1. The Monster at the End of this Book -- I don't remember if I had this book, or read it when I was older and babysitting, but this is one of the all time best children's books that I can remember. I don't know what made me think of it a few days ago, but I was so relieved to find it still in print.
2. Dictionary in Spanish: The Cat in the Hat Beginner Book - Perhaps my most favourite childhood book. It *IS* an English to Spanish dictionary for kids, which was cool enough - but there are also stories and in-jokes that run throughout starting with one of the first words in the dictionary 'aligator' - (Aaron the aligator if I recall correctly) who is a starring figure throughout the book. I can't wait to see the book again, and once I do, I will probably have to order one for myself as well as my nephew or niece.
3. And Tango Makes Three - Oh, yes indeed! Thank you closed-minded conservative! a&^-holes! If it were not for you, I'd have never known about this book, and I can't wait to read it myself. I'm not sure my niece's conservative parents are going to appreciate it (I'm really hoping they don't actually object to it) but the 4 year old is going to get it anyway. (No worry on the other side, my nephew's parents will love it, I'm sure.)
