Amanda is 15 1/2 years old and her favorite books are the Knuffle Bunny books by Mo Willems. They are short picture books about a girl named Trixie and her favorite toy, Knuffle Bunny. Each of the three books shows that Trixie is not very responsible with her stuffed rabbit that she can't live without but can't seem to keep up with either.
The best part about these books is that I have them completely memorized. I turn the pages and recite them Amanda who is enthralled with the story. As soon as I finish on of the three books Amanda goes to bed. The whole process takes less than 10 minutes. This is one of the great improvements we have made the past couple of years.
