Lately Malachi has been obsessed with books. He will sit with me and read for hours and then throw a fit when i say books are all done. To encourage his to look at them on his own (I cant read to him all day!) we've gotten a few to keep with all his toys. These 3 books have become his FAVORITE! They have huge, simple and colorful pictures and at the end they play a sound and have some lights. The pages are cardboard which allows Malachi to turn the pages himself! I HIGHLY recommend these books and have found them used on Amazon for under $5 each.
