I believe that we have checked out most of the board books in our local library. (Except for the Disney movie spin-offs which I will not check out). So, the other day we actually picked out some non-board books. No ripped pages yet. My little boy is growing up!
Fish Eyes: A Book You Can Count On by Lois Ehlert. (Great author!) The highlight of this book is that the fish eyes have little holes in them. And anything related to numbers is always a big hit.
Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney. I am not sure who liked this book more: David, or the 9 year-old we had on respite these past couple of days. Between the two of them, I’m not even sure how many times I read the book. This book teaches waiting on Mommy, and includes fun rhyming phrases. I see why the Llama Llama books are so popular. (For parents and children!)
Corduroy by Don Freeman. This is a classic. I own this book, but I included it here because David loves it. He seems to really like the idea of Corduroy looking for his button and falling off the bed. (By the way, as I was searching for this online, I found other Corduroy books besides Corduroy and A Pocket for Corduroy. I never knew Freeman wrote more!)
