More On Mud Season

Mud is not much fun for adults--unless you're into mud wrestling, but for kids, it can be a delightful experience! Here are a few kids' books to enjoy with your little mudpuppy:

Appelt, Kathi. Bubba and Beau Meet the Relatives. [JP APP]. These characters, one dog, one human, have no problem getting dirty!

Dewey, Jennifer Owings. Mud Matters. [J 553.6 DEW]. A look at the many uses for mud!

Haskins, Lori. Stuck in Muck. [E HAS]. For the beginning reader who also likes trucks!

Lewison, Wendy Cheyette. Mud. [E LEW]. If the thought of dirty hands and feet makes you squeamish, skip this little rhyming book!

Pomerantz, Charlotte. The Piggy in the Puddle. [JP POM]. We've had this book for many years. It probably should have been discarded long ago, but I won't let it go (sorry Jane)! I used to love using it in storyhour back in the days when I was a children's librarian. I have fond memories of the little listeners piping in on the refrain,
Mud is oofy, mud is poofy,
Mud is oh so oofy-poofy.
The silliness of the text, accompanied by the illustrations of the late James Marshall, make this title a hit in my book!

Ray, Mary Lyn. Mud. [JP RAY]. The fact that the author is a New Hampshire resident is obvious. This writer really knows her mud!

Stop thinking like a stuffy old adult--some nice warm day take your shoes off and really experience mud season!
