Best Children’s Books
A few weeks ago I was invited to a baby shower. The host asked each guest to bring a book to start baby’s bookshelf. Baby board books, kids books, classic books, anything to build a collection of the best children’s books for a new future reader.
I thought this was a brilliant idea…until I had to actually choose one. Just one?!? How on earth can you choose just one forever favourite!?!
Addicted to kids books
You see, I am a total sucker for beautiful kids books. Our “kids” bookshelf is full to overflowing, and I admit the collection started long before I had kids. Might have started when I worked at a magical bookshop after university graduation 25 years ago (Through the Looking Glass in Nelson, BC…still there, same owner, tell Sharon or Peggy I said hi!).
Nowadays, I have to strictly limit my Amazon browsing, and steer clear of the kids section at my local Chapters (where I am currently writing this blog post…). Gorgeous illustrations, a favourite author, or a cute storyline, the temptation is just too great!…
