cute story, great opportunity to talk to the girls about sibling rivalry, and what really matters. Preschool – 3rd grade
Once Upon An Alphabet: Short Stories for All the Letters by Oliver Jeffers – From short little one page stories to longer tales, this book is full of stories for each letter. While not specifically about the letter Q it worked well for us. Preschool
The Queen of Style by Caralyn Buehner – A bored queen “goes” to beauty school and demands her subjects and their sheep be her models. I loved being able to talk to the girls about how demanding from others and not listening/respecting them can cause problems and how listening/respecting others makes things go smoother. Preschool – 1st grade
The Queen of France by Tim Wadham – When Rosie is feeling royal she dresses up and pretends to be the queen and asks Rosie’s parents where Rosie is. Rosie’s parents play right along with her while still letting Rosie know they prefer Rosie as Rosie. I enjoyed the great imagination the little girl had and how her parents played along with her. Preschool – 3rd grade
The Umbrella Queen by Shirin Bridges – Noot is finally allowed to paint umbrellas and she paints the same designs as her family until her imagination takes over. After getting in trouble she goes back to the traditional painting and paints her fun creations on scrap umbrellas. But Noot wonders who the King will choose as the umbrella queen. This is a great story. I learned something along with the girls. And sometimes it is okay to break tradition. Kindergarten – 3rd grade
Queen Victoria’s Bathing Machine by Gloria Whelan – This is a true story and it’s awesome. The girls and I both enjoyed learning about this little overlooked tidbit of history. Kindergarten – 3rd grade
The Very Quiet Cricket by Eric Carle – The little cricket tries so hard to talk to other insects but just can’t until he meets someone special. Preschool – Kindergarten
Dr. Seuss’s ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book by Dr. Seuss – I have read this classic Dr. Seuss book so many times that I do not even need to look at the words or pictures to recite it. The girls love it. Preschool – Kindergarten
