My (slightly younger) children’s book suggestion:
Margaret Wang’s Who Stole the Cookie From the Cookie Jar. Our kids have loved this book- practically since birth. Could it be because if the holes in the pages? the family pets that are constantly being accused? or the simple fact that in the end: Daddy is the culprit….just as in their own home. Our copy is WELL loved and we look forward to sharing it with Miles soon.
…and since children have interrupted my previous reading habit (sad, I know), here is a bonus children’s suggestion…
My (slightly older) children’s book suggestion:
Beverly Cleary’s The Mouse and The Motorcycle. Our kids have enjoyed hearing the adventures Ralph and his motorcycle before bed many nights of the week. I think it’s a good workout for Mom and Dad’s lungs too. Here’s a little snippet from Ralph himself:
Boy!” said Ralph to himself, his whiskers quivering with excitement. “Boy, oh boy!” Feeling that this was an important moment in his life, he took hold of the handgrips. They felt good and solid beneath his paws. Yes, this motorcycle was a good machine all right.
