If you’re any kind of parent, you need this book. Madeline is a classic. Especially in our house. Every kid will question Madeline’s scar. Where is it? How did she get it? Is she sick? Is she in the hospital? Will she be ok? The artwork in this book is also a perfect fit.
My favorite quote:
“And all the girls cried, “Boohoo, we want to have our appendix out, too!”
