yesterday miss e’s most favoritest book arrived in the mail–no, david! by david shannon. that book get a lot of mileage every time we check the book out from the library. and i can tell other families get a lot of mileage out of it too because the next time we checked out no, david! it had a patched up page, and that was only a month after we had returned it. miss e would call many other boys in other books “david.” and she’ll often request the book even though we’ve already returned it back to the library. so i realized this book’s a keeper. it was actually one of my favorite children’s books in college. and i had my own copy, but then i loaned it, and it never got returned because it’s just that good of a book. well, we have our own copy again.
list of miss e’s (1 year old) frequently requested books:
binky, leslie patricelli
brown bear, brown bear what do you see? bill martin & eric carle
david, david shannon
