Childrens’ Books

My daughter, Nyaya, loves to read. Or, more accurately, she loves to be read to. I’m really happy about this fact, and I hope she continues to love books for a long time to come.

But it has meant we have gone through a lot of books. Here’s a list of which books have been, in some week or other, Nyaya’s favourite book. They’re arranged in rough order of when they were her favourite book, though my memory on this score is surely rather hazy.

If you have any suggestions for similar books, I’d love to hear from you either in comments, in email, or on Facebook.

    Hey Brian,
    I just ran across this post and unfortunately both my girls are asleep so I can’t look at their bookshelves, but here are a few recommendations off the top of my head:

    –Knuffle Bunny has two sequels. Knuffle Bunny Too was my younger daughter’s favorite for weeks. reading Knuffle Bunny Free may have caused it to get a little dusty in my house.

    –there are a bunch of good Mem Fox titles. try Where is the Green Sheep?

    –Sandra Boynton, especially the Good Night Book, Not the Hippopotamus, and Hippos Go Berserk.

    –if you can get someone to send them to you from Australia, all the Grug books.

    –I’m a Shark, by Bob Shea.

    –all of Roger Hargreaves’ Mr Men and Little Miss books, which I’m sure you remember from your youth.

    –If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

    Hopefully that’ll get you off to a good start….

    Mike
