Children's Books

My co-worker, Kern, asked me a little while ago about my favorite children's books. I had to think about that for a minute. I have read a lot of children's books and I do have favorites, but they are pretty classic and not exactly what she was looking for.

My Grandmother used to read "Goodnight Moon" to me when I was little. I really love this one.

Curious George is another favorite. I don't know what it is about that little monkey that gets me so much, but he sure does get me. Ben Garcia has this little face that he makes that looks just like Curious George. So cute.

I am also a HUGE fan of anything by Beatrix Potter. Hunka-Munka was a personal favorite of mine, as well as my siblings. It was really just too much fun to say Hunka-Munka.

Also, a new favorite is Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse. I first heard of this when the Springer did the stage production two summers ago.

Another one that I fell in love with, although I was already in love with this one and I was just re-introduced to this one, is "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie" series. The Springer did "If you Give a Pig a Party" this past summer and it was just too cute!

Just a small reading list for the younger readers. SJC, take note, ok?

Sweet. I can recite "Goodnight Moon" by heart already.

Hannah mostly just nom's it, though. I need to buy a un-chewed copy.

Haha. There are books like that at our house too!

Who is John Deru...and why do I need to click "here?"

Also I would like to note that Hunka-Munka is the term i use for cute guys in the drive thru as well as the greedy, poverty stricken, mouse driven to steal for the rich 1% of the town by the increase in taxes and gas prices thrust upon her by an unjust government...

Wow, I think I got carried away...
