Our Thoughts

Absolutely love this book! My first thought when looking at the cover was that it reminded me of A Series of Unfortunate Events. Unlike that popular and riveting series, the children in this book are never in any harm. Rather they get to explore a hotel and find new friends behind every door. Well, every door but door 32. Don’t ever look behind door 32. 

I love how this book introduces counting in a way that the kids don’t even realize they are counting. With the repetition of Door 32, it makes it easy to read with Lincoln as he is still learning to read. He caught on to door 32 pretty quick and was able to read the numbers along with me. It goes beyond counting, so yes parents, this is one you can read over and over again.

One day I walked into our family room just as Rosie put it down once again. She giggled, not knowing I was in the room with her. Out loud she quietly whispered, “That’s a good book”. 

Any parent knows that when they catch their child in moments like that, it’s a winner.
