Kids' Books that Rock.


My bag is not packed. There is no mattress in the crib. I only have 2 bottles. But damn it, the library is stocked. This week I'm obsessing about having all of the books I loved as a little kid on the shelves so we can read them to Baby B. I was looking at a bunch online today at work and my co-worker, who is my age, and I kept exclaiming over and over about the same books we loved. Here's a small taste of some of my favorites:

1. Sylvester and the Magic Pebble



2. Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel



3. Blueberries for Sal



4. Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day



5. The Amazing Bone




The list goes on and on! I'm so excited to read these again!

What were some of your favorite books as a kid??
