Brown Bear Brown Bear by Eric Carle is currently my 17-month-old’s favorite book. It has been such a sweet experience to see her enjoy this book. She is not saying many words at this age, but she loves to pick up this book and point to each animal. I believe this is a great book to introduce colors and animals, and I plan to purchase this book for our home library.

Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney is a beautifully illustrated story that takes you on one girl’s journey of seeing the world and discovering how to make the world more beautiful.

I can’t believe this is the first time I have read the classic story of Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans. Fearless, one-of-a-kind Madeline makes even a trip to the hospital look like fun.

Speaking of one-of-a-kind, The Story of Ferdinand is surely that. With the support of a loving mother, he’s not afraid of being a different bull. My husband said this book was one of his favorite books as a child, and therefore I like to read it to my girls.

I love how a good book can be passed down from generation to generation, unlike a most popular toys. We can all probably recall memories or feelings of enjoying our favorite childhood book. I hope my girls will remember our shared experience of reading books together.

For more inspiration on reading aloud plus great book recommendations, Sarah Mackenzie’s Read Aloud Revival is a must-have resource.
