We live Max Lucados children’s books! Specifically “You are Special”.The cute story of the Wemmicks perfectly delivers a message that is wonderful for kids and parents!
Love love Go Dogs Go! Loved having it read to me when I was little and now love reading it to my boys.
We love the Pigeon books by Mo Willems!
I love “The Giving Tree.” 🙂
LIKE SHE SAID! “The Giving Tree” is quite possibly one of the top three children’s books to date. If not THE top. IMHO.
The House at Pooh Corner by AA Milne
For some of our older (4th-7th gr or so) kids- love the Dead City Trilogy, any of the James Patterson YA novels, Neptune Project and Challenge…. These are high interest and quick moving to keep the older reader wanting more.
All of Kevin Henkes’ books are great and some can be started as early as age 4 in my opinion.
Our favorite book at the moment is, A Sick Day for Amos McGee by Philip C. Stead
Love this list! My daughter’s favorites change often, but she consistently loves Goodnight Moon!
We love if you Make a moose a muffin
Our little ones love Pete the Cat and anything Dr. Seuss especially Wacky Wednesday and Fred and Ted.
My favorite childhood book was I love you forever, but my daughters favorite at the moment is Duckling gets a cookie by Mo Willems. All the Mo Willems books are great for learning readers and help with learning their sight words.
My favourite slightly older kid book was Emily of New Moon.
