Shelf-Worthy Children’s Books

2 Apr

Do you have shelf after shelf of kids books at home, many of which leave you wondering, “How in the hell did these even get published?”

I ask myself that about three times a day, especially given the meaningful gem currently imprisoned on my computer. But I’ll save you that rant.

The truth is, there are plenty of shelf-worthy children’s books, out there. You just need to work a little harder to find them.

Or how about this? You don’t do any work at all (take that time to cuddle your baby), and let me do the work instead. Just check out my “Shelf-worthy Kids’ Books” board over on Pinterest.com for a variety of recommendations, lovely both visually and verbally:

I’ll keep building this list as I discover more, so keep checking back. And if you have your own favorites, by all means, share them! I’d be happy to add them to the list (and enjoy them with my daughter).

Happy reading!

    Oh there are so many! What about Ferdinand the bull and the Velvetteen rabbitt… old but good. Of course Miles likes the horrible one titled “Planes.” “In the sky, planes are flying.”

      Ooh! Fantastic suggestions, Emilia! I just added them. Let me know if you think of any more. I sense a trip to the library in my near future …

    There’s a great book called “Press Here.” Doesn’t have much of a storyline, but it’s very fun and interactive. I’m excited for Faris to get old enough to enjoy it!
