Toys Come Home by Emily Jenkins
When the birthday girl opens her package this year, she gets a blue fluffy stingray to cuddle. And the stingray is happy...
Schwartz & Wade sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you). This is a prequel to Toys Go Out and Toy Dance Party. It was published in September, so you can get a copy at your local bookstore now. Subtitle on the book is: Being the Early Experiences of an Intelligent Stingray, a Brave Buffalo, and a Brad-New Someone Called Plastic.
This is a delightful story of toys that come alive and talk amongst themselves. They vie for the best views, sleepy time with their girl, and the chance to go on trips with her. They also take care of each other.
Such a cute tale will fascinate the little ones and make them wonder if their stuffed animals talk while they are out of the room or asleep. This would also make a good "read aloud" book. Why not get a copy and read it to them before bed each night until you've completed the story. They'll love it!
