Tickle Monster!

My last day with the girls was Friday. :-( They love reading and I am obsessed with children's literature so I thought I'd share with them one of my favorite books. They loved it and we read it four times before nap and then six times after nap. I'd say this book will be in the nightly rotation for awhile! ;-)
