Before Five in a Row

Almost one year ago I made a quick post about how I had the Before Five in a Row book and I needed to use it.  Well, I have given up on BFIAR.  Why?  Just a few reasons.

1.  Most of the books we had already read.
2.  My dd is not one that enjoys reading books over and over unless it is of her choosing.
3.  Most suggestions are things that I naturally do when reading a book (eg. talk about the characters).

However, this is a great resource if you are trying to find some more books for your home library.  Most titles were purchased by our family after previewing from the library.  The age range that my dd enjoyed these books was approximately 18m (Goodnight Moon, Runaway Bunny) – 3 years old (Blueberries for Sal, The Big Green Pocketbook).
