Ask Me by Bernard Waber
After he’s tucked in at bedtime, a little boy talks to his stuffed animals. He shares with them all the things that he did during the day and asks all about what his stuffies did that day, too. Though the animals don’t use their words to reply, the whole story of the animals and the boy comes together as they remember their fun, exciting day. ▸ Get it at the Library

Can Oliver convince his family to join him in the faraway woods? ▸ Get it at the Library
