    • Cute counting book

      I love this book! It's short enough that my 5 month old can hold his attention, and I like the counting aspect to it. Very durable too.

    • This is a classic book that will be reached for over and over. A sweet simple story that reenforces early learning skills. A nice gift for the 4 and under set.

    • The Very Hungry Caterpillar

      I love this book! Author Eric Carle is wonderful. Fun and interactive book. Kids love it too! Note that the book is heavy cardboard to last for a long time and it is quite small. Not the large book you may have seen at the childrens library!
