How Many Feet in the Bed? by Diane Johnston Hamm and illustrated by Kate Salley Palmer is Nicholas' new favorite book ever. This whimsical counting book takes as its setting a comfortable, though boisterous family morning routine where children crawl into the parents' bed and parents jump out.
Nicholas recommends that you read this book with your family on Saturday morning, as that is the time when your father's feet are most likely to be counted among all those in the bed. The more feet the better when it comes to counting and family fun.
Nicholas also recommends that you place this book in a handy spot before you go to bed at night so you can just bring it in to your parents' room or go back and fetch it if you had already climbed into their bed in the middle of the night.
Lastly, the above illustration on the left is Nicholas' favorite character in this book. The picture on the right is of our guest literary critic, Nicholas himself.
