A blogger I know stumbled upon a great list of the 100 Books Every Child Should Read Before Kindergarten.
Jackson loves to read -- or re, re, re as he says every five minutes -- so this is a great reference for us. I skimmed the list and we've read nine of the hundred books so far. So, we'll be busy these next three or four years.
I was happy to see some of our favorites on the list: Corduroy 40th Anniversary Edition, Where the Wild Things Are and The Little Red Hen (Little Golden Book).
But some others that I love were missing:
The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes (Sandpiper Books)
Inside, Outside, Upside Down (Bright & Early Board Books(TM)) (the first book I ever read, thanks to my Grandma Mills)
Little Golden Treasury: Scuffy the Tugboat, The Poky Little Puppy, Tawny Scrawny Lion, The Saggy Baggy Elephant
I guess everyone has their favorite children's books, whether they're a child or an adult. I can honestly say that some of my favorite books of all time are children's books It's hard to forget a story that made an impression on you as a child. And many of my favorite books are liked to fond memories, like learning to read with my grandmother.
