Read full description of the books:
I just read this book with my oldest boy, age 5.
I'd read it long ago, and enjoyed it well enough. But today was an entirely different experience, because today we read this book together.
I actually found him sitting in the stairwell flipping through the book on his own. He does this sometimes, when Sarah and I are busy. I love that he loves books. And I love that he looks through them even when he can't make out all the words by himself.
So what makes this a good kid's book?
1. It's a long book.
I read a lot of kid's books these days. And I find it kinda disheartening when I pick up one that's only 16 pages long.
Don't get me wrong. That might be perfect for holding the attention span of a 1 year old, but if you want your kids to be able to concentrate for longer than the span of a superbowl commercial, you might want to consider reading them longer books.
What's more, it's simply not very much bang for your buck.
Also, what would you rather do? Read a 16 page book to a kid 10 times. Or read a 50 page book twice. (Hint, you want the second option.)
2. There is a lot of good word and letter repetition. For kids that are learning to read, this is key. Once they learn to read the word "They" they'll get plenty of chance to practice it.
There's a bunch of similar words with the silent "e." (Make. Came. Take.) And words with the "ea" letter combination. (Fear. Near.) And some tricky but very common words that are almost impossible to sound out. (Would Should Could.)
3. Most importantly. The book is fun. It's got animals and misunderstandings. Surprises. Good illustrations. The action is easy to follow.
So yeah. There's a lot of good reasons that this one's a classic. It's well worth your time and money if you're in the market for a kid's book.
