In addition to the Valentine's Day books we covered here, this month's reads included some folk tales thanks to the monthly list from Read-Aloud Revival.

The Tortoise and the Hare, by Jerry Pinkney

One Fine Day, by Nonny Hogrogian

The Lion and the Mouse, by Jerry Pinkney

The Three Bears, by Paul Galdone

We're a little late getting our list out because a lot of the books were already checked out at our library. Maybe everyone had the same idea we did! Carolyn ended up loving the two Jerry Pinkney books - it's easy to see why he won the Caldecott Medal. What are your favorite folk tales to share with your kids?

"I liked it because all the people are nice and the stories are good. My favorite story was the hard times party one, because she thought people she was stuck up but then she found out that her dress was too small. The town she lives in, which is called Pitchfork, OR, gets a library, and she gets a book she wants called Black Beauty."
