    Out of what we have, the Amelia Bedelia chapter books have larger text than most "real" books and a good smattering of interesting illustrations in the margins to break things up.

    As far as books with lots of pictures, my son loves the Studio Ghibli movies and there are lovely books that have full page illustrations from the movie with a nice amount of text overlayed on them. They have a lot of challenging new words, but no wall of text issues. Plus they are very interesting stories. I recommend Ponyo, Totoro, The Cat Returns, The Secret World of Arrietty (the link for this one includes some picture to see what the inside of the books look like), and Kiki's Delivery Service for young children. Some of the other books have some sections that may be a little scary for kids depending on the child. As there isn't a lot of text per page, the books are very long, about a hundred pages each. I highly recommend them.

    That makes sense. Some of my fourth year classes were less than 20 as they were only for my major and we knew each others and the lecturers by the.

    Some law and engineering are 5 years I think.

    My 4 year-old really enjoyed the classic Winnie the Pooh book. The chapters are short stories. Nate the Great, Cam Jansen, and Martha Speaks books are also hits

    Astrid Lindgren: children of troublemaker street, children of noisy village, Pippi long stocking. You may want to check whether the American editions have pictures, but the chapters in these books are self contained, sort of like short stories, and mostly very gentle (Pippi isn't everyone's cup of tea, and I tend to skip the tall stories and adult baiting these days, focusing on the play times in the house and outdoor adventures.)
