George has some good books that my little ones are loving these days. They have the most beautiful illustrations.<br /><br />I think Eric Carle&#39;s Mister Seahorse and House for Hermit Crab are just fascinating...Winnie-the-Pooh and House at Pooh Corner are probably my all time favorites! <br /><br />Margaret Wise Brown&#39;s BIg Red Barn has been one of my favorites to read to my babies for some reason. I just love that one. I&#39;ll check out Kate and the Beanstalk. Looks cute!Mary####noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8341689034619131983.post-77090145266367048082010-05-27T22:15:29.870-05:002010-05-27T22:15:29.870-05:00This is fantastic!

I also love the &quot;If You Give a Mouse a Cookie...&quot; and the others similar to it. And my personal favorite was The Little Engine that Could. Oh, how I miss reading to my children. Those were good times.Kay @ Off the Beaten Path####noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8341689034619131983.post-13778286994300268752010-05-25T15:47:04.594-05:002010-05-25T15:47:04.594-05:00Katherine loved to be read to (and still does).

Did you know that there is a wonderful website by the author of LYF? #### />I had high hopes that by me being an avid reader, that Katherine too would share my joy of books, but so far she hasn&#39;t picked that up....yet.Lisa Lnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8341689034619131983.post-35960393203763905502010-05-25T11:15:54.100-05:002010-05-25T11:15:54.100-05:00Yes, H, I am totally convinced that reading to kid...Yes, H, I am totally convinced that reading to kids when they&#39;re young does help foster a love for books later in life. It&#39;s worked for me! One of mine doesn&#39;t LOVE to read, but she still picks up books for pleasure every now and then. The other two are voracious. I love it!Shelly @ Life on the Wild Side####noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8341689034619131983.post-60584726089902409202010-05-25T10:53:07.243-05:002010-05-25T10:53:07.243-05:00Thanks!

Enjoying a lot of Sandra Boynton (she&#39;s new), but also the classics like Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny. I do have You Are Special. I bought it for my future child about three years ago when I first saw it. The others I have never seen. Did reading to your girls help them love reading as much as you do? <br /><br />-HAnonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8341689034619131983.post-4224554446698952732010-05-25T06:51:30.379-05:002010-05-25T06:51:30.379-05:00Well, I&#39;ve already admitted that Caroline is &...Well, I&#39;ve already admitted that Caroline is &quot;into&quot; Dick &amp; Jane books. And, I love that.<br /><br />But, one of our favorites is &quot;Time for Bed&quot; by Mem Fox. Great cadence, and beautiful illustrations!!Angie####noreply@blogger.com
