Picture books that have AP-ish instead of mainstream details

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I'm not looking necessarily for books that are about breastfeeding, co-sleeping, baby wearing, homeschooling, etc., but more so just have them as normal details within the story. Any suggestions? They're for reading to my 2.5 year old, who has graduated from only tolerating like half of a board book to now enjoying entire picture books one after the other.

 

An example would be this board book, 'I Love You As Much', which in the final page has a momma laying in bed with her infant: http://www.amazon.com/I-Love-You-As-Much/dp/0688159788

Sometimes I Like to Curl Up in a Ball by Vicki Churchill and Charles Fuge, is one of my favorite board books ever! The book shows baby wombat enjoying himself throughout the day with no judgement, and then at the end the mommy and baby wombat curl up together co-sleeping. It's lovely.

One of the loveliest books I've ever seen, and very AP friendly! Home birth, involved and loving grandparents, natural food, playing outside. I adore it. =)

The Seven Silly Eaters,  by Mary Ann Hoberman and Marla Frazee.   My kids and I loved this story.  The story doesn't mention a single thing on your list, but the illustrations are amazing and depict a pretty crunchy, natural family.  They kinda look like a home school family.

There was one I saw years ago that was really cute.  I can't remember the name though.  It was about a family who got a new puppy.  The parents were tattooed and pierced, and I remember the family being AP but I can't remember details.  It's been a while.  Maybe someone here will remember it.

I LOVE this book. Also Someday by Allison McGhee is great. Kiss Good Night by Amy Hest is not exactly AP, but very sweet and loving and gentle.

Everywhere Babies by Susan Meyers, and All the World by Liz Garton Scanlon.  They're both illustrated by the same person, Marla Frazee, and lots of the illustrations show moms that are breastfeeding, parents who are babywearing, etc.  I love them both!!

the bare naked book, which is such a great book in its own right, shows a mom breastfeeding her infant.
