One of the reasons I'm doing the Book a Day challenge with my class is so that they have someone modelling reading of good books. As much as I love Bill Peet stories, these are very challenging reads and don't work well for Reading Buddies. They sure do lose listening to these stories though! They're quite amazing. My students call them chapter picture books.
