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
5. Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems silly and fun
6. It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw encourages spatial thinking
7. Press Here by Herve Tullet interactive, works for readers of ALL ages
8. Mix It Up! by Herve Tullet interactive, science
9. How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers darling illustrations, sweet story
10. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. Classic book, great for alphabet awareness
