Bubble Trouble, by Margaret Mahy.

But if you do, practice beforehand, because the entire book is like a tongue twister!

Or Press Here, by Herve Tullet for an interactive one; a different child could do the actions on each page. It's fun, it's like a fake iPad.

Awesome, thanks! I'm going to the library with a LIST. Extra special super thanks for links/last names.

Eta yeah, definitely out of touch - I needed this. My daughter is a bit past these and has always liked wordy stories, and 4 words is too many for my son.

The Gruffalo is a fantastic and fun book. My kids also really enjoy White Rabbit's Color Book, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Huggly, Little Critters, etc.

I know you are already headed to the library but I agree, with the other posters Mo Willems is the best. We also love Pete the Cat and the Splat Cat books too!

Well not everything was there. I got a couple Elephant & Piggies, Press Here, Blueberries for Sal, and More Bears. No Skippyjon, Pigeon books, Mahy books were available. I leave the pleasure of Seuss to others. We'll test drive these and see if we like them. Thanks!

Press Here is clever! Gigi asked to start over twice but didn't get that option on the third go around. She pressed so hard the first time the book fell out of my hand. I think we should own it.
