Reading is my favorite hobby, and so far, my kids are really loving it, too. We read LOTS of kids books in this house (My guess would be a minimum of ten per day). We read most books over and over again. Some are certainly more preferable to me than others. I thought I'd write a post about my 5 favorite kids books in hopes of generating some new ideas for favorite books! I can't promise these are my absolute favorites, but they are up there for sure, so in no particular order:
1. Pout Pout Fish
I love Pout Pout Fish. There are several great books in the series, but the original is my favorite. It's a cute story about changing your attitude (which is a necessary daily conversation in a house full of toddlers!!) In fact, 'bluuub' has become a colloquial method of expressing feelings in our house!
2. Good Night, Good Night, Construction Site.
I work on a construction site, so I wasn't surprised when I received two very special versions of this book from friends! (The board book version with a stuffie from Jen and a SIGNED copy from Sara!!) But I haven't enjoyed all of the construction books we've read. This one has a beautiful and relaxing cadence, lovely artwork and adorable characters. It's a nightly favorite of Alex!
3. Little Blue Truck
A very cute reminder about friendship. It's filled with animals sounds so it's been a big hit for a while here. I love books with a message, and this one has several.
4. Snuggle Up Sleepy Ones
This was previously Colin's night time book, and we read it twice a day for several years. It's now a struggle to convince him to let me read it, but it remains a favorite! Cute pictures of animals settling in for the evening. (Although you do have to get past a page where Roar rhymes with paws)
5. I love you as Much
Alex's night time book! This is a cute night time story about all of the mommy animals saying I love you to the baby animals. "I love you as much as a mother can love."
