    Oh, this is so fun! I read Goodnight Moon to my kids from birth on up to about six years old, I can even say it from memory while composing a grocery list in my head, ha. Reading and collecting fave books for your baby is the best, one of my favorites is "Love You Forever", I dare you to not cry while reading it;)

    Oh boy (or girl as the case may be). I took such delight in picking books for each of my children's library. I am the original bookworm. I couldn't wait to impart my love of reading to my children. I cherished the time spent at the library with them, story times, watching them develop their own book list and of course the first time they read aloud in the halting staccato recitation. I was more tickled to hear this than to hear their first word. My children were encouraged to read, nurtured with reading, and educated by print. They have had a college level reading ability since they were in Second Grade. Other parents wonder what my secret is. It is not a secret, read, read read and read some more with them. Explore, learn and cultivate. Be a reader too. My kids know I would rather read than watch TV. There is nothing they cannot learn if they know how to read. I love your choices, especially Sidney Sheldon. When the children were babies, sometimes I even read to them what I was reading personally. They didn't know what I was saying. They just knew that they were next to me being cuddled and talked too. A book that is always a hit and is my childhood favorite is Alexander and The No Good HORRIBLE VERY BAD DAY book. I especially suggest ELLA SARA GETS DRESSED by Margaret Chodos-Irvine, I am a little prejudiced she is my cousin, but it is a Caldecutt Medal Winner and was voted favorite book by the children in my literacy promotion charity group. Also, a series of books by David Shannon, called David. They are simple books made with illustrations from the author he drew as a child. I haven't found one child who doesn't love them. Have a wonderful time reading with your child. It is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give.

    Chelsea I love your blog! SO excited I just found it and I can't wait to follow along your adventures and your newest adventure with your baby boy!! (Congrats!) Ahhh so fun! These books are so great, I remember when I was little I was obsessed with The Rainbow Fish, Corduroy, Goodnight Moon and The Giving Tree. Such awesome books! Also, another good book that I loved as a child was Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. It's perfect for learning the alphabet šŸ™‚

    There's a few books on your list that I've never heard of but most of them bring back so many happy childhood memories. I want to start collecting these for my own library šŸ™‚ If you have any big flea markets near where you live sometimes those are great places to find old books!

    Love these books! My FAVORITE children's book is The Little Mouse, the Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear (https://www.amazon.com/dp/0859536599/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_1nC7vbTHVMG1R ) nobody has ever heard of it, but I promise it is GREAT (and only $5 on Amazon!)

    GREAT books! And? Consider the Little Blue Truck series. And the Gruffalo (series)! My dude LOVES those. (Well. Okay. Consider them if you're cool to read them ten times a day when your Little is old enough to ask for them. šŸ™‚ )

  11. Life with Lolo

    Goodnight Moon is my absolute favorite! You have so many good ones here though! I'd add "Love You Forever," "Minou" (I was a cat lover though) and "Are You My Mother?"

    Great books!!! Any book by Sandra Boynton is adorable and fun for toddlers (fun and easy to sing along or make hand gestures for the stories). My favorites are "The Going To Bed Book" and "Barnyard Dance". Mo Willems has a hilarious series of books about a quirky and grumpy pigeon that's hilarious ("Don't Let The Pigeon Ride The Bus" and "Pigeon Finds A Hot Dog" are my favorites.

    I love ALL of these books (except wizard of oz because they've always freaked me out, lol!!) but I can't wait to get these all for our little bean. My brother and I had them all too and loved them so much!
