Karen reports that Big Ben has two favorite children's books. "Ben loves The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, and a gift from the C's, That's Not My Dinosaur by Fiona Watt."
About The Very Hungry Caterpillar from the author's website:
This all-time favorite not only follows the very hungry caterpillar as it grows from egg to cocoon to beautiful butterfly, but also teaches the days of the week, counting, good nutrition and more. Striking pictures and cleverly die-cut pages offer interactive fun.
Karen also reports she has started Plainsong by Kent Haruf (see February 9th) and The Summer Guest by Justin Cronin (see February 10th).
