The Children's Book Library...Our Favorites Right Now!

Thursday, October 3, 2013

Caroline has gotten to the age where she LOVES to read. Honestly, I'm glad too...it took her longer than some to get acclimated to wanting to read everyday, but now she can't get enough and we love these rituals before nap and bed time. It brings both Jeff and I SO much joy to cuddle up and enjoy a good book (or five).
There are SO MANY incredible children's books out there, too...you've got the traditional classic stories we all know and love, the trendy fun books for specific seasons/holidays, and everything in between. Here are our must-reads these days:
read all about it
Oh the Places You'll Go / Tickle Monster/ Goodnight Moon
On the Night You Were Born / Where is Baby's Pumpkin? / Madeline
The Going to Bed Book / Guess How Much I Love You / The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Other favorites include: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See; Pat the Bunny; Love You Forever; If I Could Keep You Little (I might cry EVERY SINGLE TIME I read this to Caroline); Corduroy; Peekaboo Lift/Flap Books

  2. Perfect timing. I have a kid's birthday party to attend this weekend and books is all that was requested for a gift, so I needed this!

  3. Love You Forever is a fave in our house too - despite the fact that I truly can't get through the whole thing without crying, lol!!!

  6. This is a great list! My little Liam has always been in to books. Some of our nap/bedtime favorites are: The Napping House, Little Hoot, Goodnight Little One, & I'll See You in the Morning. You should check them out as well!

  7. We love reading over here too! Noah still isn't great with the flip books... So far he rips them instead of just lifting them ;)

  11. Reading books together is one of our favorite things to do too! I love hearing what everyone else reads to their children too so we can get new ideas!

  13. We love reading over here too. It's such a sweet time before bed to go through her books and pick out her favorites. Right now she loves any of the touch and feel books, and the counting Pride and Prejudice book!

  14. Great list! Blaire is so funny about books - she's very opinionated on which ones she will read and which she's not interested in. I cannot get her to read Madeline. She vetoes it every time! It's pretty funny. We have tons of the Karen Katz lift the flap books. SO BORING. they're all the same. Blaire loved them for months and months though.

  17. We read three books every night before bed. I can recite Nancy Tillman's "Wherever You Are My Love Will Find You" by heart because that's our bedtime book....we read it last every night so that E knows it's time to go down.
