May 08 Book of the Month

Announcing Planet Silas' May 08 book of the month:

Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter Yarrow & Lenny Lipton ; pictures by Eric Puybaret.

In which Puff (magic dragon) and Jackie Paper (human boy) have adventures in the land of Honalee.
Grandma and Papa arrived from WI this afternoon, just in time to read Silas one of his current favorite stories. Silas seems to love the fact that we can sing this book to him. The illustrations are lively and fanciful. I know this story from my own childhood, and it is a joy to share it with my child now.
And we have one honorable mention this month. In keeping with the dragon theme, it is:

That's Not My Dragon by Fiona Watt.

A little mouse is looking for his dragon. On each page, we meet a different and interesting dragon, but it's not till the last page that the mouse finds what he's looking for.
Our friend Katya bought this book for Si's birthday. You really can't go wrong with a touch and feel book right now, and he can't get enough of this one. The textures are varied and fit in well with the text. You can also see Silas examining this book in the Six Signs of Silas video.
