A few months ago a friend of mine told me Target had some great classic books with all gorgeous new covers. And in the dollar bins no less! We headed straight for the nearest Target to get some and we have loved them ever since. I especially love the clever and colorful covers. We have been reading a chapter or so out of one of the books each night for the last little while. Elliott loves them! Preston's great talent for doing voices while he reads certainly has something to do with that. Elliott has especially been loving Pinocchio. Which, for anyone who doesn't know, is quite a bit darker than the Disney version. We love it! Elliott has even requested we print out pages from the book for him to color. As he colors, he tries to do the voices and tell the story. It's so sweet. If you can, get to your nearest Target and buy these. They are a treat for the whole family and are sure to stick around for years to come.
What is there not to like about this book? The illustrations are perfectly done and the story is hilarious and crazy - so again, perfect. This is our first Oliver Jeffers book and we can't wait to get more! Stuck is a quirky little book about a boy who get's his kite stuck in a tree and decides to throw random items up into the tree to knock the kite down. As you can imagine, more and more things get stuck in the tree and the items he throws in the tree get more and more ridiculous. It's a sure hit for both kiddos and parents. We love it!
I have loved The Little Prince for years and have anticipated the day when I could share it with Elliott. It's kind of one of those kids books that's really an adult book...if that makes any sense. This pop-up version of the classic is perfect for us! Even though I have 3 copies of this book already (Two in English and one in Spanish) I think we'll have to add this one to our collection.
