More Books for Gamers in Training

Three more book recommendations for gamer parents with young kids.

Dave and Sam Dig a Hole
Mac Barnett

Not a bad first dungeon crawl. Teaches all the essentials: bring supplies (chocolate milk and animal crackers), the value of henchmen (dog), and don’t split the party! Jon Klassen’s illustrations are beautiful in their simplicity, as usual.

Extra Yarn
Mac Barnett

Another Mac Barnett / Jon Klassen collaboration. Fun, whimsical, and gives read-aloud dads a chance to ham it up as the mustache-twirling villain.

Everything I Know About Pirates
Tim Lichtenheld

Does it matter that there is not an actual FACT in this book? Of course not! It’s about pirates. Not blood thirsty murderous scalawags or even Disney pirates, but pirates by way of kindergarten logic.
