Timeless, educational, thought-provoking books that will get tossed aside for fun toys. Yep, we’re not the fun uncles/aunties. But you can’t lose with Story About Ping, The Five Chinese Brothers or Tikki Tikki Tembo (No sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo). I loved the latter. Tikki was on some Twista rhyming ish!
While checking the sales, we found Linda Sue Park. Her kid books are thoughtful and multicultural! Plus it’s a good read—Mung Mung, her first book for ages 2-7 is an animal sounds primer. Peep her out here.
