The Princess and the Pony by Kate Beaton
One Family by George Shannon
Rupert Can Dance by Jules Feiffer

Rupert Can Dance was a HUGE hit! The parents loved One Family but it was a little slow for some of my kids. We enjoyed counting the different objects together and finding their families’ “number.” Many of my storytime kids come from BIG families and it was fantastic to be able to share a family book that acknowledges large families.
