Our family is full of lovers of literature. I will admit, it’s a forced value I’ve put upon our kids, especially.
Books are piled and spilling over every table shelf, and basket in our home and car. We do lots of reading with our kids!
But even if you aren’t a book enthusiast like me, there are a few “classics” that have stood the test of time for a reason. Adorable stories, word patterns to help development, illustrations that captivate small eyes, and lessons you can easily reference throughout the years.
There are many “missing” from this list, but bare bone, must reads, the delightful stories my kids grab for time and time again are below are as followed:
