Happy Sunday to y’all!
I am currently visiting family, celebrating my nephew’s FIRST birthday! (Still wondering how a year has gone by already!) As reading is my superpower, I am of course the aunt who buys books as presents. Much to my delight, my nephew already loves being read to and lets his parents know when it’s time for a book. (Be still my bookish heart!)
Anyway… I thought today on the Sunday Book Club, we’d talk about your favorite picture books for kiddos.
I bought him two this time. One, an enduring favorite of mine that I discovered during my kiddy lit class in college. Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathmann, to be precise. The other is one that someone recommended during a recent Top Ten Tuesday post. (I can’t remember who or I’d give proper credit. If it was you, holler!) Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri.
Oh. My. Goodness. That book, y’all. HILARIOUS. It may be a little old yet for my nephew, but my husband (who is about 39 years past his first birthday) literally guffawed the entire time I was doing a test-read of the book after it arrived. So… suffice it to say, if Ben doesn’t like Dragons Love Tacos, I’m sure Eric will gladly take it off his hands 🙂
Ok – your turn. What are some of your fave picture books for kids? Old faves? New faves? Let me know! I’m making a list!
