It is so satisfying to have found books that fascinate the kids so much.
I can see why the boys love the illustrations of this first book. Both were glued to the book when I read it for the first time last week.
The moment M woke the next morning, he went straight to the living room with the book and examined it for a good 20 min. When Chip got up shortly after, he also picked up the book voluntarily and browsed quietly for a while. Fantastic sign!!! :>
Story-wise, I prefer this second book, which offers a great twist. After countless reads, we are still enjoying it. Though the kids are very familiar with the story by now, they still laugh every time we get to the same page. Hah!
These books are definitely miles better than boring readers and passages from the 四五快读.
