My Favorite Children's Book
This is my favorite children's book for a couple of reasons. It has fun, colorful illustrations, and is written in predictable text. I also enjoy the humor of Robert Munch. I have read most of his books and love all that I have read so far. In this story, Bridget wants some markers because all of her friends have them. Unfortunately, Bridget's mother has heard about those markers and says no. After a little convincing, she buys Bridget 500 markers. The antics that Bridget gets into because of her new and ever improving supply of markers is very entertaining. I think preschool age children can relate to the rules of not coloring on the wall or themselves and that makes the story relevant to them.
