Small Talk Six July 17

I missed an entire MONTH of Small Talk Six.  With Brian traveling, me traveling, two weddings, a family reunion, and a surgical procedure, it is no wonder.  But, man, I missed an entire MONTH!

Okay, back on track….

Small Talk Six at MomDot is a weekly Meme with a different topic.  You can learn more about the Meme and the list of topics for Small Talk Six 2010 by going here.

The rules are:

Grab a Small Talk Six button for your post and sidebar.  Then post on your blog your response to the assigned topic of the week.  Your response can be as brief or elaborate as you wish, but must be in 6, i.e. a list of 6 words, 6 phrases, 6 sentences, 6 paragraphs, or 6 photos, etc…

Today’s topic is “6 children’s books you love to read out loud.”

  1. My Grandma Lived in Gooligulch My Grandma Lived in Gooligulch has been a favorite of mine since it was first published in 1990!
  2. And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street (Classic Seuss) Of course, I loved Dr. Seuss growing up, so my kids have the entire Seuss library.
  3. If Jesus Lived Inside My Heart My kids have a whole set of board books about Jesus from Candy Cane Press that they just love.
  4. Don’t Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late! The Pigeon books, by Mo Willems, are my new favorite series.
  5. Slowly, Slowly, Slowly, said the Sloth Eric Carle’s books are masterpieces of artwork and storytelling.
  6. If You Give a Pig a Pancake I fell in love with Laura Numeroff’s books the first time I read them!

Can you tell I have toddlers?  LOL.  You can click on the book titles to go to Amazon (yes, I used my affiliate links) to learn more about the one’s I’ve listed.

How about you?  What are your favorite books to read aloud?

Be blessed,


Lady V dZine

About Virginia

Hi there! My name is Virginia, and I am the author/owner of That Bald Chick. I am a Christian, wife, mother of three, full time homemaker, homeschooler, and ministry volunteer in addition to being a blogger. In my free time *cough* I enjoy reading, writing, taking walks with my family, and listening to music.


  1. My Grandma Lived in Gooligulch sounds very charming. I’m interested in no. 3 too. Happy weekend.
    .-= Hazel´s last blog ..I shouldnt have told you that! =-.

  2. I’ve loved Dr. Seuss since I was a child too. I love the way the books just flow when you read them. I love Sandra Boynton for my boys for the same reason. Some kid’s books just don’t flow when you read them aloud, and it doesn’t make them as enjoyable.
    .-= Amanda´s last blog ..Small Talk Six – Children’s Books =-.

  3. I love If you give a pig a pancake! Great choice!
    .-= Bethany Larrabee´s last blog ..Small Talk Six – Children’s Books =-.

  4. We’ve always enjoyed reading Dr Suess. I love all the rhyming… the kids do to 🙂
    .-= Bobbie (OneScrappyMom)´s last blog ..Maximize Your Battery =-.

  5. OOOOh we love “If you give a pig a pancake” too..such a great book!

  6. I hadn’t heard of Sandra Boynton before. Will certainly be checking her books out. Thanks!
