H is for Home

I think Perry Como sang it best:

“There’s no place like

Homer Price by Robert McCloskey.
Oh! by Kevin Henkes with illustrations by Laura Droznek.
My Car by Byron Barton.
Each Peach Pear Plum by Janet and Allan Ahlberg.

for the holidays.”

McCloskey, Robert. Homer Price. New York: Viking Press, 1943.

If you’re my age or older, you probably remember watching the film back in elementary school.
Henkes, Kevin, and Laura Dronzek. Oh! New York: Greenwillow Books, 1999.

This graceful book evokes the quiet feeling of the first snowfall of the season.

Barton, Byron. My Car. New York: Greenwillow Books, 2001.

Toddlers get a kick out of this very simple story about a guy and his car.

Ahlberg, Janet, and Allan Ahlberg. Each Peach Pear Plum: An “I Spy” Story. New York: Viking Press, 1979.

The original “I Spy” picture book always gets a big laugh in storytime. Just make sure the children are close enough to see the tiny details of the illustrations.
