Great Children's Books

This post may contain affiliate links.
Okay people. Here is my attempt to make a list of great books. Please feel free to add to it! This is just a list. Some of these books represent a great author (like Karen Katz and Sandra Boynton) and some represent a great series (Clifford the Big Red Dog and Curious George). This is a list of books my kids love and books y'all have recommended to me. I am sure I missed many (there are way too many out there!). So I will add to this as I remember and as you share your favorites.

Two books I have to add: my FAVORITE of all time: Enemy Pie by Derek Munson (so cute in helping kids overcome "enemies"); the second is just so funny: Parts by Ted Arnold. Those are two I love! Thanks for the post--reading and books are so fun!

Any books by Mem Fox, Dr. Seuss, A.A. Milne and Beatrix Potter are great!

I love books published by Usborne books. My friend sells their books and my son favors all of the books I have bought from her.

I look forward to checking out some of these books that we haven't read yet. I've been really impressed with these three lately: Mama Cat by Denise Fleming, Three Little Kittens by Paul Galdone, and How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World.

Boyton has sing-along books and CDs that are great. Philadelphia Chickens and Rhinoceros Tap are particularly great.

I wasn't sure where to leave this comment...sorry. But my son is almost 3 1/2 months and doesn pretty well with sleeping through the night. I pump bottles for him to feed at 7 and again at 10/10:30 just so I know he is getting enough food. This has seemed to help him sleep better through the night. I would like for his waketime to be anywhere between 7 and 7:30 am. He ALWAYS wakes up at different times in the middle of the night with a wet diaper. The times are changing every week. Sometimes 1am, sometimes 5:30. When he wakes at 5:30 he sometimes seems like he is ready to eat! I'm not quite sure what to do b/c I've been trying to figure out when to drop the dream feed (which I just read that post) and also changing his 3-3 1/2 hour schedule to four hours. Any suggestions or advice would be so great. I feel like we've hit a rock.

I just had to add that he isn't going througha growth spurt...we just went through that. No fun! He is waking up sometimes 4 times in a night whether he is wet or not. I am back to feeling exhausted.

Thanks everyone for your additions!

Jessica and Michael,

I would try a larger diaper at night. So if he wears 2 in the day, try 3 at night. Or you can try huggies overnights diapers, I hear good things about those.

Once you get that changed, you will be better able to evaluate if he is hungry in the night or not. But I wouldn't drop the dreamfeed while he is still waking in the night. If you aren't changing his diaper at the dreamfeed, you might want to.

I am looking for a post where you made a recommendation for a children's Bible, but haven't been able to find it. Maybe I read it somewhere else, but I think it was here. Could you tell me which one you have that you really like? Thanks so much for your blog - I really enjoy it :)

Plowmanators said...

Bobbie, that wasn't me. That was a reader. It was in the post where I asked readers what their favorite children's books were. I believe that was in November or December of last year (2009).

I have a few, but not one that I just LOVE.
