Every night after our baby girl’s bath for nearly two years now I have taken her to her nursery and read her stories before bedtime. It provides a lovely daddy-daughter time at the end of each day, and I hope also will inspire a love of books and reading in our daughter. These are just a few she likes.
What are your favorite children’s books? Most that I read our baby were gifts from family and friends. I’ve noted several our baby likes are by the same authors, in particular Nancy Tafuri (“Goodnight My Duckling” & “The Donkey’s Christmas Song”) and Karen Katz (“Daddy Hugs” & “Where is my Bellybutton?”).
And of course I read her “classics” from my childhood by Doctor Seuss and Maurice Sendak. Do you have any recommendations for other parents? What were your favorites as a child? What do you or will you read your children?
