I will admit, when I first read The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown, I wondered, “what is the point of this book?”
(Honestly, I thought the same thing about her more famous book, Goodnight Moon. But I grew to love it as I read it to my babies before bed.)
However, after reading The Important Book several times through, it grew on me. It is especially good to read to infants and toddlers. They will appreciate the repetition, the identifying of common objects, and the ending.
Highly recommended for birth – 4 years.
