My Thoughts:

I remember one of the first books I received as a child was by Sandra Boynton, titled, The Going to Bed Book.  I would have my mom read this book to me every night before bed.  And, when I welcomed Savannah last year, she surprised me with a copy of this book, to share with my daughter.  Since then, I have been picking up Sandra Boynton books whenever I see them, and have a nice little collection going for my daughters.  One of my favorite additions to our Sandra Boynton book collection is this boxed set, which includes some of Sandra's most popular titles.  I only wished this set included her birthday title, as it would make for the perfect gift to give to young children on their special day.  But, besides this, I am loving the titles and set as a whole.  Who can resist Pookie the pig?  Savannah loves Pookie, just like I did growing up.  And, with these sturdy board books, I don't have to worry about her handling the books and ripping pages.  Instead, she loves to grab a book or two from the set and sit on the couch with me.  She turns the pages, while I read the stories to her and describe the illustrations.  Each story is easy to read, and makes for a quick read for those toddlers who don't like to sit still for a longer story.  And, when your child begins to read, this would be a great early reader book set to share with them.

So, if you are looking for the perfect Easter gift, or book set to surprise your little one with, why not head to your local bookstore or pick this boxed set up online, and then, sit back and enjoy those special moments reading to your little one, all while sharing Pookie's adventures with them.

Disclosure:  I was sent a copy of this book set by the publisher in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.
