Elijah Weighs In

Elijah here.  It has come to my attention that my mom likes to talk about some of her favorite children's books on this blog.  That's all well and good, but she is a grown-up, and these books are for kids. Would you trust my review of The Hunger Games?  I didn't think so.  So I am going to tell you about my three current favorite books.  Mommy knows they are my favorites because I ask her to read them to me about 10 times a day.  

1. Moo, Baa, La La La! by Sandra Boynton.  First of all, you know this book is going to be good because it has farm animals on the cover.  Then, it surprises you by getting even better at the end because there are dogs in it too!  My mom is a little concerned because when she asks me what a pig says, I say, "La, la, la".  Well, I learned it from this book, so it must be true.

2. The Eye Book by Dr. Seuss.  I like this book because it is about my favorite body part, eyes.  I like eyes so much that I often help people out by showing them where their eyes are.  On a side note, it might be safest to wear sunglasses when I am around. 

3.  Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss.  Or, as I like to call it, "Gockigock".  If eyes are my favorite body part, then socks are definitely my favorite article of clothing.  I like the way the words sound in this book, even when mommy and daddy mix them up.  I usually get too excited about the first few pages to make it to the end, so I don't know what happens.  That's okay, though.  The first half is excellent.  My daddy tried to hide this book and switch it with another one so he wouldn't have to read it any more, but I was not fooled and kept asking for it in a loud voice until he "found" it.  

So that's it right now.  I have some others that I like, such as Goodnight Moon and One Duck Stuck, but I'm okay with only reading those once or twice a day, so they didn't make the list.  I will be back to update you when the list changes, which my daddy hopes will be pretty soon.


  1. I was caught in the Leap Year Vortex, thank you for pulling me out, E-man. See you soon. Love, MAMO

  2. Oh Elijah, I had to go look up Fox in Socks on google books and read it (out loud, to myself). It is one of my favorites, too :) That and "Huevos Verdes Con Jamon" - you should try that one when you learn Spanish.
