favorite children’s books …

October 7, 2011

we love books at our house!

every so often things get really quiet around the house, and i wonder what is going on.  only to find my children (in funny places) curled up reading books.

we have a lot of favorite books, but i thought i would share some of my children’s favorite books at the moment.  you know, the ones they make you read over, and over, and over…

the david series (no david, david goes to school, david gets into trouble), by david shannon
bubba the cowboy prince, by helen ketteman – we love this book! so cute!
the snowy day, by anna milbourne (we also love the other snowy day book by ezra jack keates)
harold and the purple crayon, by crockett johnson
good night gorilla by peggy rathmann
giggle, giggle, quack, by doreen cronin
john, paul, george, and ben by lane smith – a funny book that also teaches history
the red balloon, by a lamorisse

also, speaking of children’s books.

my talented cousin france, and her husband recently wrote and illustrated a book called “where is the sears tower.”  it’s a very cute book with a great message.  you can find it here.

so, what are your favorite children’s books?

    You've listed a lot of our favorites. I would add all the Mo Willems books. He was a writer for Sesame Street and his books are amazing. The Piggy and Elephant series totally helps kids with expressions when reading and seeing how books flow.
