Davey Big Head:Dream Big by Peter Hayden
Davey Big Head is about a boy who - you guessed it - has a big head. This book teaches kids that everyone is different but it's the differences that make us special. The pages of this book are very colorful. It's not your typical white page with drawings on it. The pages are vibrant colors which actually attract my two 21 month old daughters to enjoy this book. It's also a good book to help teach kids how to read. The words are simple and not extravagant. It's lots of words that kids would be learning in 1st through 3rd grade. My son liked this book and it was his book of choice for bedtime reading for about 2 weeks. It's a good book that helps to get the kids thinking and allows them to analyze and think through problems and come up with solutions. "Davey thought of something he can do with his big head - do you know what it is??" Overall, a good book that kids will enjoy and has a message. I read this was going to be a start of a series and I'll definitely get the next ones.
