I thought it would be nice for you to get to know my little family, so I decided I would share with you our favorite book, Comment j’ai sauvé mon papa by Hervé Tullet. We’ve had this book for 2 years now, and it has travelled with us, been slept with, and even stepped on. It’s a lovely little story about how a little boy goes about to help his dad get out of a funk, with many different ways until one day he has a great idea and saves the day! It’s a simple book with little text (although I like to add my own personal text and sound effects) and simple illustrations — just the way we like it and no matter how many times we’ve read it we just never get tired of it, the ending is just too good!
Unfortunately, the book has only been published in French, but lucky me my kids only speak French! However, I only recently discovered that the author Hervé Tullet is quite popular and that a few of his books are available in many different languages (Esther wrote about The Game of Finger Worms a few weeks ago). Now I have got to get my hands on his latest book Press Here — this unique book about the power of the imagination and interactivity looks like fun for the whole family!
