Happy Birthday Buglette (and a Reading List)

Today is Buglette's birthday! I'll be visiting some great blogs next week for a virtual book tour. In the meantime, don't forget to leave a comment on last week's post for my book giveaway.

In honor of my little bug and her escapades, following are some of my favorite books with themes that are similar to Buglette. I hope you might enjoy some of these titles (along with Buglette, of course) for a hefty dose of not-so-quiet sleeping and unusual but uber-lovable little characters:

Not-so-quiet sleep books:
Bear Snores On, Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman
Goodnight Gorilla, Peggy Rathmann
The Napping House, Audrey and Don Wood
Little Hoot, Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Jen Corace
Roar of a Snore, Marsha Diane Arnold and Pierre Pratt
How do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight, Jane Yolen and Mark Teague
Don't Let the Pigeon Stay Up Late, Mo Willems

Books with little heroes and heroines:
Song of Middle C, Alison McGhee
Jeremy Draws a Monster by Peter McCarty
Olivia, Ian Falconer
A Carousel Tale, Elisa Kleven
April and Esme, Tooth Fairies, Bob Graham
The Curious Garden, Peter Brown
Clever Jack Takes the Cake, Candace Fleming


Happy reading!
