I think this first one, I Know a Rhino, was given to us as a gift when Emma was a baby, although I can't fully remember. I just know I loved it immediately. It's so whimsical and imaginative, and I'm a sucker for cute illustrations. We've read this book a thousand times to our kids and they all eat it up. Emma was convinced when she was little that the little girl in the story was actually her.
This book has been well loved by our teething babies.
I loved it so much that I sought out other books by this author, Charles Fuge, and found My Dad. (Oh whoops! My hair snuck into this picture and I didn't notice until now... sorry 'bout that.)
I was not disappointed! The kids love this one too, especially the big build up to the end.
I found a couple more books illustrated by Charles Fuge, although not written by him - I Love It When You Smile and Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball. But I couldn't resist. The illustrations are adorable as always, but the stories are just as cute! And Fuge does something really fun, maybe as his trademark, that makes for a special treat in the books he illustrates. But you'll have to read one of his books to find out for yourself!
