Show Us Your Life – Favorite Children’s Books

I love children’s books.  I have always been an avid reader and I hope to pass my love of books down to Charlotte.  Here are some of my all-time favorites from when I was growing up and some of my new favorites that Charlotte has introduced me to.  I can’t wait to get ideas about great books from others during Kelly’s tour today!

The Napping House by Don and Audrey Wood
Really, anything by Don and Audrey Wood is fantastic.  They have great books with great illustrations.  I got to meet them once at a Young Author’s Conference and so some of my books are signed.  I can tell you that as a child I loved having books signed by the authors!
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury
Twinkle Toes by Karen Katz
Charlotte loves this touch and feel book but she also loves Karen Katz’s other books like Princess Baby.  The bright colors and cute little girls make these books easily relate-able and the catchy stories are easy to read.
These are some of Charlotte’s absolute favorite books. I can’t wait to read about other must reads!

Make sure you enter for my Gussy giveaway which ends TOMORROW (Sat, 5/15) and my Must Read giveaway which ends Wednesday, 5/19.  Check out my giveaways page for a listing of all giveaways in the month of May in honor of Charlotte’s first birthday!

    Never heard of the Napping House. I’ve added it to my list and I’m going to look for it at the library next week. I’m always looking for new books to read to the kids I baby-sit…I’m sure any of your recommendations would be wonderful!
