More classic picture books for children! I loved reading about some of your favorites in the first post!
Henry the Explorer by Mark Taylor
The illustrations so perfectly match the story.
One Morning in Maine by Robert McCloskey
One of the first books I remember reading and rereading.
The Happy Lion by Louise Fatio
Some of the sequels are even better. I love The Happy Lion Roars!
My daughter actually had a "Ferdinand" experience of sitting on a bee this summer!
Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans
I never loved the illustrations of the Madeline books - but the books are a classic favorite in our house.
Amos and Boris by William Steig
Steig's imagination cranks out many crazy but favorite stories.
Billy and Blaze by C. W. Anderson
Wonder how many times my brothers borrowed the Billy and Blaze books out of the library?
Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina
Don't read this book if you don't want to hear your pre-schoolers walk around imitating the peddler!
Just Me by Marie Hall Ets
Somehow this book captures a glimpse of childhood imagination.
The Biggest Bear by Lyn Ward
What can I say...it is another well worn favorite.
Millions of Cats by Wanda Gag
Tickles my children's funny bone.
The Moon Jumpers by Janice May Udry
This author must know children in summertime.
If your day is hazy and cool like mine...find a child and curl up together to read a book. Think I'll go take my own advice!
