I’m read this to the boys before naptime, there are no pictures and the language is pretty complex for the boys but they pick-up on the key words about the bugs and beetles.
I read this to my daughter when I nurse her to sleep, I have other similar books from Beatrix Potter but this one I have memorized so I don’t really have to worry about holding the book.
The boys flip through this one all day long. Then they pick up whatever object looks most like a rocket ship and they say Blast Off about a million times and land on planets and pick up rock samples and take readings of the gases and dust on each planet. Imagination is a wonderful thing.
I picked this one up at a campground, pick-up a book leave a book kind of thing, thought the boys would enjoy it for a day or two. My oldest LOVES it. He often asks in his sweetest voice “Momma, can you tell me the trains and things?” how can I resist? We have had the book now 6months. I now have an extensive knowledge of the Classic American Train.
