I thought I’d share some books that we love reading but also have fantastic art work. You know, like all the Nancy Tillman books.
Room on the Broom: we got this one for Halloween and it’s so fun to read but also the pictures are great! Highly recommend.
The Wonderful Things You Will Be: this would be a great baby shower or first birthday gift. We love flipping through the pictures and the words are just so wonderful to read to a little one.
I love you, Stinky Face: this is probably one of the most requested to be read at bed time at our house. And I don’t mind one bit because I get to tell my guy how much I love him and would love him no matter what.
Where the Wild Things Are: another fave in our house and not only are the pictures fantastic, it really helps kids see how imagination can work.
On the Night You Were Born and I’d Know You Anywhere My Love are such sweet stories for littles to know how special and loved they are. My favorite artwork for sure!
The Giving Tree is so simple but memorable. L loves to read this one and even takes it to Nana and Granddad’s for them to read. I loved Shel Silverstein as a kid so this warms my heart.
Harry the Dirty Dog is another one with simple drawings but such a cute book. It’s in the nighttime rotation at least once a week.
Last Stop on Market Street is a powerful story (though being honest, my child was most drawn to the bus on the cover) and has beautiful artwork throughout. I love working “real” stories in the mix as much as books like the Gruffalo.
This is How We Do It is a gorgeous book full of information on how things get done around the world. Obviously our favorites are seeing all the vehicles but it’s a great way to learn and see differences in the world.
The True Story of the Three Little Pigs is a fun one but maybe a little old for 3. I tend to change some of the words to make it less mean/scary but L really enjoys it so we keep it in the rotation.
The Wonderful Egg is such a beautiful book and has taught our boy lots of dinosaur names.
We don’t choose our books based on the artwork alone but it makes me happy when they’re filled with pretty pictures to go along with a great story. These are some of our current faves. Any you recommend adding into our rotation?
