My Two Cents
My love for Mac Barnett is no secret. Not to be cliche, but this book had me at hello. The cover is perfection! My boys could not wait to read this one...and when we did, I think I read it to them about 3 times in a row!
My favorite unintended lesson in this book is that life doesn't necessarily take you straight down a road. There are twists, turns, and surprises all along the way. The more you read it, the more you will catch...so many little hidden mysteries! My family and I enjoyed Sam & Dave Dig A Hole immensely--and I think you will too!
Oh, and just in case you don't already love this dynamic duo, watch this super fun book trailer:
