favorite book friday


don't call it a comeback! i'm bringing back one of my favorite series from last year- favorite book friday!

last year i bought the kids the little animal series from thornton burgess. they did not like them one bit. while at a friend's house recently, i noticed that she was reading the adventures of reddy fox to her daughters. i decided then and there that i was going to give it another go, and i'm so glad i did! my kids love this book! in our first sitting, we read 28 pages. out of those 28 pages only there was only one picture. the story is just that good. it reads quickly, has fantastic character development, and each chapter ends in a bit of a cliff hanger.

such wonderful little books!

We loved these books, too! My girls read all we have. Let me know if you need any of the series, i might have one you don't. We'd love to share. Have you read any Arthur Scoot Baily, like The Tale of Jolly Robin, or the Tale of Solomon Owl...pretty good stuff too along the same lines.

Happy cuddly reading!
