When I saw that another book The Napping House written by Audrey Wood and illustrated by Don Wood was available, it quickly became a favorite of Calla's and mine. When Carter was little, Calla and I "read" it to him. We both had the words to Piggies memorized. Now that we have Joely (18 months) all three kids will come and sit with me and we read the books and laugh at the pictures and they get to enjoy a favorite book from their past with their little sister.
As for me (and the hubby) there are so many wonderful books to read out there. It is much to hard for me to pick a favorite! My reading is all over the place, from trying to catch up on those classics to what is hot on the best seller list. I must say that with having my 2 children I have rekindled my love of going to the library. We love going there and picking out new treasures (not just books, but music and movies as well). You can try out new reads and find new authors (without any buyers remorse) you also don't have to figure out what to do with your book after you are done reading it. I will say if I find an author that I really like I will purchase other books from them! My kids love it there and they can meet new friends for the day in the children's area. J.D. enjoys picking out his books to take home and Rory will run to the kids area to see what is going on! I think it is the best thing in the world when we get the car and J.D. says " I love the library mom, it's my favorite!"
