Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!

You would think he would be too short to see over the wheel anyway.

It's fun because it's interactive, but the only problem is, if you have a contrarian kid who decides to say yes, it doesn't work. Other than that, it's fun, and as the book says, it allows the little kid to say "no" and be more or less rewarded for it, which is kind of good because toddlers like to say "no" to many things despite not being in control.

Edgar's Second Word

Come on, baby! Get with the program!

I can really identify with this. As the mother of two little boys, one of whom is not yet talking, and the other of whom doesn't use complete sentences, I'm still waiting for some of this. For conversations. For him to ask, "Why?" It's happening. It's happening slowly. And every step along the way is precious, but still frustrating occasionally.

Follow your dreams.

Basically it's got a pretty strong, but not anvilicious message of "don't let people get to you." All you need is one person to help you with your dream.

Give and ye shall receive.

The guy's generous, and he gets rewarded for it, in kind of a realistic manner. It's a little exaggerated, but basically he gives everything he has, and what he has gets broken, and then fixed by the thankful recipients.

Be generous. Help other people out.

Always and Forever

Subheader: 

Always remember the good times.

It's a really good depiction of what it's like to lose someone. There's nothing religious to it, nothing existential, just a very relatable depiction of the pain you feel when someone dies.

You don't have to forget those who died in order to live your life. You can keep the memory of them alive.

Watching the text play across the page.

There's not a lot to it, but it doesn't seem like it's trying to be more than it is. It kind of has a dreamlike quality to it, as the words swirl around the pages, and the images are almost like sketches rather than full-on realism.
