This book is a well-known classic that follows the little island throughout the seasons, sharing the visit of a little kitten and the "secret" that it learns.

One Morning in Maine by Robert McCloskey
My children thoroughly enjoy this book about Sal, her loose tooth, clamming, ice cream, and CLAM CHOWDER!

Over in the Ocean: In a Coral Reef by Marianne Berkes
As the title suggests, this book is a take on "Over in the Meadow".

The Seven Silly Eaters by Mary Ann Hoberman, illustrated by Marla Frazee*
You know you've found a good children's book when you find your husband lying in bed reading it with a smile on his face (and there are no children to be seen). The Seven Silly Eaters tells the story of a growing family of silly eaters. Each Peters' child likes a specific food and Mrs. Peters goes out of her way to satisfy her dear children's appetites. Eventually, she feels totally unappreciated and believes that nobody has even remembered her birthday. Her birthday morning proves otherwise. My family enjoys the lyrical and sometimes humorous text of The Seven Silly Eaters. We are also amused by the pictures that capture life in a growing family so well.
