One of our favorite books around here is The Tin Forest by Helen Ward and Wayne Anderson. It is a sweet, hopeful story with beautiful illustrations, about not giving up your dreams. Kaleb used to bring it to me quite often for me to read as his bedtime story, then he practiced learning how to read with it. Now it is one of Elijah's favorites and almost anytime I ask him to go pick something out for me to read, he returns with this book. We give it an A+.
