Our review today comes from a young reader named Walker who lives in Raleigh, North Carolina. Walker is an expert on books for the preschool set, and was kind enough to tell us about his current favorites!
Hello, Walker! Thank you so much for talking with us today about your favorite books. Tell us about yourself!Hi, my name is Walker. I am 5 years old and I go to preschool. I like to play with my friends. I like to play games on the computer and Skype with my Grandma and Paw Paw.
Wow, you sure stay busy! You are starting kindergarten this fall. What are you looking forward to the most about going to “big kid” school?Looking around and playing with new friends!
Your mom has told me many times that you love to read. What is your very favorite book these days?Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. It’s about when they try to give Sam some green eggs and ham. At first he doesn’t like them. But when he tries them he likes them. I like this book because Sam always goes inside things and tries the green eggs and ham.
Dr. Seuss was one of MY favorite authors growing up, too! What other books do you like to read?
I also like The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories by Dr. Seuss. I like the story in that book about the shirt spot. That sticky spot sticks to everything, even the cat and even back on his shirt again!
I also like a book called Underpants Thunderpants but I know that’s not a Dr. Seuss story. I like that one because it’s silly. I like books that rhyme!
Me, too—rhyming books are my very favorite!
