Tongue Tied - Difficult To Read Children's Books

I've decided I simply must write childrens books.  Or read them before I purchase them.  It's a little difficult at times if you have a squirmy baby blabbing loundly in my carriage as I stroll down the aisle of books at Toys R Us, but I think I made a hasty purchase.  My son is great at sitting with me at bedtime and having a story read to him, with the latest book I purchased, I am the problem.  I can't say the characters names without becoming exhausted.  Don't get me wrong, the idea behind this story is fantastic and I am considering editing it on my own to change the names to something a little easier to spit out. 
For your information, the characters in this story are "Little Nutbrown Hare", and "Big Nutbrown Hare", and you will say those names a LOT of times.  Like I said, the story is lovely so I'm not recomending that you stay away, just brace yourself. 


Oh, and I think I actually might have added "become a childrens book author" to my to do list..yikes!

  1. I had the same issue with this book but i love it! You should also check out I love you Stinky Face. It's one of my favorites and has started prompted Maia to start a "Mama, what if I was..." game with me.
