I’m starting a new series of posts which feature our favorite children’s picture books. They usually aren’t long or complex enough to warrant an entire blog post, but if I give you a batch of four, it makes it a bit more worthwhile. As you can see, our books are well-loved. 😉
Baby Food by Saxton Freymann & Joost Elffers
I remember back when this book first came out, and I was so impressed by it. I loved the adorable animals made from fruits and vegetables! The text is very simple, but the authors’ creativity in assembling recognizable animals from food is really impressive. My kids love this book and enjoy reciting the different foods that the animals are made from.
One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss
Who hasn’t heard of this book? It’s a classic that I grew up with, and now my kids are enjoying it, too. The sing-song rhyme is very catchy and the illustrations are wonderfully whimsical. This book explores many animals from the imaginary world of Dr. Seuss.
The Day the Goose Got Loose by Reeve Lindbergh
I love the illustrations of Steven Kellogg–they practically make this book! This is a story about a goose who gets loose and causes mayhem on the farm. The antics are hilarious and we laugh every time we read it.
Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney
This is one of those feel-good bedtime stories. Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare compete to see who loves the other more. No matter how hard he tries, Little Hare is outdone by Big Hare in his exclamations of love. It’s a cute and heartwarming story.
