I like how A Thousand Billion Things (and Some Sheep) lays out all the wonderful and myriad options a kid gets to choose from each day. Choosing the path you’ll take — wisely — is part of learning responsibility, and becoming successful, too. This delightful book takes the “Where’s Waldo?” and “I Spy” approach to a fun and delightful level as it lays out hundreds of different, everyday (and unusual) objects on each large, two-page spread.
Each spread asks the reader to find a specific object from among them. But really, looking at each charming thing is much of the fun, and I find that as my kids return to this wonderful book, again and again, they are gently reminded about all the options open to them in their happy lives.
