Or maybe it's me that picks out the book over and over at bedtime. I was really touched the other day when my 5-year-old son helped my 3-year-old son zip his jacket, looked at me and said "a brother is to help." A great book that everyone should read.

My girlfriend got this book as a Christmas present, and I picked it up and read it. We don't know why it isn't listed with the zen books! Simple, profound truths about the world we live in: dishes are to do.

See the world through a child's eyes, you can almost hear the children telling the teacher these definitions as she wrote them down.My 7 year old and 2 year old love it.

I love this book, and so does my 5-year-old.
It's quirky and a wee bit old-fashioned, and it takes a little practice to read it well - but it is really delightful.
