Top 10 Recommendations - Bout of Book 12.0

Trees of Reverie is hosting today's challenge. 

The Challenge: You’ve just started to work at a bookstore (or library) - what are your top ten go-to book recommendations?
I'm pretending that I work in a bookstore, perhaps one called The Shop Around the Corner.  I've been asked to put together a collection of 10 books for my customer to take to a literary baby shower.  Here are ten books I'd recommend to start off any child's library.

1. Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown simple, repetitive text, gorgeous illustrations that invite children to "read" the pictures.
2. Room for a Little One: A Christmas Tale by Martin Waddell sweet story set around the birth of Jesus
3. Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson encourages imagination

4. The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds encourages art and believing in oneself youTube video reading
5. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems silly and fun

Love that you did Children's books! My grandson absolutely loves the Harold and the Purple Crayon books. We read the same one every night he was here last summer and he was here a month. I let him take it home with him.
