Kids books for two weeks! If you don't like these posts, you are excused now. But if you are interested in recommendations for your little and not so little ones, stay with me here!
Ask your youngsters if they know what a baker's dozen is. More than likely they won't know it's 13. When I was a kid and we bought our cookies individually or corn from the back of a pickup truck, the 13th was part of the deal. This is the story of the person who truly introduced the concept of "a dozen means twelve, and then one more."
We wore this book out at school. Had to buy a new copy. And I bought one for myself, too. It's that repetitive rhyme that follows the form of "I know an Old Lady that Swallowed a Fly." The kids love it.
