This is what I hear over and over anytime I finish reading a book with Kai. "More", he clearly says and reaches for the next one. He loves reading and it is such a joy to sit down and read with him and have him point out things and tell me the things he sees. And although it does make the bedtime process long, I absolutely love that fact that no matter how many books we read he always asks for more. A month ago we used a gift card I had been saving since he was born to buy him a couple brand new books. We choose Where The Wild Things Are and Green Eggs and Ham. I still have some of that card left and thought I would ask some of you book lovers what some of your (or your kids') favorite books know, those classics I am overlooking. Thanks for your help!

I love reading to my girls too. It is always fun, especially when they think you are the funniest & best thing in the world when you make the funny noises. Some GREAT kids books are the Skippyjon Jones books. They are about a kitten who pretends he's a dog. Very cute books. Here is part of the synopsis so to speak:

Move over, Eloise and Olivia. Make room for SkippyjonJones, a Siamese kittenboy who can't resign himself to being an ordinary cat. Having a time-out in his room, he resorts to his imagination. Taking on the superhero persona of the great Spanish sword fighter Skippito, he has the adventure of his life, and readers are invited along. Zany, wild, and over-the-top, this utterly original book truly begs to be read aloud.
