Honey, Honey, Lion by Jan Brett

Not necessarily my favorite book in particular, maybe because I don't really get the punchline at the end, or that its about getting revenge - but, Ava adored it. Perhaps its the page-turner details of what happens between a greedy badger and a bird that she likes so much. Or maybe she likes the idea of justice - either way, its a hit with my little ones. And what I love about this book? Jan Brett. Her illustrations are frame worthy, and the fact that this story is an adaptation from African folktale.

Ms. Brett has some coloring sheets of the animals in this book on her website - great for those wanting to extend the learning.
