Our favs!!!

Show us your life--Favorite Children's Books.
So, my first favorite was a book that my brother, my sister and I read all the time when we were little. I can't find it anywhere these days. I have heard its out of print so if you have a copy...don't give it away!

My kids all love Brown Bear, Brown Bear
What Do You See?and Polar Bear, Polar Bear What Do You Hear? Tripp really loves them. He loves to say the name of the animal before you do and make their noise if he knows it.
I was never a big fan of this book as a preschool teacher, but my kids LOVE it and all of the other books in this little series. There are a few others that teach about opposites. They just crack up when they read these books about David.

This is a book my mom gave to Cash and Riley. It is one of my favorites. My mom is kind of the master at finding really good, cute books with special meanings. This is one of them! There is also a Christmas Cookies version centered around the holiday. They are really cute. These next two books are stories we had read at our children's Baptisms.
The Tale of Three Trees was the one we used for Cash and Riley.
We used The Oak Inside the Acorn for Tripp's Baptism.
And Here's to You is a story about celebrating diversity.
The Reese Family gave this book to Cash and Riley after their son, who was also a good friend of my husband, passed away in a car accident. In the book, it talks about "the bubble people" and Reese would have loved the Bubble People. And on the inside cover, Reese's mom writes "and how he would have loved you".
It is a special book to us.
I had to end with a few more childhood favorites of mine.
We read this book all the time.
This was one of my brother's favorites which I bought for my kids. They love it too!
I loved, and still love, this book. I still want to see the movie.

Now, I may have to put all my James Patterson favorites in another post! =)

Happy reading!
