1. Chugga Chugga Choo Choo

We’ve been enjoying this book with the Kennedy Kaboodle for years – we heard this for the first time at a train themed birthday party. The kids loved it so much we had to go out and get our own copy.

2. Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel

This classic story of Mike and his steam shovel Mary Anne has been delighting children since the 1930’s. My children love the illustrations,

3. A Picture Book of Amelia Earhart

As a child, I was fascinated by the story of Amelia Earhart. I loved sharing the story of this aviation pioneer with my daughter.


4. Bicycle Race

My littles all love to ride bicycles, even Maeve.

The kids love listening to me read this story of a bicycle road race. An added bonus? We can work on number review while reading this one!


5. Trains

Gail Gibbons’ books are always marvelous resources for our homeschool. Her nonfiction books are such fun to explore!


6. Wheels on the Bus

Around here, even the smallest Kennedys get into the reading fun. When we read this book, Maeve even tries to get Daniel to do the hand motion for the song. (he’s still a little small!)


7. Beep Beep Vroom Vroom

Want to work on patterns with your children? We love this book about Molly and her big brother Kevin – my children love to be the first to spot the difference in the patterns of Kevin’s cars.
