A Boy Had a Mother Who Bought Him a Hat by Karla Kuskin and illustrated Kevin Hawkes is the perfect book to read to your little one. With rhyme and repetition, this story is fun to read aloud!
A mother loves her son so much that she buys him a red hat, a mouse, new shoes and a variety of other gifts from the practical to the fanciful. Wherever the boy goes he takes each gift with him, piling one on top of the other until the inevitable happens. With each new gift, the story of past gifts are repeated. Both rhyme and repetition of each item as one more is added makes this story fun to read aloud.
