"Behold! An EAR RESTING PLACE - one of my all-time favorites. TRY IT! Put your tired old ear right on it. Now rest the other one. It works for both of them."
Bookworm's interest at 21 months: He wasn't very interested, but I think I'll try again tomorrow. I have a feeling I can get him hooked if I can explain the concept of resting your body part on the page.
Parent's Peeve: I couldn't imagine what the book was about when I saw the title. A "resting place" to me involves a cemetary. But luckily children won't have that preconception anyway.
"You know, if you were my good friend, I would try to hide, and even if you saw me you could pretend that you did not see me. If you were my good friend you could. I will hide one more time."
Bookworm's interest at 21 months: I couldn't get him to sit through this one either (we're 0 for 3 on the Jon Stone Grover books, but I still love them!). Hopefully he'll enjoy them when he's older.
Parent's Peeve: I love these books. Elmo has NOTHING on Grover.
