Phyllis Root: The House That Jill Built

The House That Jill Built - Phyllis Root

Well this book is amazing. The illustrations are great, and it is a flap book so there's lots to do on each page. The story is that Jill and her trusty dog build a little house, but then familiar characters from old fairy tales (Little Jack Horner, the Three Little Kittens, Old Mother Hubbard, Little Bo Peep, etc) keep showing up, so she has to keep building new rooms for them. The best part is that if you follow the characters from page to page, they each have their own stories that are not in the text. This one got read so many times I had to buy a second copy. Highly recommended!
