Book Recommendations by Eli

I love to read. Reading books is one of my most favourite activities. I can read by myself if i want, or I can get mom or dad to read to me. Or anyone else for that matter. I have some favourite books, of course (much to my mom’s chagrin). Sometimes she’ll agree to read them over and over, and other times she says “Oh, let’s pick a different one…” and tries to hide it on a higher shelf that I can’t reach. Silly mommy.
Anyways. One of my most favourite books right now is The Very Cranky Bear by Nick Bland. A-m-m-m-azing. The story is rhymy and funny and scary and I love the lion. But the best parts about the book are when the bear ROARS. Roar! Roar! ROARRRR! (He gnashed his teeth and stomped his feet and chased them out the door). I love turning to those two pages the most. I think mom has finally gotten used to it.


I have the large paperback version, and I’ve seen the board book too. I’m sure it is just as good. Daddy shared some of his Christmas itunes money and bought me the interactive app version for the ipad. The guy that reads it is from Australia and pronounces ZEBra just like daddy! You should check it out here.

(Because I love Nick Bland so much, we got the Very Hungry Bear and Very Itchy Bear book apps. We also got the French version of Some Dads! I’m so lucky!)
