How to Catch a Unicorn

There is a ‘How to Catch’ series, and this one is about unicorns. If your child likes catching the unicorn in this book, it will probably also enjoy catching a mermaid or elf.

How to Catch a Dinosaur

The book we mentioned previously, also tells about catching a dinosaur. Maybe this one is more for boys than for girls, and if they like it, they will also love the monsters and dragons in the rest of the series.

Just Go to Bed (Little Critter) (Pictureback(R))

We like this book about Little Critter, because we can relate to the story. Little Critter doesn’t want to go to bed, but his parents want him to. Telling your child this story will teach him or her the importance of routine early on in life.
