First… I would like to say THANK YOU to all of you amazing moms who left me such great advice for “Must need nursery items” a couple of weeks ago!
Seriously, if any of you know any soon-to-be mothers I would recommend that they jump over there and read what so many of you had to say. You talked about things I haven’t even thought about and hadn’t even heard of! So thank you!!!
As this little girl’s due date draws closer and closer, my husband and I just get more and more excited! We are just over the moon about it!
So… I would like to continue where we left off… and ask you some more things…
I grew up in a home library. Not kidding. My mother is a children’s book expert and so we were surrounded with books of all wonderful types. I remember the many, many children Christmas books that would be set out each year for us to sit by the tree and read… what wonderful memories!
So here is my question for you:
I would like to build my own personal children’s book library… and be sure that I will ask my mom… but I would like to ask you as well:
What are some of your favorite children’s books?
Both from your childhood, and for your children now?
I will start:
I remember sitting in my living room (on our yellow floral couch) so many times reading this book: The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
I also remember my little brother wanting to be read this e.v.e.r.y. s.i.n.g.l.e d.a.y. Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? I think he loved it because of the rhythm of the book. He could chime along as we would turn each page.
As for Christmas books… I love the The Tale of Three Trees
Should I also admit that I used to hoard my mother’s Martha Stewart magazines and arrange them month-by-month on my shelf? Is that normal? For a young girl?
Ok… I would LOVE to hear your list. Long or short.
