The Incredible Book Eating Boy

Last week we checked out 12 books at the library, and had read them all by the end of the same day, we got them. Most of the books were cute after the first read, but not worth rereading a second time. This book had us all laughing. As soon as Joe came home from work, Bethany and Joseph asked him to read it to them. Then my mom came over and we forced her to read it too. It was read 4 times the first day alone, and we keep reading it.
You have to check out Oliver Jeffers book "The Incredible Book Eating Boy" look for it at the library or go to your local bookstore to read it to your kids.Joseph loves this picture where Henery looks like he has a baby in his belly, except it's books. The illustrations are perfect for his, and Bethany's, 3 and
4{sniff} 5 year old sense of humor.
Eating books starts making Henry sick, so he begins reading them.Our favorite part of the entire book is the last pages and the back cover. Henry had a little snack!It's official, today is the first day of fall! To celebrate we are having potato soup for supper.

I love the illustrations.

At first I thought I was going to read a post about Joseph eating books.

Too funny.

Enjoy your soup!
