Toddler Book Basket

Our basket of well-loved toddler books

I love books.  And I especially love children’s books.  My mom read to us a whole lot when we were kids.  So now I have the joy of reading to my kids!  I keep my very favorite books for my 18 month old in a basket on the table by our couch, so I can reach for one whenever he needs to snuggle and read a book with mommy.  Usually my older kids join us on the couch as they love all of these books too.  They cannot yet read, but sometimes, they will ‘read’ these books to their younger brother using their memories and the pictures.  It warms my heart to hear this!  My favorite books this month:

1.  Caps For Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina

2.  I Love You Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt

3.  Barnyard Dance by Sandra Boynton

4.  Moo Baa La La La by Sandra Boynton

5.  The Itsy Bitsy Spider told and illustrated by Iza Trapani (we sing this whole book- with all the extra verses!)

6.  My Daddy and I by P.K. Hallinan (usually I save this book to be ready by Daddy)

7.  A is for Alligator by Kim Mitzo Thompson and Karen Mitzo Hilderbrand (this book comes with a CD that the kids absolutely love- we’ve read this book so often that the cover has completely torn off and needs some surgical packing tape!)

8.  My First Counting Book– A Golden Book by Lilian Moore (my mother read this to me when I was little- I remember the beautiful illustrations!)

9.  The Fuzzy Duckling– A Golden Book by Jane Werner Watson (another book from my childhood)

Snuggle Time with my toddler!

My youngest two- buddies already!
