Chloe by Peter McCarty

Chloe has a large family--twenty brothers and sisters--but she's the only one who objects when Dad brings home a new TV. Watching TV is not family fun time. Chloe and her baby sister Bridget discover the joys of cardboard boxes and bubble wrap. They slowly convince their other brothers and sisters that playing and imagining is more fun than watching TV.

What I thought: I love how Chloe promotes imaginative play as a better family fun activity than watching TV. I love the illustrations--soft colors and quite inviting to the viewer. Bridget, of course, is my favorite bunny.
