Raising a Reader – Books on Wild Animals 

My last post was all about wild animal themed Montessori activities, while we do themed activities we read and browse through many books relevant to the theme.


Little N is 22 months old and loves books with bright pictures and can recognise animals while browsing through the books that means a lot of Independent book browsing which we call reading. N is not patient enough to read a story book that only happens at the bedtime rest the whole day it is browsing through the pictures of the book and most of the time it is done by him Independently. Only during bedtime he needs either me or his papa to read a book .
Let me take you through our collection of wild animals.

 

Wild Animals -Touch & Feel Book


This is N’s first book on wild animals and it started with touching the texture and now he makes sounds while browsing through the book. He loves to point out details like trees, butterfly,flower apart from the main subject in the page. This helps me cook Story around which in next reading session is pointed out by him proudly.

 

Noises by Neal Layton


This book is a must buy for babies and toddlers. Bright illustrations with one animal per page. The book has no text other than the sound animals make, this makes the book all the more interesting for the babies.

This is little N’s sound book(not battery operated but self 😜) and it starts with a roar because the lion is in the cover pic.This book is often repeated in our car stash of books as well.

 

Roaring Lion by Emily Bolam


This is a story book about a roaring lion who has no friends because he roars and everyone is scared of him . Well Honestly I didn’t like the story as in the end lion stops roaring and starts purring to make friends. But for lil N it’s his roar book and I have let it be a roar book.

 

Jungle Animals – Cup Cake books

This is a very interesting and engaging book as the black and white animals take colour as you pull them out . A nice book to teach colours and animals at the same time and has a very interesting story line as every animals after getting colour starts searching for another animal in the next page.

This is little N’s Magic book .

 

Who am I? monkey by Sawaan publication


This is a series of books we have few farm animals book from the same series. This book has some interesting facts about monkeys and funny illustrations with monkey wearing caps , sunglasses and hence becomes an excellent book for language as well. As we find which monkey is wearing glasses or cap.

 

My first Animal book -By Sterling Publications


I bought this book from Big Bazaar for just Rs 20/- and the reason I bought this was it has real life illustrations. All pictures are real and hence an excellent Montessori book.

Reading the books relevant to our theme not only helps Nirvaan gain more knowledge but also makes the reading fun as he relates the animals with the activity.
