What are some of your favorite children’s books? Not your child’s favorites, but the books you most love reading to your offspring. There are some books that bore me or leave me blankly staring at the last page in disbelief that the book even got published! I’d really love to hear of some well loved, dog-eared books in your house so I can share them with my family. Please leave a quick comment with your treasured titles.
Here’s a list of some of the picture books I thoroughly enjoy reading to my lads. We own loads of books, and borrow around 30 library books a week, so there are far too many to list, but I’ll give you a small sample. These days Isaac is reading lots of novels, but he still loves being read to and snuggling on the couch. Asher is learning to read, and one of his favorite things is raiding the library book box numerous times a day for story time. I treasure these moments. There will be a day that they’ll be too big to fit on my lap (unless I grow my lap!!), and too “mature” for picture books. Loving it while I can.
