What are you favorite children's books? Which books do you find yourself having to read to your kids everyday? Thought it might be fun to get some ideas for moms looking to buy books to read their babes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I wish I had started reading with my daughter earlier; she has just started really getting into it and wanting 6 stories read to her before bed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> We started a lot younger with my son and he really got into it fast.<br><br><br>
My kids' current favorites:<br><br><i>My Truck is Stuck</i> by Kevin Lewis<br><i>Chugga-Chugga Choo-Choo</i> by Kevin Lewis<br><i>The Paper Bag Princess</i> by Robert Munsch<br><i>The Princess Knight</i> by Cornelia Funke<br><i>Alice The Fairy</i> by David Shannon<br><i>The Very Smart Pea and Princess to Be</i> by Mini Grey<br><i>Who Said Boo?</i> by Phyllis Root (The Halloween book I can't seem to put away <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">-- it's one of those open the flap/door books and my kids LOVE those)<br><br>
My Favs:<br><br><i>Sylvester and The Magic Pebble</i> by William Steig<br><i>Strega Nona</i> by Tomie dePaola

My 31/2 year old dd loves The Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. My ds loves any board books with simple pictures that he can point at and say the word after me.

My dd still loves Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. I started reading that to her while she was in the womb. And Guess How Much I Love You!<br><br>
She loves Hop on Pop (Dr. Seuss), Any Miss Spider Book by David Kirk.<br><br>
We regularly get books from the library so I get a variety. But we also read 6 or more daily...

we have tons of Boynton books! Their favorite right now is <i>Doggies</i>.<br><br><br>
Also they love (and these were big hits when they were babies, too) the <i>That's Not</i> books<br><i><br>
That's Not My Dolly<br>
That's Not My Puppy<br>
That's Not My Bunny</i><br>
etc<br><br>
They are by Fiona Watt<br><br>
The pages have fur or bumps or things like that on them to touch, too, which they really love.

"Cars, Trucks and things that go" by Richard Scarry.<br><br>
Absoulte alltime favorite. He looks for the "goldbug" that is hiding on each page...he'll spend 20 minutes on that book alone!<br><br>
MANY others..."brown bear brown bear", "Go Dog Go" to name a couple.

I'll have to go look at their bookshelf for the titles.<br><br>
I know that Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Eric Carle is way high on the list though. My 3 yr old "reads" it to my 2 year old all the time.<br><br>
There's another one called Big Bulldozer that he's also memorized and "reads" to us.<br>
They like Runaway Bunny too.
