I had the pleasure of reading two books to my girls (Bear in Sunshine and Listen,Listen). We read a lot in our house and our girls definitely have their favorites for sure. I can say that after reading Listen, Listen it will be on the “most read” list in our home for months to come. They loved all the sounds (and probably how silly I sounded making them). They asked to read it over and over again! The pictures are artistic, but still easy to comprehend for my 19 month old babes. Bear in Sunshine was also well received. It’s a smaller book so they can handle it easier on thier own. The pictures are bright and vibrant as well. Check these and other books out at the Barefoot Books Summer Sale at www.barefootupstate.com
