It's National Reading Day! I dug out an old post with one of my family's favorite books, The Wild Baby Book. I've read it so many times that I can do most of it by heart.
I think one of the reasons I made Pip (Carry Her Heart) a children's book author is that I so strongly believe in the importance of reading to children. For years, like Pip, I was a Kindergarten Book Lady. I came in once a week and read and sang song, from Grey Squirrel to Boa Constrictor.
Today I thought we could share our favorite children's books.
Here are a few of mine:
Oh, and my favorite first chapter book...Wolf Story!
Most of these are excellent stories that engage the children. They can shout about rain making applesauce, or understand why a book with no pictures makes grownups say ridiculous things. They become participants. And learning to engage with a book...well, that's what it's all about!
