Books play such a huge role in our family, as I mentioned earlier this week when I shared about how my kids and I made book donation totes to deliver to those in need. Reading is something I have done with all four of my children since they were tiny infants, as I feel strongly that establishing a love of reading early on is one of the most precious gifts you can give a child. Over the years, we have read hundreds of books, but there have been a dozen or so that have emerged as our all-time favorites. Today I thought I’d share our list of some of our favorite books so that you can look into adding them to your home library or borrowing them from your local library to enjoy with your own children!
This was the very first book I read consistently to baby Jack, so many times, in fact, that we just had to replace our beloved old book with a new copy after it literally fell apart. I love this story for its repetitive simplicity that allows children to “read” along, and Eric Carle’s vibrant illustrations are second to none.
