Because I am passionate about reading and fostering a love of books in children from an early age, I thought it would be fun to post a bi-monthly children's book recommendation.
Thus, to begin, here's my first rec: Do You Have a Hat? by Eileen Spinelli. Using rhyme, Spinelli introduces young readers to various historical figures, ranging from Franciso de Goya to Carmen Miranda to Charlie Chaplin. Each real-life character wore a hat and the author creatively describes how it set him/her apart. The illustrations are beautiful and captivating; this book should be added to your child's library today.
