Children’s Books

January 27, 2010

I have a bit of a love for children’s books.  Some, like Chris or my sister-in-law, Ashley, may call my feelings for children’s books more of an “obsession” than a love.  Whatever you call it, I enjoy reading them, sharing them with others, and giving them as gifts.  I would like to tell you that this passion I have for children’s books started three years ago when I became a mom; however, that is not the case at all.  I have been reading and buying these books since I was in high school.  I find they are some of the greatest stories to teach and to entertain both children and adults.

Just out of curiosity….what are your favorite children’s books?  Which ones did you love as a child?  Which ones do you love as an adult?  Which are your favorite to share with a young reader like Brady or Abby?

    Have you heard of the book “You’re All My Favorites” by Sam McBratney? I love it! I received it from a friend of mine when Elison was born. It’s so sweet and good to read to siblings!
