Great art work in a book can make a huge difference.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I guess I just love it because the kids do! So colorful and it teaches them some counting as we read.
In my opinion kids are the best judge of a good book.
Wonderful video. This sounds like such a great story.
1. The Hungry Caterpillar has been a favorite of mine for ages. I have bought so many for friends, family etc.
I love the lessons that this book has.
3. If there was one english word that I could remove from the language, it would be the word "like" when it is not a part of a sentance, but just used because either I need another word or too lazy to use the proper words. Ugghh pet peeve.

I really like your answer to #3. ;-)
I love the book, " No Such Things". It's such a fun book with great illustrations and was a favorite of my children.
Kids know a great story book when they hear and see it.
My first piano recital was a learning moment. I was 12 yrs old and very shy and fearful of playing in public. We were told to memorize our piece we were playing. I did not take my music with me and when I was called up to play I totally forgot my opening notes. So embarrassing. My teacher sat down with me at the piano and eventually the music came to me and I played it from start to finish. Many told me afterwards how brave I was. That if it had been them they would have went back to their seat. I didn’t know that was an option! But I’m glad I finished.
I can relate to that experience in terms of public speaking. Fear can paralyze us, but harnessed fear can drive us to do great things.
"Like" would be a word I'd like to remove from a lot of people's vocabulary. "It was like we like went on our trip to the mountains like yesterday." It drives me nuts - and I find myself doing it at times too!
I like totally agree!
