the magic hat

Mem Fox has been featured on my Favorite Children's Books list before. I'm really becoming quite attached to her quirkiness and creative way of thinking. So we have checked out a few more of her books from the library and, as you would probably guess, quite enjoyed them. This rhyming, rollicking read, titled The Magic Hat, takes us through a town where a magic hat sits on the top of various heads and poof! instantly transforms them into an animal. The cute story keeps you guessing up until the very last page.

Hello Baby! introduces us to a bevy of baby animals including a gecko, a clever monkey, and a dusty lion cub. In the end, the baby in this story discovers the most precious creature of all...itself!!

Mem holds the reader with the exuberant rhyming text and is an irresistible read for my kids! Check them out. :)
