Books to Buy my Kids…as Soon as I Can!

So, I take a ton of books out of the library for the kids. Nix especially, ‘cause he just loves having us read to him! So, I have a long list of books that I just HAVE to get them… when I have some extra cash. He’s the list:

1. The Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog by Mo Willems

2. A Girl and Her Gator by Sean Bryan

3. A Boy and His Bunny by Sean Bryan

4. Thank You Bear

5. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr.

6. If You Give a Pig a Party by Laura Numeroff

7. Rain

8. Leaves by David Ezra Stein

9. Don’t Worry Bear (same author as Thank You Bear)

10. Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed by Mo Willems

I can’t for the life of me remember who wrote a couple of these books… I’ll have to look them up. But, if you’ve got young kids, you should check these books out. They’re awesome!

I love the If you give a (blank) a (blank) books. We actually had to use one of those books and create a dramatic performance for one of my teaching classes. They are too cute. Also, if you can find Melanie Mouses Moving Day. It is old. My mom read it to me before we moved. Not that you are doing that, but the illustrations are beautiful!
