Favorite Books.

As most of you know, I'm an elementary school teacher.  I love books.  I love grown up books and kid books.

Today, I'm listing just a sampling of my favorite children's books, but I'm also asking for you to share your favorites in either the comments here or on Facebook.  As I add to my library, I'm always on the lookout for new favorites.

Here are the current favorites, and please note, I'm not an Amazon affiliate and I get nothing from these links.  I just love good summer reading!

Ellie's Favorite Books.*

Princess Super Kitty
Giraffes Can't Dance
Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?

* Wow.  Ellie's godparents have good taste.  Many of these were gifts from them!

What are your favorites?
Pin It!


  1. We love books! Some of our favorites through the years have been Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Dinosaurumpus, anything by Eric Carle (especially Here are My Hands and From Head to Toe) or Sandra Boynton.

  2. We just got Arlo Needs Glasses today in the mail thanks to your earlier suggestion. It is SO cute! I have no idea if this will help with the wearing of glasses but we will certainly enjoy reading it! Some of our favorites are the Pete the Cat books (especially I Love my White Shoes) and the Elephant and Piggie series (especially We are in a Book and Pigs Make me Sneeze). Other favorites (past and present) are Pouch!, Bear Wants More, Little Blue Truck and Snuggle Puppy.

  3. We keep reading and reading and reading Pinkalicious. There's also a cute book out there called Good News Bad News that we look at a lot and make up our own creative stories to go with it.
