Five Books

I recently asked on my FB page what five books should every child own. This was a purely selfish request on my part. I wanted to know what books I should get for Sweet Pea's Easter basket. I had my personal favorites (The Polar Express, Where the Wild Things Are, Goodnight Moon, I Love You Forever and any Little Critter book.). I was surprised at some of the responses I got from people. No one else listed The Polar Express. But I did get some great suggestions. They included The Giving Tree, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Poky Little Puppy, the Berenstein Bears and any Richard Scarry book.

As I shopped for Easter, I grabbed a few classics that were recommended but I am working on compiling a list of books I want for Sweet Pea's library. So if there is anyone out there listening, I would love to hear your thoughts. What five books should every child own?


  1. Hungry Caterpilar is a MUST!! Also Guess how much I love you and We're going on a bear hunt. Couldn't live without a wee bit of Dr Seuss and then there's the current favourite - I want a Cat

  2. Hold off on the Hungry Caterpillar--I have a special edition one here and if you remind me when I see you next, I'll give to you -- they sent me TWO! Just have to remind me when we go to Jen's to pull it out for you or i'll forget!


Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
