I grew up on picture books, of course. They were what hooked me on reading. My parents read to me when I was still an infant, and I was reading on my own by the time I was three and a half. Of course, my mom is fairly certain my "reading" was just me repeating the stories I'd memorized since they'd read certain books to me so many times, but it still counts.
1. Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin
I actually didn't know about this book until my sophomore year of college. I was wondering around our curriculum lab and found it and loved it.
2. Virginia Wolf by Kyo Maclear
My modern novel prof read this to us one day for part of our class session. It was great fun.
3. Degas and the Little Dancer by Laurence Anholt
I love La Petite Danseuse. I actually have a small copy of her in my bedroom at home.
4. Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans
Madeline is forever my favorite.
5. Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey
6. The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg
Truth be told, I prefer the movie, but still.
7. Little Bear by Else Holmelund Minarik
Did y'all know Suzanne Collins worked on this one's TV show production team?
8. The Berenstain Bears by Stan and Jan Berenstain
I have a ton of these still.
9. The Jolly Pocket Postman by Allan and Janet Ahlberg
Books with things you can pull out are so much fun.
