Armchair BEA Day 5- Children’s Books

5 Comments

NoneToday is Day 5 of the Armchair BEA and today’s topic is Children’s Literature.  I am going to separate this into two sub-categories:  Books for little ones and books for older kids- and then again specifically for boys and girls.

To read to little ones, some of my favorites are:

Goodnight Moon, Green Eggs & Ham, The Giving Tree, The Missing Piece, 23772 370493 250px-Goodnightmoon

One thing that I am so happy about, and know they get from me is my kid’s love of reading.  As we speak, my son is reading Killing Kennedy, and my daughter is well into The Elite.

For older kids in general-

The entire Harry Potter Series, A Wrinkle in Time, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Hunger Games
