Sometimes things are so predictable. Like a book with a digger on the front is easily a favorite book for a 3 and a half year old boy.
And a book with a dinosaur AND a digger? Golden.
But this book? It’s about a mouse who is a dentist. ( And a patient who may or may not want to eat him!) The guys love it. I’ve had to read it a zillion times. ( I just noticed that amazon had it as a book on cd-I’m going to have to see if we can get a copy!)
And this one I thought would be way over their heads.
It’s about a girl who’s house burns down and she is saving coins to buy her mom a new chair. Again, we’ve read it over and over.
And this is the book that confuses me the most.
It’s about a little mouse who pretty much lazes around the whole summer while his family works to save food and then entertains them with his poetic prowess. They LOVE Frederick. I have to admit he is pretty cute.
Does anyone else have surprising books that their kids love? I’d love to add more to our repertoire:)
