Earlier today I wrote about the Louisville Free Public Library's initiative to encourage parents to read 1,000 books to their child before kindergarten. Here are five Louisville related books to read:
This book is seriously about an alligator that goes to the Kentucky Derby. If you don't think that's rad, you are wrong.
B should be for BOURBON, but yeah, okay, it's a kid's book.
A tribute written by Ali's oldest daughter, this book has gorgeous pictures and isn't too heavy for younger readers.
Did you know that Happy Birthday was written by two Kentucky Sisters? It totally was. Happy Birthday to us.
For more advanced readers (although you'd be surprised what kids can understand if you read out loud), this tells the story of a horse that goes to the Derby.
