Have I written about the the Arthur books by Marc Brown? I checked and I don't think I have, but I always mean to…then I think I stop myself because everyone's heard of these, right? But here's the thing: there is something magical about the Arthur books and 3 year olds (at least in my house.)
All of my girls have been strangely drawn to the Arthur books around age three. I say 'strangely' because these books don't star princesses or dressing up, or silly rhymes-- all things which three year old girls adore. They star a boy-- and he's and aardvark, not a soft cuddly bunny or cute kitten. I'm not trying to gender profile here, I promise I'm not! We like lots of other books starting boys. LOTS! Its just such a surprise to me how much my kids love Arthur!!
