I LOVE the Biggest Bear. My Mom used to read it to me when I was little.

I remember reading Mrs. Nelson is missing as a kid, good book.

Emily Larkin said...

Good List! Some of my favorites. I took Max to the library on Wed and he picked out his first book! I am so excited.

Leah picks out all of her own books as well. It's kinda annoying. She insisted on getting a book about film editing. Strange...I'm glad to hear lots of you like some of the same books as me.

The Napping House,Quick as a Cricket and my favorite The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and THE BIG HUNGRY BEAR

The Red Ripe Strawberry, and THE BIG HUNGRY BEAR...we just finished reading that book last week. The kids loved it! Also, I'm going to check out some of those other books at the library. Thanks!

Oh! There are so many that I love!

Caps For Sale, The Giving Tree, and Go Away Big Green Monster are favorites of mine. I also love Guess How Much I Love You because it is about a Father/Child relationship, and most books focus on Mother/Child.

We went to the library this afternoon, and I discovered Sun Bread. If you haven't read it before, you should check it out. There's a recipe for the bread on the back and it is totally something I could see you doing with your kids. You'd love it.
