9. Little Red Hot - retelling of Little Red Riding Hood but with hot peppers
10. How to be a Cat - big on pictures small on words
11. Runaway Mummy - a parody of Runaway Bunny although I've never read the original
12. Sofia the First Princesses to the Rescue - the three princesses rescue their brothers and dads, with an appearance from Mulan
13. Little Critter & Clifford - childhood favorites that Aria has taken a fancy to as well
14. Tea Time with Sophia Grace and Rosie - best friends planning a tea party...lots of sweets, tutus, and pink
15. Camp Rex - reads like a brochure for camping but the pictures are perfection
16. Ella Sets Sail - little girl keeps losing her hat and follows it on a little adventure
17. The Poky Little Puppy - the puppy is poky
18. Moose on the Loose - what would you do with a moose in your house?
19. Sam and Dave Dig a Hole - they dig a hole...but very whimsical story
These are all favorites for Aria, but my top three are...Runaway Mummy, Camp Rex, and Sam and Dave Dig a Hole! I've got thoughts of book activities for each running through my head. If you get the chance I definitely recommend checking them out.
