I love board books. Reason number one being that they're short, lol. I don't always have time to read to my kids, but I want to and when they ask, I hate to tell them no. So, I pick up a board book and both our needs get met.
This book is by Sandra Boynton and is called "Happy Birthday, Little Pookie." It is about a little pig who wakes his parents up extremely early because he's excited that it is his birthday. Mom and dad are exhausted, but try to make it the best day ever. It rhymes, too, which makes it easier to keep the kids' attention. After I finished reading it, they both asked me to read it again. And of course, I can totally relate to being awakened early because of an excited child.
