Feature Follow is the day of the week that we get to know each other and make some new friends. This is graciously put on by our hosts Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Each week there is one blog featured by each host and a question to help us break the ice and open discussion. Since I am new to blogging I don't currently have a preference as to how you follow me. Feel free to follow through bloglovin, email, or GFC. I'm not picky just happy to have the company.
This weeks question is:
What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?
When I was a kid I really liked the Curious George books, but my favorite were the Berenstain Bears books. I loved these, and every time we would go to the book store I had to get a new one. My favorites of this series were:
My Wife and I read The Berenstain Bears' New Baby to my son when his sister was on the way this year. He is 3 and really loved the story and read it quite a bit till we had to take it back to the library. He is an amazing big brother to his 4 month old sister.
Having kids I have read a ton of picture books. Goodnight Moon and Guess How Much I love You are books I can recite in my sleep. I tried to read the Berenstain Bears books to my son since I liked them so much, but he really isn't a big fan of them.
My son really likes the Llama Llama series. These books are affectionately know around our house as the Llama Drama series. I have to admit that I really like them too. They are funny, and like most kids books they teach a lesson. My son even has a little plush toy of Llama Llama in his red pajamas. Here are my favorites that I have read:
I love reading to my son. We have read Sherlock Holmes, The Hobbit, and the first Lord of the Rings, but most of the time it is picture books. I know he doesn't understand the books I pick but when he gets older I will re-read The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. I think when he can understand the story better he will love these like I did as a kid. I also can't wait to read the Harry Potter series to him.
So what picture books do you like? Leave me a comment and we'll see if we like the same ones.
