Pustakalana Bag of Books #5 (2-5 years)

  1. Ten, Nine, Eight (Molly Bang) - Boardbook 24 pages

"This beguiling picture book, with a palette of eye-filling colors, appears to arise from the love binding a father and his little `big' girl who turn bedtime into playtime with a rhyming game."--Publishers Weekly. "A loving book, perfect for sharing with the youngest lapsitters."--Booklist.
    1. The Little Engine That Could (Watty Piper)

    I think I can! I think I can!" This well-loved classic tale of the Little Blue Engine who isn't afraid to try has and will continue to inspire and entertain generations of children.

    1. Olivia (Ian Falconer)

    Preschoolers (and their parents) will see themselves in Olivia--a typical high-energy, over-the-top kid who likes the beach and Degas paintings, but hates naps. On the other hand, she combs her ears and is unusually gifted at sandcastle building. While we are certainly reminded of Eloise, Falconer's portrait is simpler in scope, less demented, and, as a result, less adult. Bottom line: precocious is fun, and we're tickled pink to have Olivia join the parade of, let's just say, individualistic youngsters. (Ages 4 to 8) --Karin Snelson.

    1. One Mitten (Kristine O’Connell George)

    This fun wintertime book shows the creative things you can do with just one mitten in a sweet, comical way. The child does eventually find her other mitten, so she shows what can be done with two. It's good-natured fun. Especially great for K-1st graders. Younger readers can certainly enjoy it with mom or dad as the reader.

    1. Wemberly Worried (Keven Henkes) - Paperback 32 pages

    Wemberly worried about spilling her juice, about shrinking in the bathtub, even about snakes in the radiator. She worried morning, noon, and night. "Worry, worry, worry," her family said. "Too much worry." And Wemberly worried about one thing most of all: her first day of school. But when she meets a fellow worrywart in her class, Wemberly realizes that school is too much fun to waste time worrying!
