i found these today and they look nice. we like really sweet, not-to-fairyish, nature type books around here. that's what my kids respond to best. dd doesn't understand too much about fairies even at 4yo.. her SPD makes her a very literal girl. but we still like sweet natural "natural" books.
little house on the prairie is something i am looking at getting. http://www.amazon.com/Summertime-Woo...ref=pd_sim_b_6
which series are the best?
anyone have any experience with:"i took the moon for a walk"
or"the boy who grew flowers"
my dd is similar. she has a beautiful imagination, but what she pretends and enjoys is reality based. not for lack of exposure either. she just has very little interest in fantasy. we have a few of those little house books and LOVE them! dd likes the stories about laura more then the ones about almanzo, but at (almost!) 4, the stories seem to be just right. not too wordy, but not dumbed down either. just sweet and simple. lovely illustrations as well. we have:
-country fair (about almanzo. not dd's fave.)
-a little house birthday
-dance at grandpa's (this one is our favorite.
-summertime in the big woods
