Raising two children and living with an English teacher has given me gray hair an opportunity to read a fair number of children’s books. I’m probably old school on this — but I can only stand to read books that appeal to me as well as my little monkeys.
Where the Wild Things Are — Everyone has a “Max” inside them, and can relate to our desire to let loose and run free with our “Wild Things.” Yet, at the end of the day, what we all want is to be loved, and be around those who love us.
Goodnight Moon — The perfect book for a parent attempting to get a wee-one to go to sleep.
Flotsam (Caldecott Medal Book) — This is an interesting book. Absolutely no words, but the pictures provide a fantastic narrative. An excellent book for kids who aren’t reading yet.
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?: 40th Anniversary Edition (Brown Bear and Friends) — This is another excellent book for young kids, combine this with changing up your voice to match the animals, quiz kids on the animals and colors, makes for some real quality time with your child.
No, David!— First of a series of books. Kids will empathize with the sometimes naughty David, as will parents.
