Pretend by Jennifer Plecas is a fun book that describes a creative play scenario between father and son, something I love to see (Why does dad always come out in rhyming stories, dad, bad, dad, sad, dad, mad, etc.).
What I disliked:
I honestly think this book is perfect.
What I liked:
I loved the colorful illustration. I loved the fun, creative scenario turning a living room couch into a boat battling sharks and crabs. I loved that it was positive and reminded me as a parent to partake in the kids’ requests for ridiculous make believe games.
Where to find it:
Again, Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library expanded our story horizons. I get stuck at libraries, going to the same familiar sections, pulling out the same genre of books, etc. Getting a free book out of my normal sent straight to my home to excite my child enough that I simply must read it is a real blessing. If you can still find it on Amazon for less than two bucks, snatch it up! It’s well worth the money!
