Little readers

We're very happy that the boys seem to love reading as much as we do. They love to 'read' on their own or ask us to read to them. And they definitely have favorite books. It probably helps that they see us read all the time. Books are very important to both of us.

Wil loves:
Sam loves: 
I know they have lots more. I highly recommend picking up some of Karen Beaumont's books. They are extremely entertaining. "Doggone Dogs" is hysterical (and teaches counting). Another of hers that we have and enjoy is "I Like Myself". It has a message that we all could learn from. I'd really like to pick up more of her work. Eric Carle, of course, is excellent. Along with getting more of his books, I want to visit the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA. 

Some of our favorite authors that we are introducing the boys to include Dr. Seuss, Mercer Mayer, Richard Scarry, Jean and Laurent de Brunhoff (Babar), Corduroy by Don Freeman. 

What are your favorite children's books/authors?
