My son J *loves* this book - he's 4.5.   The child in the book gets into peril, but through a series of mishaps, gets back to safety.  The illustrations are a bit odd, but that intrigues J.  Anyway, I recommend it for the adventurous preschooler. :)

There's a series of Good/Bad books too; I just ordered a second one, That's Good/That's Bad in the Grand Canyon.

Very cool! I like the message, and the artwork on the covers is awesome!

L. I checked the Grand Canyon one out of the library today.  It looks great, engaging lyrical text and awesome pictures!  I think J. would like the Skippyjon Jones books too.  It has the same feel to it, DD loves them. It's a Siamese Cat that pretends to be a Chihuahua. The hardcovers come with a cd and the writer narrates the books, she does a great job with the voices.

If you already know about these ..nevermind..lol!

We have one Skippyjon Jones book - I forgot we had it  - I'll have to dig it out!  Thanks for the reminder. :)

The other cat book we have is called Bad Kitty.  It's pretty cute too. :)

ETA:  We just got TG,TB in the Grand Canyon, and I don't think it's quite as good as the original, but it's pretty cute. :)
