Except If by Jim Averbeck
Every parent needs a fun book on their shelves that encourages imagination and Jim Averbeck's latest could definitely be that book. Taking a simple egg and helping us to imagine all kinds of different possibilities that could come from that egg is a simple concept, but one that really works in this book.
It's a quick read, great for reading aloud to the 3-6 set, with simple, yet bold and effective illustrations. You could get really silly with it (always fun) and use it to bridge into a craft about "what's in the egg."
Hide and Squeak by Heather Vogel Frederick and illustrator C.F. Payne
A father mouse and his little mouse play a silly game of hide and "squeak" before the little one must go to bed. The father plays along as his son mischievously leads him through a maze of hiding places, trying to draw out bedtime as long as possible! I'm sure your kids can relate to that :)
The rhyming text flows nicely and lends a sweetness to the soft illustrations. An adorable story, perfect for reading aloud before bedtime!
