Under the Table

Author: Marisabina Russo

First line: When there's nothing to do, I crawl under the table.

Why you should read this book: A little girl explains why her special place under the coffee table is a good place to be. She engages in typical under-the-table activities, until one day she decides to start decorating the underside of the table with her crayons, an act of vandalism that goes undiscovered until someone decides to move the table. Little kids identify with and are captivated by the protagonist and her activities in this charming and amusing book.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You're too busy enjoying yourself under the table.
