Children's Books You'll Want to Read to Your Kids

One of the memories I most enjoyed making with my kids is when they would climb up on my lap in the rocking chair, and I would read to them. They had their favorites. They had some they didn't like. But there were a few that were as much fun to read as they were for the kids to listen. Below I've listed some suggestions. Many of these authors have additional books, you'll want to check out. Click the Amazon links below and start a "Wish List" of some of these great titles. Add others that spark your interest. Or make a list of books to check out from your local library.
