International Childrens Book DayInternational Children’s Book Day has been celebrated annually since 1967 as a way not only to inspire a love for books and reading, but also to draw attention to great books for children.  At Kindermusik, we celebrate – and foster! – a love of reading and wonderful books in class and at home with our exclusive Kindermusik Home Materials all throughout the year.

In honor of International Children’s book Day, here is a short list of books we love to read in the Kindermusik classroom… PLUS a few of favorite books found in the Reading Rainbow app:

Big Red Barn by Margaret Wise Brown
The Doorbell Rang by Pat Hutchins
Dancing Feet by Lindsey Craig
Zin! Zin! A Violin by Lloyd Moss
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff
On Mother’s Lap by Ann Herbert Scott
Jamberry by Bruce Degen
From Head to Toe by Eric Carle
Clap Your Hands by Lorinda Bryan Cauley

And as a bonus, we also wanted to highlight a few of our favorite Kindermusik books now available on the Reading Rainbow app for free on iPad or Kindle Fire:

  • A Quieter Instrument
  • Flip-Flap, Sugar Snap!
  • Henry’s Parade
  • I Went to Visit a Farm One Day
  • Jenny Jenkins

We also invite you to learn more about the music-literacy connection by downloading our Music and Reading guide  and by trying a free Kindermusik class.  Most of all, we hope you’ll cuddle with your child and a good book and enjoy celebrating International Children’s Book Day together!
