Proof that "the book really is better than the movie"
The kids are old enough now (4 & 2 - almost 3) that I decided to try out reading to them before bed. They'll sit still to read picture books but I wanted to try a chapter book. We started with "The Littles Go Exploring", a book that I picked up cheap at a consignment sale. They are LOVING it and after the very first night of reading they spent the whole next day playing "the littles" & talking to "the littles" through the vents & the walls in the house. They've seen The Littles cartoons and movie before but they had never taken it the step further to actually play pretend about it afterwards. To me, that is proof that the book is better than the movie because it awakened their imaginations!
We'll be done with this books soon & I want to find another one.
I need your recommendations of good chapter books for this age! Help, please!
