We read to my three year old twin girls every day. While there are many books that they love to read, their two favorites – one for each – are quite unique.
Lester’s Dreadful Sweaters by K.G. Campbell
The first exposure we had to this book was at a library storytime. I knew I had to buy our own copy after it made me laugh out loud more than once while the librarian read it. This book is about a boy and the mysterious sweater knitting aunt who comes to live with his family. It is quirky, funny, and thoughtful. My girls adore Lester’s Dreadful Sweaters largely because of how much fun I have reading it with them. The book is great for everyone, including adults! The story is interesting and unlike any other I’ve read before. Not to mention, I like that it uses good descriptive words like “uncommonly,” “suspicious,” and “irksome.”
