Here are two of our favourite books right now:
is a book I started reading to the kids in the fall. It's huge but half filled with amazing pencil drawings which help tell the story. Both kids love it.
Our fantastic little local library purchased a copy of the Jenny and the Cat Club series after attempting an interlibrary loan. The book they purchased includes 5 of the Jenny and The Cat Club stories. I believe that they can also be purchased separately. The stories are quite long with a few pictures. This is currently what Mason is reading. As a compromise I read a page and then he reads a page. They're very cute and innocent.
