Corduroy, by Don Freeman

I have such fond childhood memories of that book being read to me and love reading it to DS now

Corduroy is a big favorite of mine too. Dumbo and Frosty the snowman. All three were books my grandparents had and I have such wonderful memories of them reading to me. One of my favorites that I remember my parents reading was The pokey little puppy.

This probably sounds crazy, but I don't remember a lot of specific books being read to me when I was a kid. A lot of my favorite books are ones I loved to read to my preschool class. Eric Carle books (Brown Bear, Brown Bear and The Very Hungry Caterpillar). I Love You, Stinkyface is a great one and the Kissing Hand.

The Secret Garden is one of my personal faves, but it's more appropriate for maybe 10 years and up.

We've read Brown Bear, Brown Bear so many times that I can do it in my sleep now, haha Smile I discovered recently the sequel Baby Bear, Baby Bear which is cute mix of animals.

Another favorite of DS's is Where is Baby's Belly Button by Karen Katz

There is another Brown Bear book. "Polar Bear Polar Bear, What do you hear." I thought about it for Christmas. Wink

The Secret Garden was the first chapter book my parents read me. Then the Ramon Quimby books and all before I was done with 1st grade. I couldn't read them obviously but I would read to them from picture books and then they would read me a chapter or two.

Ooh, I'll have to check out the polar bear version. I love, love Ramona Quimby books. I liked how she had a naughty streak to her but she wasn't malicious. I saw the movie recently and thought they did a good job of fitting in some of the story lines from the books. Charlotte's Web is another chapter book I remember having read to me.
