One of the most delightful parts of having books to read to our son is finding out there are interactive books out there. While William is only able to interact back to some extent, it’s great finding out there are books that have components that are meant to be touched, move or both. “Thank You For Being My Friend” is a book that allows the parent to take on the role of the horse.

As a member of Amazon Prime, I get my choice of one free Kindle book a month from a few options. While I don’t always choose one, due to time, presented selections of both, I did find the summary of the book Neighborly, interesting enough to choose and read this month. The description of the book was one in which a couple, Kat and Doug, and their infant daughter, move to a new neighborhood for a fresh start. Kat has a huge secret that no one, even her husband knows, and she starts getting threatening messages soon after she moves in. The neighbors also have a secret they will learn. This seemed like a fun book to read from that, so I had high hopes for it.

One of the coolest parts of being a new mom is finding out about children’s books. As a child I was an avid reader, and I knew I’d definitely enjoy sharing that love of reading with our child. However, there are many children’s books I’ve only learned about recently despite them being very popular for children. I had no idea who Richard Scarry as until I received a few of his books from Candy including “Best Lowly Worm Book Ever?” as a shower present.

When we read to William we get mixed results, everything from a lot of interest to no interest at all. This is one of two books that I tried to read to him one night when he was fussing, the other being Ten Apples Up on Top. As with that book, due to his reaction, I had to reread it to properly review it here. This was a book that had quite the reaction at the same parts from Matt and I both.

For this review I had to reread the book to truly review it. Upon first reading William was fussing and uninterested. I read it faster than I may normally have, trying to keep his attention. Neither this book, nor the other one I read, which I will review soon held his interest, though at his age, that may be expected. I formed my first opinion of the book during that hurried read, and now have reread it to fully form and report on my opinion.
