Dad's recent favorite kids books

Currently, my two favorite kids books are Ook the Book and Dream Boat. They both rhyme, which Claire is appreciating more and more. Ook has a great repetitive rhythm reminiscent of Dr. Suess, and contemporary illustrations (almost dissonant), while Dream Boat is in traditional verse with mellow illustrations.

Ook the Book: And Other Silly Rhymes

Dream Boat (Fisher-Price Little People Series) (out of print)

I looked up Ook the Book on Amazon and got to see the first page. I can see why Claire loves it! It has great rhythm and very fun illustrations. I may need that for our library. We got a neat book up at the Rink, The Random House Book of Poetry for Children, a treasury of 572 poems for todays child, selected by Jack Prelutsky and illustrated by Arnold Lobel, 1983. What a fun book. Claire & Em will love it for years and years. You all inspire us! Lots of Love, Nanna

Yes, Arnold Lobel is a favorite (author/illustrator of the Frog And Toad series.)
