The next thing you might think of is what book would your child like. It all depends on what your kid likes. Here are some recommendations that your kids will surely enjoy reading.

While it seemed all chaos and disaster for the adults, Harold and the kids loved having the animals around for his birthday. It also made a happy ending, reminding the parents of their natural instinct. Life must be enjoyed.
