This week's book is Blue Hat, Green Hat by Sandra Boynton. She has many many stories with cute pictures and wonderful rhymes and they are funny! Funny silly stories with surprises that makes even the parents giggle.
Following is part of the rush write my mother-in-law wrote about Lucas, who at the time was 3.
"Lucas", Mimi said, "Tell me a story."Her books truly are wonderful and so fun to read. Sandra has so many great stories, even songs to go with the stories. Eric and I even swung dance to Pajama Time for a ward talent show! Just for kicks here are four of my other favorites:
To her surprise, Lucas began immediately.
"Blue Hat, Green Hat, Red Hat, Opps!" He laughed and described a bird standing in a hat.
"That's why it said Oops, Grandma!"
"Red Shirt, Blue, Shirt Yellow, Shirt, Opps!"
"There is a turkey wearing his shirt up-side-down!" Lucas told Mimi.
Mimi thought he was such a clever boy. How in the world could he make up such a cute story right off the top of his head? [Lucas continued saying the rest of the story at this point] ..... Suddenly it dawned on Mimi that Lucas was quoting a book.
