Leigh Zeitz These are great books for kids.


message 2: by Sarah (new)

Sarah Certainly books from Dr.Seuss, Sandra Boynton and Robert Munch were enjoyable for my child. It was the rhyming. He would learn to anticipate the end of the verses and say the last word with the flourish of a proud smile to his mother. But we definitely loved the small and large Boynton books as they were travel friendly and virtually indestructible. The silly expressions and cartoons were of interest to him as well. He also loved making the sounds of the animals or dance like the way the animals did in the books.
