Nat and I just read about half of Once Upon a Poem. It's got beautiful illustrations, and there were some new poems (The Ride of Paul Revere, some Hillaire Belloc, The Cremation of Sam McGee) and some old favourites (The Owl and the Pussycat, Wynken, Blynken, and Nod). We're really enjoying it.
I actually got two dictionaries. This is the simpler one, and Nat is flipping through it right now, just before going to bed. Perfect. I want to encourage his natural desire to look up everything he doesn't know.
