Book Number 99 – Me with You by Kristy Dempsey and Christopher Denise

Book Jacket for: Me with you / Kristy Dempsey ; [illustrations by] Christopher Denise.This was really a book for mom rather than Little N.  I read it to him while he was eating.  He gave it some cursory glances, but it brought tears to my eyes.  Baby bear lists all the different ways she is herself, but the self she likes best is when she is with her dad.  The ending really sums it up, “And though I’ll find new ways of being me my whole life though, my favorite me will always be when I am me with you.”

Book Number 95- Faster! Faster! by Leslie Patricelli

Book Jacket for: Faster! Faster!An imaginative story told with very few words.  A young girl on her dad’s back encourages him to go faster – like different animals.  In the end, poor dad runs out of gas, but the girl still thinks he was fast!  It was an enjoyable story, but I think it isn’t great for young ones like Little N.  He liked the pictures, but it would be a good one to look at again.
