Books. I made it a point to ensure that my kiddos loved books. Reading books is one our favorite past times. No matter how many books we come across, or check out from the library...this list is the ones my kiddos insist we read over and over again. Sometimes we don't even read the words...we count items...or look for the mouse...or talk about the photos...whatever they feel like engaging in...as long as they are interested in the book.
Here is our list starting at the top moving left to right: Charlie the Ranch Dog ...I didn't know this one would be such a hit but Lyla loves this book // Pinkalicious (or any book in this series) // Where the Sidewalk Ends...a favorite of mine and the kidlets never tire of these poems // Jesse Bear, What Will You Wear? ...the book I read is actually the book I had as a kid, needless to say this book has seen better days // Count the Monkeys ... a new favorite and a fun read! // Press Here ...also a new favorite and a fun read...if you haven't read this one yet, do so // Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? ... a classic for a reason // Pete the Cat ... Lyla's favorite...and all the Pete the Cat books are great /// Goodnight Moon ... every house with kids should have a copy of this book...Jude loves to find the mouse in this book // The Very Hungry Caterpillar ... one of my favorite all time memories is of Elisabeth reading this book // Are You My Mother? ... I think my kids love this book b/c we swap out the animals for our dogs name // Llama Llama Red Pajamas // The Christian Mother Goose Book ...this book was also mine as a child, and puts a godly spin on nursery rhymes // The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog ... Jude and Lyla can't get enough of this book. // No, David! ... and pretty much anything by David Shannon is worth getting.
So tell me what are you favorite children books?
