MAJOR news around here is that we are sssllllooowwwlllyyy pulling away from dinosaur books with Z and he is actually requesting new titles. The last few times we went to the library, I told him we've read all the dinosaur books and we should try something new. Hooray. He agreed. We did get more Jane Yolen/Mark Teague "How A Dinosaur..." books, but those can't count since they're illustrated storybooks. But Z LOVES this Grumpy Bird book. I think he can identify with being grumpy (can't we all?) and he loves seeing another character act grouchy.
I hope this book trend is one that continues for a long time.
