Landon just loves to read books and I'd love to pick up a few new ones for him as Christmas gifts.

Aliens in Underpants (I think that's what its called, we got it at the book fair at school and both kids LOVE it).

We do a lot of Dr. Suess books

What about the Light in the Attic? I havent' started that one with the kids, but I think I might pull it out pretty soon.

Fun ideas! I actually bought the Light in the Attic book for husband for Christmas a few years ago. He had such fond memories of reading it as a child and wanted a copy for himself. I'll have to pull it out!

I've never heard of Aliens in Underpants. I can totally see that being a hit! Thanks!

Huh, apparently they have a whole series of them. I was slightly off, its Aliens Love Underpants. Here is the amazon link:

Rebekah loves the Brown Bear and Polar Bear books (You know, brown bear, brown bear, what do you see?) She likes them, because they've a pattern she recognizes, so she knows what's coming.

She's a voracious "reader", and recognizes all her letters/numbers, so we've been working on helping her follow the words. We're a long way away from reading, but she loves it!

Thanks for the link, Tracy! It looks like the book has great reviews. I'm putting this on our list!

Patterns are great and I don't think we have a copy of the Brown Bear or Polar Bear books right now. Thanks for the suggestions!
