I love Shel Silverstein's Poems and my older son has some of his anthologies. If you don't know much about him, I'd encourage you to read his biography on Wikipedia.katencam said:I try to find books for Cam which are not complicated stories but have some thought provoking material...We actually read the "The Giving Tree" tonight by Silverstein and had a really long talk about selfishness and friendship and some 4 year old randomness that was not at all connected but still talking!!

I know that McMillian and Scholastic both publish good sets too, But the "I'm going to read" are my favorite as they really drill the phonics in a fun way. If you put "Who took the cake" into Google books you can see a sample. It's Who took the cake by Robert Wurzburg. My son is learning to read so fast with them (and others, there's a Batman series he loves, that we read together, I have him read a few then I read, we switch off. Why not go to the bookstore and browse them. My boys love going and picking out books.
