We Are in a Book! by Mo Willems [Hamish L, Avondale]
Elephant and Piggie realise, to their surprise, that they are in a book. They realise that you, the reader, is reading them. They want to see if they can make you say a word (the word is "bananas"). Will you do what the animals in the book tell you to do?
Parents, if you want to encourage your kids to be critical readers, who realise that what they are reading comes from a particular context, and is written by an author who is a person just like them, this is an engaging and fun place to start for quite young ones.
