“We-View” Wednesday – The Butt Book

Welcome back to “We-View” Wednesday!  After months off, I’ve decided to bring back this feature.  My son is in second grade and is a fluent reader now.  We still read together daily and I thought it would benefit him to summarize (sometimes orally, sometimes written) books that we read.   At the same time you all will become familiar with books kids his age may like to read.   I hope you will join us!  Click here to read about the original intent of “We-View” Wednesday.

A few changes:

  • This will become a monthly feature instead of a weekly feature.  I will post “we-views” on the third Wednesday of every month.
  • I’m still learning different aspects to blogging and trying to become familiar with linky features.  I may eventually make this a linky, but for now, if you would like to join this feature, please email me at  dlittle {at} linkstoliteracy {dot} com by the Sunday before the third Wednesday of the month with your “we-view”.  I would love to be able to post multiple book “we-views” of different aged children.  Please make sure to include your blog address so that others can check you out, too!

Here is our latest “we-view”

The Butt Book by Artie Bennett

Last month I wrote a post about letting boys read whatever interests them.  I stand by that, and this book is a perfect example of reaching boys – though girls enjoy it too!  With its great rhymes and descriptive pictures, the reader learns all about butts.  It’s a fun read.   I would recommend this book for kids ages 4-7.  My son read it to me and then gave me this summary:

The Butt Book is very funny!  The book teaches me about butts.  My favorite quote is, “Why do we have butts? Perchance a place to place our underpants?” I like it because the author made me say underpants!

Disclosure: We received a copy of this book from the author.
