Sit back and let us re-read your childhood favorites, and some new additions to the world of children's lit, and make fun of them all the while! Enjoy!

Last week we read The Cat in the Hat. That was so much fun that we had to do another Dr. Suess. Allow us to present: Fox in Socks! As easy as last week's was to read, this book is absolute disaster of a tongue twister. WHEEE!!

The Cat in the Hat, by Dr. Suess is on the greatest juggernauts of the children's literature world. It redefined what makes a "Learn to Read" book and has been consistently read by basically everyone everywhere forever. We read it, you've read it. It's a fun book that helped us each figure out basic rhyme scheme. Also reading. BUT that doesn't mean it isn't without it's flaws...

FIRST THINGS FIRST! Rachel made a mistake! Their Eyes Were Watching God is NOT by Toni Morrison. It was written by Zora Neale Hurston. She is sorry and you all deserve to know the TRUTH!

Anyway, we read this book. It was cute. Sure, I'd appreciate it if Louise thought of the outside world as a pleasant thing, but I can't blame her for enjoying reading.

I Want My Hat Back and This Is Not My Hat, both by Jon Klassen, are an amazing pair of books. Completely different characters, both dealing with the harrowing issue of a stolen hat. These books are silly and amazing. We read them BOTH!
