In which The Five-Year-Old explains how to pick a great book

Mr. PUtter & Tabby Stir the Soup by Cynthia Rylant. The latest in a very long string of excellent books brought home by The Five-Year-Old, and the book which triggered this morning's question.

Mr. Putter & Tabby Stir the Soup by Cynthia Rylant, the latest in a long line of excellent books brought home by The Five-Year-Old.

The Five-Year-Old visits her school library every week. And every week she comes home with a simply fabulous book. Meanwhile, I’ve been lugging home dud after dud.

So I asked her, “The Five-Year-Old, you bring the best books home from school. How do you do it?”

The Five-Year-Old, matter-of-factly: “I look for cats on the cover.”
