I started with our individual favorites last week (here), so this time around I’m listing a few more that we all enjoy too much to not be included.
Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett – an adorable book about a little girl who brightens up her corner of the world by knitting brightly colored sweaters for everyone she meets, including animals (which is Mads favorite part, of course).
I especially love how she covers the buildings with her yarn creations. Seriously cute stuff.
Stars by Mary Lyn Ray – a book about stars, and where you can find them in the world around you.
For me, the illustrations make this book. We just recently discovered it, but since the girls have asked me to read it multiple times a day I have a feeling it’s going to be another one of those library books we have at our home more often than not.
The entire If You Give A Moose a Muffin/Pig a Pancake/Cat a Cupcake series by Laura Numeroff
Finally, even though my girls have outgrown board books, honorable mention goes to our favorite author from their baby days, Sandra Boynton. We were especially fond of But Not The Hippopotamus and the Pookie books. I’ve found myself completely unable to give those titles away with the rest of our baby books so I have them stowed away in a box labeled “sentimental fool.” 😉
Anybody else keep your children’s outgrown books? Please tell me I don’t belong on Hoarders.
