Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?
Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Dr. Seuss has been a family favorite for a long time. It was probably the first book that Isla ever really latched onto, bringing it to us to read again and again before she could even talk. As one-year-olds, both my children loved this book and continued to love it past their second birthday. It is a simple book, with great rhymes and a captivating rhythm, that is just long enough to hold a little one's interest. The noises Mr. Brown makes are fun and great practice for children who are still learning how to talk. There is something magical about Mr. Brown. The illustrations don't excite me at all, but the text is so great that even after three years of regularly reading it, I still have fun sharing this book with my kids.
