In my last post, I wrote about book shelves. This week, I’d love to highlight some of the books that my children adore. I hope you like them.
1. Hug: Every time my daughter and I read the word “hug,” we actually hug. Yup, pretty darn cute, if I do say so. 2. Mommy Hugs: I love the illustrations of all Karen Katz’s books. 3. My First Word Book: Excellent for building baby’s vocabulary.
4. Goodnight Moon: A must-have for everyone’s library. 5. Corduroy: A childhood classic!
6. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day: My 6-year-old will quote this book when he is having a bad day. Sometimes I think he really means it when he says he wants to move to Australia. Eeek! 7. The Giving Tree: This book is geared towards older children. My 3- and 6-year old enjoy it. Prepare to cry.
These are great! A few of our favorites include “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus!”, and “The Monster at the End of this Book”. Rachel, http://www.petiteliterary.com
Great list! Not having grown up with “Goodnight Moon”, it was such a great surprise the first time I read it to my son. It always makes me want to jump right into that cozy, warm room. We’re also big fans of almost anything by Dr. Seuss these days.
I love Karen Katz’s books. The first one I bought was her book “Peek-A-Boo!” It’s really nice to be able to build a mini library and teach the kids the importance of reading, even at an early age.
For Christmas I bought “Daddy Hugs” by Karen Katz and wrapped it up for my husband and little girl, from me! He loved reading it to her. We have Goodnight Moon, but I will need to check out more of these books as well :)
