25 favorite books for little ones

We love to read around here. Well...let me rephrase, the kids love for me to read TO them. I have been trying to get Austin to just sit and look at books solo for 2 years. He does in the car and at night time, but during the day it's me he wants. Oh well. My kids love books and that make me a happy mamma. We literally have books in every room of our house, including a basket in the car. Not only do we own an impressive collection, but we visit the library weekly and bring home a huge stack of "new" books. Lately we have been taking a handful of books along with a blanket outside and reading under the two giant trees in our front yard. We live on a busy road and there is trucking business next door, so there are dump trucks, school buses, cement mixers, etc. going by all day. The one bright side of having a less than desirable busy road so close. Anyway, I thought I would share a list of our favorite books. If you do not have these in your collection, I highly recommend you seek them out. The best place I have found for books are children's consignment sales, church rummage sales, ebay, and one Maryland favorite, The Key School Book Festival. Go grab a good book and read with your cuddle bug today.
