Everyone knows that reading to our children is essential for their growth, development, and success. At this point, this blogger does not feel a need to inform anyone of this. However, there are some confessions that need to be shared.
5 Lessons & A Confession
First, while comments about products are always true some products are easier to review than others. Some I don’t want to put down, let go of, or share. Others, I can’t wait to be done with.
Second, in the Zoo we realize life is real. Real means both sides of the coin: good and bad. We do our best to point out all that we believe, be it good, bad, or ugly.
Third, if we find a particular product fantastic, we will go to all lengths to shamelessly promote it.
Fourth, as a My Crafty Zoo reader you may as well get accustomed to seeing this particular product. I loved it. I’ll be going crazy about it for quite some time. There’s a good chance it will end up being the gift I give for all appropriately aged persons, and a few fun loving friends.
Now that all of that is off my chest, my conscious is clear and I shall begin shamelessly expressing my absolute love for this fantabulous little book! Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32 is one of the most adorable stories I’ve read in a very long time. I dare say it puts Dr. Suess to shame. I know, I know. Strong words. Don’t believe me? Read it, you will be a convert.
Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32
Author B.C.R Fegan did an amazing job of telling an interesting story that are paired ever so well with the graphics done by Lenny Wen. I love that the story flows so well, almost musically, and that every page is a page you want to spend a few moments looking at and talking about! Even as an adult, there was a piece of me that wanted to skip to the back to find out what was behind door 32 and then the other part that couldn’t skip a single line or page!
