Another favourite book around here is Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel. It's one my husband and I remember from our childhoods, and my father got it for Kieran. The only difficulty we've had is in convincing Kieran to let us stop after one or two chapters instead of reading the entire book in one sitting. The chapters are fairly short, though, and the stories are well-written. It's a book that we enjoy reading to the kids, with some puns that seem geared more towards the adults, too. I can get annoyed with some children's books if they seem to dumb things down too much, but this book isn't guilty of that. Reading should be an activity that is fun for the whole family, and with this book, it is.
