Have you read this book with your kids yet?

Homer Price by Robert McLoskey is a sweet read along book and read alone introduction to chapter book for a bit older children.  Great for boys and girls the little stories within a story make for great before bedtime reading or any time storytime fits in your day.

Amazon’s description reads:

Welcome to Centerburg!  Where you can win a hundred dollars by eating all the doughnuts you want;  where houses are built in a day; and where a boy named Homer Price can foil four slick bandits using nothing but his wits and pet skunk.

The comic genius of Robert McCloskey and his wry look at small-town America has kept readers in stitches for generations!


The stories are fun, funny, pretty fast moving and very engaging for the parents as well as the kids.

I’m a fan of many of McCloskey’s books and this one ranks right up there. My other favorites:


Make Way for Ducklings   – Make sure you get this one in hardback. It’s a keeper. And buy one for each of your children to take with them when they leave home.  I believe this is one of those books that must be in every home. Yes – it’s that good.


Blueberries for Sal – Another must have. Delightful story and engaging pictures.


Oh forget it… just go to Robert McCloskey’s page on Amazon (click) to find all his children’s books and buy them all. Really!
