Every night after our baby girl’s bath I took her to the nursery and read stories before bedtime. It provided a lovely daddy-daughter time at the end of each day. Now that she’s 15 (yikes!) I see it inspired a love of books and reading in our daughter that is still part of her bedtime ritual. These are just a few she liked as a baby.
What are your favorite children’s books? Most that I read our baby were gifts from family and friends. I’ve noted several our daughter loved 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? Thanks so much for helping other parents find great books!
