Kids lit this week includes the ever present Star Wars books. Much to my son's delight we're meeting Ahsoka Tano. Instead of Junie B. Jones I persuaded my daughter to give Ruby Lu Brave and True a try. It seemed interesting and will broaden our horizons a bit, the kids have never read a book with a Chinese American protagonist.
And I checked out Walter the Farting Dog and the yard sale but I just don't like it. My son (and daughter despite her generally prudish self) enjoy potty based humor as much as any 4 or 6 year old. But the bubble I've built is so sound my son didn't know what the word farting meant. I say "passing gas" and so do they. I've got a foul mouth and a relaxed sense of humor (my husband might disagree but he could create his own blog to do so) but for whatever reason I read thru the book and I was really turned off at the prospect of saying fart 2x per page.
