At first when we signed up for the books, I expected them to be kind of like the ones you get in the Chick-fil-a kids meals...don't get me wrong, I LOVE Chick-fil-a! But I have a kid, and I'm a teacher, and I often throw those books away (shh...don't tell anyone). The books from Chick-fil-a usually have too many words on the page, are so flimsy, and just aren't that engaging. (Except when they had Zin, Zin, Violin and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie a few years ago).
The books that Dolly Parton sends on the other hand are pretty good! Not to mention free!! Philip and I get really excited when they arrive in the mail. We always read the book to Landon right when it arrives and then that night at bedtime. I can't wait until he is old enough to look forward to the books coming in the mail too!
|Some of the great books from Dolly! I'm curious to see if they continue to be age appropriate as gets older? Dolly is so smart!|
