Yesterday I dispensed some advice for my child self in the unlikely event that I’ll get a do-over. Thankfully, it’s never too late to take one’s own advice.
Today’s topic is near and dear to me.
Favorite Childhood Books
I love children’s literature. I love reading to my children, I love listening to my oldest read, I love looking through the children’s books at the library. My oldest child loves to read and has her very own reading corner. I usually have 3 or 4 books going on my night stand at one time.
This is a list of my all-time favorite children’s books:
The Giving Tree
Goodnight Moon, Runaway Bunny
Green Eggs and Ham
The Ox Cart Man
Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel
Maybelle the Cable Car
The Pokey Little Puppy
The Relatives Came
Books from my childhood that I purchased for my kids:
Mr. Bell’s Fix It Shop
Charlie’s Be Kind Day
Let’s Go All Around the Neighborhood
Panda Bear’s Paint Box
We Help Daddy
Milk and Cookies
But No Elephants
In additional to these books, I also love the Little Critter books by Mercer Mayer and all of the Berenstain Bears books.
