One of my favorite parts of motherhood is getting to enjoy picture books with my children. I’ve been collecting good ones since before I had kids, and have far too many now but just can’t stop.
Here are some of my all-time favorites.
Do’s and Don’ts, by Todd Parr (totally silly and colorful fun!)
Miss Rumphius, by Barbara Cooney (this book sums up my biggest goal in life)
There’s a Nightmare in My Closet, by Mercer Mayer
But Not the Hippopotamus, by Sandra Boynton (and just about anything else by Boynton!)
Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, by Judith Viorst
More, More, More! Said the Baby, by Vera B. Williams
Kiss the Cow, by Phyllis Root
Please, Baby, Please, by Spike and Tonya Lee
Big Momma Makes the World, by Phyllis Root
The Napping House, by Audrey Wood
Weird Parents, also by Audrey Wood
I could go on, but there’s a start!
