Allen's "Book Club" Installment Two

We have moved on, at least temporarily, from Walter the Farting Dog. Right now, we are enthusiastically reading Stellaluna (again, thanks to Aunt Kissen).

While it's definitely an "older" children's book (ages 4 and up), Allen absolutely loves it. He is riveted by the illustrations (I can't blame him). He loves it so much, he wanted me to read it to him twice tonight. This is the second time he's been smitten with this book. I was very surprised to see that he was intrigued by it (and sat still through the entire reading of it) several months ago as well. A definite must read!
We went to Target yesterday, and stopped in the Leap Frog aisle to check out additional books for Allen's Tag. I was thrilled to pick up Walter the Farting Dog Goes on a Cruise.
Since I just downloaded the audio tonight, Allen has not had the pleasure of "reading" this book, But I did. It is absolutely hilarious. However, if you are not a fan of bathroom humor, I do not recommend it. Because Walter farts ... a lot. And each time you point the Tag reader at him, he farts. Quite amusing though :)
That's all for this edition of Allen's "Book Club." Stay tuned for more reviews and recommendations.

I love that he loves Stellaluna. Don't forget to look at and discuss the small pen and ink drawings at the top of each page. Those pictures show Stellaluna's mother's search for her baby.
