Because I’m a Bookworm…Little Kid Edition

I love reading.

Whether it’s fiction stories about faraway lands, biographies of spunky women, or non-fiction accounts of good cooking, I’m a reader. I’m even a connoisseur of little kid books.

And my favorite little kid book is a Caldecott Honor Book by Mr. Mo Willems. Maybe you’ve heard of it? “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!”

This amazing book is the simple story of a pigeon who really, really, really wants to drive a bus. Alas, the busdriver won’t let him and expects you (dear reader) to help in his mission against letting the pigeon drive the bus.

It’s funny, it’s quirky, it’s irreverent and it never ceases to make me smile. If you haven’t read this book, go plunk yourself down in the children’s section of your nearest local bookstore and check out the pigeon’s adventures. (Or some of his pals.)

Besides the basic awesomeness of this book, I also really love the author. I mean, just check out his dining room.

And if you live in my neck of the woods (the ole’ 01915), then familiarize yourself with all these great kids books at  Cornerstone Books on Wednesdays and Saturdays with their Celebrity Story Hour, which invites local “celebrities” (they use the term loosely) to read to a group of adoring children. I’ve already been a guest “celebrity,”  but this is a great weekly event for you and your kids to check out in the future!

PS: Did you know the Pigeon tweets?! The hilarity will never end.
