When full at last, he made a cocoon around himself and went to sleep, to wake up a few weeks later wonderfully transformed into a butterfly!”
2. This Is Not My Hat – Jon Klassen
“When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), trouble could be following close behind. So it’s a good thing that enormous fish won’t wake up. And even if he does, it’s not like he’ll ever know what happened…”
3. We’re Going On a Bear Hunt – Michael Rosen

7. I Broke My Trunk – Mo Willems
内容以简单对话呈现，文字重复却一点也不乏味，可见作者的功力非同凡响。多多2-3岁时，这是一本鼓励Role Play学习讲英语的绘本；认字后，这是一本鼓励孩子独立阅读的绘本。这也是系列之一，多多很喜欢的还有I am Invited to a Party，Watch me Throw the Ball，Let’s Go for a Ride等等。

10. My Teacher is a Monster！（No, I am not.) – Peter Brown
严厉的老师在班上吆喝顽皮捣蛋的孩子，学校以外的老师是怎样的呢？Peter Brown的作品我们家也看了不少，其中以 Mr. Tiger Goes Wild《老虎先生来撒野》点播率最高，但我觉得这本更容易引起家长的共鸣，毕竟我们都曾经是孩子。适合与4岁以上的孩子共读。
