Eclectic, cross-genre mood reader (but of late, mostly erotica, romance & para/UF—including m/m & ménage). At times, the realities of life & work tend to dictate how UNreal a world I choose for an escape.
Fair warning: I may walk like a lady but I cuss like a salty sailor. ^.~
For reading out loud to a child, the major appeal of LAST NIGHT I HAD A LAUGHMARE by J. E. Laufer is its simple rhyming scheme—easy to read, with some clever and/or nonsensical combinations. Definitely had some chuckle moments!
THE GOOD: Cute, eye- and kid-friendly drawings which immediately captured a toddler’s attention. Bright (but not garish) colors used very well to provide contrast and make certain things pop out. Not too long, so perfect as a settle-into-bed treat.
THE BAD: None really, except that your child may be too awake from giggling to sleep afterwards. ^.^ But... if I had to pick something, perhaps the text could’ve been a wee bit larger, both for me and a child learning to read. (But then, perhaps it is in the final, published version?)
