shared with you about one of Joshua's favorite books, That Rabbit Belongs to Emily Brown.
Last week at the library, Joshua spotted another book with Emily and Stanley in Emily Brown and the Thing. It took a few times through this book, but it has quickly become a family favorite. My son already has this book mostly memorized and loves to read it over and over.
This cute book follows the imaginative story telling style of the first book. Emily Brown and Stanley go on amazing adventures through the Dark and Scary Wood, the Wild and Whirling Wastes and the twisty, turny Caverns under the stairs, all in an attempt to quiet the THING that is keeping them awake. In the end, we learn that thinking about Nice Things can help you not be afraid as you fall asleep.
This sweet story has also reinforced the lesson I have been trying to teach my son about saying "Thank you." In this book, everything Emily and Stanley get something for the THING, he says thank you. I was reminding Joshua to say thank you to his sister. His face lit up and he exclaimed, "Just like the THING says in Emily Brown." Wonderful!
