It's Friday again, and I said I was starting a tradition (so I guess that means I have to do it more than the one time). This has been a busy week, working extra babysitting, and its not over yet so I don't have too many clever anecdotes to post about. But I am excited to share my true love, books! I have been geeking out to literature since I learned how to read! I once spent an entire summer reading books in my tree house! No time for friends, swimming, well social interaction of any kind when you have an entire series of Babysitters Club books to read! You know you loved them! My dream was to have my own babysitters club...but not enough friends (but I always had those books). Now I am trying to instill this love of books in my daughter we have a weekly visit to the library and we read all day long! Here are a few of our favorites!
My favorite books for babies:
1. Fifteen Animals by Sandra Boynton (Although your little on will be calling everyone Bob for a long time)
2. Moo, Baa, Lalala by Sandra Boynton (Her books are hilarious, and this was the first book my girl could recite with me)
3. I Hear Two Birds by Kathy Panton (Beautiful collages, a great counting book. So pretty I want to rip out some of the picture to hang on my wall!)
4. Pig Takes a Bath written by Michael Dahl, illustrated by Oriol Vidal (Great bath time book, and that pig is so silly he always makes my girl laugh)
5. Peekaboo Sleepy Baby by Joanna Bicknell (A cute lift the flap book where babies get to look at other babies! We know they all love that. We read it every night before bed.)
6. Baby Einstein First Alphabet (Great photographs and pictures, my girl loves to point to all of them and I tell her what it is! I can see her cute little brain learning as we do this!!!)
7. Princess Baby by Karen Katz (I may love this one more than my daughter, but it has cute pictures and every adorable pet name that a parent may call their little one)!
8. Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Bill Martin Jr. and illustrated by Eric Carle (A Classic that it full of awesome animal pictures and rhythmic repition)
9. Peek a Moo by Marie Torres Cimarusti Illustrated by Stephanie Peterson (It was adorable to see my daughter get so excited to see what was behind those flaps)!
10. Balls by John E. Barrett, and Illustrated by Mary Beth Nelson (What can I say her two favorite things are Elmo and balls).
