What Wee Read
Thinking about What Wee Read was so much fun last week that we wanted to share a few more wonderful books that our kids never seem to get tired of—and maybe more importantly, we never get tired of reading to them.
Press Here by Herve Tullet
In this clever take on interactivity, kids are instructed to press the dots, shake the pages and tilt the book to make stuff happen throughout. No digital tricks here—it's all done on a flat printed page, with a little imagination. (Our kids were admittedly a bit confused when pressing didn't work like an iPad.) Old school, we like it.
Not a Box by Antoinette Portis
A book written for "children everywhere sitting in cardboard boxes." A bunny demands that his cardboard box is NOT a box. It's a racecar. Or a robot. Or a spaceship, of course. Not a Box is simply and beautifully about play and imagination and everything that's great about being a kid. Three cheers.
I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen
We love a story that makes us giggle. This one does it with simplicity, subtlety and irreverence. Younger kids may not quite get it. But you will. And sometimes that's enough.
