Inspiring suggestions! My daughter loves the Pigeon books, and I just 
read that Don't let the Pigeon Stay Up Late won some popularity awards 
with kids, so that would make it a good one to talk about. I also think 
I might go with the Caldecott winner by Norton Juster. It looks really 
interesting - The Hello Goodbye Window.

Thanks everyone for your input.
