  1. These all look so fun! My son loves silly books, so I’m thinking Don’t Play With Your Food would be a hit.

      Based on the other books I know your little guy has liked, I would say you are totally right! He will love Don’t Play With Your Food and I would also recommend A Perfectly Messed Up Story. Both funny choices!

  2. There are only a couple of books on this list that we haven’t read (yet). I’ve been meaning to pick up Julia’s House for Lost Creatures for awhile now, and I just keep forgetting to.
