What James Likes Best

Illustrated by: Amy Schwartz

  • 7
James is a lucky boy.
He has Mommy
and Daddy
and Grandma
and Auntie who all love him.

He has a best friend, Angela.

James lives in the city,
near enough to a fairground
to ride there in a yellow car.

He's near a bus line, too.
An express!

And what's more,
he already has four stories
written about him
in one book,
pictured in charming detail,
and just right for participation
by other boys and girls
of James's lucky age.
