I know some people are done with their Christmas shopping. A few of us, however, are still working on it. Here's a really fun story for the youngest readers on your list.
"One lucky day," a family goes on an outing. At the sweet shop (Mathew Price is a British publisher, who recently relocated to Denton, Texas), the family sees a little green frog. They don't want him to get stepped on, so Daddy puts the frog in a jar. At the park, they see a lost kitten, and Daddy puts him in a shopping basket. At the pet shop, the family discovers a lonely canary, and Daddy puts him in a cage. When the family finds an elephant, Daddy finally puts his foot down…
This is a fun cumulative tale with a repeating refrain. Perhaps the most fun, however, is the fact that ROOM FOR ONE MORE is a lift-the-flap book. Each time the family adds a new animal, there's a new flap. By the end of the book, the child gets to open five separate flaps.
I know this is a book my youngest reading friends will absolutely love and will want to hear/read again and again.
