GOOD Children’s Books

Let’s face it folks, some children’s books are just duds.  Nobody, young or old, likes a book full of wistful haikus about grass.  I’m not making that example up – we unknowingly checked that book out from the library.  Seriously, how did that get published?

We’re always looking for good books in this house.  We read TONS of books to Kiki and Hubby and I truly appreciate a well-written children’s book.  Clever writing, funny plots, solid rhyming scheme – those are the qualities we look for in a children’s book.

Just in time for Christmas, I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite kids’ books.  These are stories that make me laugh out loud or just have a really good message.  These are books I can read over and over and still not get tired of them.  Wrap one up under your tree and your whole family will enjoy story time.

One thought on “GOOD Children’s Books

  1. This is awesome. I like anything by Kevin Henkes. Jim loves Frog and Toad. I love Good Night Moon (but no one else does). The Knuffle Bunny series literally makes me cry. Curious George is solid.
