I love books. When I was a child I loved Scholastic book orders, book fairs, book stores, and the library. When I got to college, I got the opportunity to study children's literature there too. I don't have nearly as much time to devote to reading (for myself) as I once did, but now I get to share great books with the littles (and not so littles--as Kate will be eight (!) in a week). We've read some great classics in the past couple of years, but now we get to pull out some of those fun board books again.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Guess How Much I Love You is a sweet little book in which the parent always loves the child more. It is the first book I remember Justin reading to the kids--
Horns to Toes and in Between is a fun book. It teaches body parts, I suppose, but it is so funny that you wouldn't know it. And, unless your a monster, I guess most of us don't really have the tails that are described in the book either. The children love that there are instructions to tickle them in the book. Sandra Boynton is a favorite author here.
Moo, Baa, La La La! is another Boynton book. It is full of animal sounds and more silliness.
Kate every night for about a year.
