Favorite Childrens Books

These are just a few of my favorite books for children. Most of them I remember from when I was growing up. We had lots of books and also visited the library quite often.

This book is out of print now and seems to be hard to find. It has been a long time since I read it, but from what I remember, it was a nice little story. :)

When I first saw this book I didn't really care fore the illustration style, but after reading it, it is a cute story about a little caterpillar who turns into a butterfly while learning some counting along a the way. Abby loves this one!

The Fire Cat Pickles the yellow cat with black spots :) I loved this one when I was little.

Buster Bear, Sammy Jay, Paddy the Beaver, Grandfather Frog, all characters in the animal stories by Thornton Burgress. When I was first learning to read, I would go and get these books from the library; I felt pretty important checking them out because they were chapter books :). Our library had the old nice hardbacks of the series.

Are You My Mother? This one is a favorite! I have a board book copy of it which leaves some parts out, but it's good for when the children are little.

Marcel the Pastry Chef What I remember most about this one is the wonderful illustrations! When I was younger we used to go to the library and bring stacks of books like this one home and my older sister would read them to us. :)

Good Night Little Bear I remember this book from when I was really little. It's funny, but the most vivid thing I remember about it is when the daddy bear is going to eat the piece of chocolate cake; I always thought it looked so good :). I haven't read or seen this book in years, but would love to get a copy.
Benjy and the Barking Bird We had this book when I was growing up. I spent some of my Swag bucks to buy myself a copy not too long ago.

Mommy Loves Her Bunny This is a cute little book, I love the illustrations and the words are sweet. I read this one to Abby just about every day before nap time.

What are some of your favorite children's books?
