The Wild Christmas Reindeer - Jan Brett
My absolute favorite children's storybook of all time. The story is funny and touching, and the illustrations are so beautiful they still take my breath away.
Walter the Lazy Mouse - Cyndy Szekeres,Marjorie Flack
Probably my second favorite book from my childhood. It is a bit long for very young children; it has chapters. However, the story is so simple and sweet that I loved it even when I was so young that I had to have someone else read it to me, one chapter every night.
The Moon Singer - Clyde Robert Bulla
Not one of my greatest favorites when I was little, but this book has grown to be one of my inspirations in life. The art style of the illustrations is so beautiful, and the story is as lovely as it is unconventional for children's book fare.
Each Peach Pear Plum (Viking Kestrel Picture Books)... - Janet Ahlberg,Allan Ahlberg
I don't technically own this book, but my sisters and I shared it between the three of us when we were small. We can still rattle off the entirety of the rhyming story together.
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? - Delsohn,Bill, Jr. Martin
Another one that I don't technically own myself. "Polar Bear, Polar Bear" (below) was mine, "Brown Bear" was my little brother's, but when it was bed time, our dad would read the books back-to-back, mine for me and this one for him.
Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear? (Picture Puffin)... - Eric Carle_II
Abigail's Garden: 2 - Helen Williams
I think it's pretty self-explanatory why my grandparents bought this for me: my name is already on the book! (My name is actually Abigail Pearl, just like my screen name. Unimaginative, I know) This was my first introduction to great poetry, and I think it must have shaped me in unconscious ways.
Abigail's Alphabet - J.J. Smith-Moore
Once again, the title is pretty self-explanatory. What's a more fun way to learn the ABC's than from a little girl who shares your name (and strangely resembles you a little bit)? The fact that she had a pet armadillo and had lots of zany adventures helped, too.
I started reading at four, but even before then I had favorite books that were read to me, by my daddy and my grandpa. This is a list of books that were my favorites then and still are now, just for nostalgia's sake.
