Current favorite reads

“A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest.” ― C.S. Lewis

These are Brooks' favorite reads as of late, and they put a smile on my face too. :) We turn each of their pages at least two times a day...at the counter while he eats his oatmeal for breakfast, in my and Daddy's lap by his crib before nap and bed time, and plenty of snuggle sessions in between. I cherish the time spent reading with him. With Christmas around the corner I'm looking for some good books that he, and Ava, will enjoy. I'd love some good children's books recommendations! Beautiful illustrations, or charming stories...good children's books are priceless.  But because money definitely doesn't grow on trees, I always make sure to check the book sections at thrifts stores. We've found some gems that way. And I just found this site that had 5 of those favorite reads for great prices, and no shipping! Love their motto: Spend less. Read more. :)

So, what are some books you enjoyed growing up?
Or if you have littles, what are books that make them light up?
Do share.

I was going to saw Love You Forever but I see you already have that, I sob, like uncontrollably every time I read that to my kids! Guess How Much I Love is a cute one!

I'm sure you already have this one, but "Oh the Places You'll Go" is our all time favorite. Caleb quotes it all the time when applying it to real life. Like when he's alone, he said "alone is something I'll be quite a lot". When he quotes the book, it melts my heart!

There are so many goodies! I Believe in You by Marianne Richmond. Jiggle, Wiggle, Prance. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is cute & fun alphabet learning. God Gave us you is so sweet. The Monster at the End of this Book was one of my Sesame Street favs growing up & now I love reading it to my daughter. Tickle Monster & Giggle Monster books are 2 of our most fun.

We love reading at our house too!

you are special will always be one of my favorite books. when your little girl gets a little older you should get her daughter of a king by rachel ann nunes.
