Classic Children's Books and Some Sweet New Ones, too

My grandnephew Ciauss' third birthday party is this Sunday.  He's a wild one, and I'm a self-appointed gate keeper of Children's Literature.  Oh sure, he has a busy mother and a retired grandma to help, but I'm going to introduce him to some classic children's books and some of my favorites that are written nowadays.

Last year I gave him "You Can't Take the Dinosaur Home," by fellow GAP author Mary Esparza-Vela -- including the three space tot dolls (my review in Archives July 15, 2013), and "How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night," by Jane Yolen --and yes a bunch of stuffed dinosaurs, too.  (My review in Archives: March 12, 2014)
