We’ve accumulated quite a few books over the past three years, but we seem to read the same ones over and over! Here’s a quick list of some of our favorites.

Mom’s Favorite: The Goodnight Train by June Sobel with illustrations by Laura Huliska-Beith. The flow of the words make this book fun for me to read.

Dad’s Favorite: Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown with illustrations by Clement Hurd – a classic.

Favorite at Age 1: How Big Is a Pig by Clare Beaton with illustrations by Stella Blackstone. Great for learning animal sounds and opposites.

Favorite at Age 2: Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree by Eileen Christelow. Get the board book so you can SNAP the book closed when the alligator comes.

Favorite at Age 3: First Look and Find Books. We have Mickey, Dora, Frozen, and more!

Other Favorites:

I Am a Bunny by Ole Risom is a simple story about the seasons with illustrations by Richard Scary that make me nostalgic.

Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson with illustrations by Jane Chapman has wonderful rhythm and rhyme – almost like a song.

Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle with illustrations by Jill McElmurry. This whole series is a winner.
