International Children's Book Day

So, apparently today is International Children's Book Day! Books, as I've mentioned before, are probably my girls' favorite thing. They love to "read" and be read to more than anything. We probably have close to a hundred board addition to the thousand or so (probably more) other children's books I own for when they are older. I'd say we read around 15 books per day.

In honor of this day that celebrates children's books (which I love very much), I thought I'd share with you some of my girls' favorite books. There are so many, and no way I can possibly share all of their favorites, but here are a select few that come to mind when I think of their favorites. Maybe I'll list some others in a future "Friday Favorites" post.

Current favorite...Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr.

Eric Carle's ABC Book

Barnyard Dance by Sandra Boynton

Where is Baby's Bellybutton by Karen Katz

Big Red Barn and Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

What are some of your, or your children's, favorite books??


  1. all such wonderful books for little ones!

  2. This is inspiring...15 books a day! I need to start reading to my girls more often. I like that you're celebrating International Children's Book Day...I'll have to mark it on my calender. It could be a fun way to celebrate books with my girls. I want the Big Red Barn book, and Eric Carle's ABC!
