KidzKorner: The Sixties

I just finished reading Stephen King's novel, 11/22/63.  It made me nostalgic for that decade so I decided to find some children's books written then.  I'll do the little kids this week and the older kids next Thursday.  Hope you enjoy them!

Peter's Chair by Ezra Jack Keats


Keats' simple style tells us about a little boy with a new baby in the house and how he feels when his parents paint his furniture pink!

May I Bring a Friend? by Beatrice Schenk de Regniers


This is a royal parlor full of laughs as a little boy brings his friends to visit the king and queen.

The Knight and the Dragon by Tomie Di Paolo


An unusual pairing for a fight in this book!  The knight is shy and has to study dragon fighting in the library and the shy dragon has to comb through his ancestor's thing to find out what to do with a knight!

The Story about Ping by Marjorie Flack


Ping is a naughty little duck who stays too long away from his master's boat and he doesn't want to be the last one who gets a little whack with a stick so he stays away and has quite an adventure.

That's a blast from my past for your little ones.  Enjoy and until next week, keep on reading!
