children's books.

Michael Recycle $11.50

Tea for Ruby $11.50

I find Christmas to be the perfect time to add to our book collection. These are two I've been eying for this year, although I'd love your suggestions for some tried and true childrens' books.


  1. Joseph Had a Little Overcoat. The Story About Ping. Parts. Chicka CHicka Boom Boom. A is For America. Where the WIld Things Are. THe Giant Jam Sandwich. These are all big hits with our toddler.

  2. I love the Parts books. They are great. I am excited to check out the others!

  3. Noisy Nora. Owl and the Pussycat. The Clown of God. Actually, anything by Tomie dePaulo.

  4. I've been "eyeing" that Michael Recycle book too! It looks like it has fantastic illustrations and a very positive message about taking care of our world.

    Other books you might want to check out...
    * Good Night Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
    * Only You by Robin Cruise

  5. Oh, I loved the Giant Jam Sandwich as a kid. I totally forgot about it until I read what KJ posted.

    My 16-month-old loves anything by Sandra Boyton, Eric Carle and Karen Katz. She also loves Is Your Mama a Llama and I Love You Through and Through.

    Other personal faves include Harold and the Purple Crayon, Blueberries for Sal, the Giving Tree...

  6. We have Michael Recycle and it's a lot of fun. The text is great and the illustrations are even better - lots to discuss.

    We're also fans of Little Pea and Little Hoot. And anything by Mo Willems.

  7. check out author Sean Bryan. We love his books.

    a boy and his bunny
    a bear and his boy

    and Leo Lionni. We also love his books.

    An Extraordinary Egg
    Alexander and the Wind-up Mouse

  8. We love anything by Sandra Boynton- including the music! We are also big fan of Slinki Malinki, Skippyjon Jones, and the Stinkyface series. And there is always Peaceful Piggy Meditation and Yoga. (We are HUGE readers in this house!)

  9. I just ordered the new version of Hansel and Gretal - Cynthia Rylant. Can't wait to receive it.

  10. Love that Michael Recycle - I'm gonna have to buy that for my school!
