We LOVE reading around here. And since Read Across America is this week (March 2nd!), I thought I’d share some of our favorite books! So, here’s our list… ten books every kid should own (in no particular order):
The Lorax – We’re big fans of Dr. Seuss, but we just couldn’t live without this book in particular! We love that it’s written in Seuss’s famous style, but the moral of the story (take care of the Earth!) is just stellar!
An Awesome Book of Love – We actually own every one of Dallas Clayton’s book (and you should too)! This is one of the most creative and inspiring books… both the words and pictures are just awesome!
The Pout Pout Fish – We just LOVE this story… it’s got a great moral about choosing to see your circumstances in a positive light.
Zen Shorts – This is a great book about mindfulness for kids!
Llama Llama Time to Share – Every book in the Llama Llama series is just fantastic! And they all have great morals and help teach kids solid life lessons, like sharing.
You’re All My Favorites – This adorable story addresses the age old question of which kid (bear) is the favorite. And it does it in a great way!
The Giving Tree – This one’s been around since we were kids, but it is just a solid book about giving and taking.
The Rainbow Fish – This is a great story about learning to not be selfish.
The Kissing Hand – We love the idea of the kissing hand and this book is awesome for kids who have a little bit of separation anxiety.
But Not the Hippopotamus – A great short story about being left out. Everything Sandra Boynton writes is awesome!
