Our Four Year Old Son’s Favorite Four Books [PHOTOS]

My wife and I believe that children who grow up in homes where books are plentiful go further in school than those who don't. This is why our son Dylan's room has plenty of books.

When the anti-smoking commercials play on TV, I let him watch. Am I too edgy? Are the commercials too scary for a young child?
