March's Author of the Month
March 13, 2019
We are excited to feature Bill Martin Jr. as Bloom's author of the month!
Bill Martin Jr. has written more than 300 children's books. His books are commonly found in homes, libraries, and schools all over the country. His books often sound more like a song than a book. This helps to make them easy for children to memorize.
Martin's book "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See?" has provided giggles to children for years! This book is a great example of being entertaining for children and also being sequential to help them memorize the story.
When kids can memorize a story to read to their parents they feel successful!!!
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is another widely popular book from Bill Martin Jr. This book teaches about the order of the alphabet in an uplifting way.
All of the books from this author are highly engaging for children to look at and read. After reading the story to your child take the time to talk about the pictures or have your child tell you why they like a certain page or character.
Not sure where to find these books? Look for them in one of Lake County Library's selections.
