Kid Lit Picks: Picture Books & Early Readers

With Christmas being just a week from today (yikes! or yay! depending upon the status of your Christmas-to-do list), I'll combine my favorites for picture books, early readers, and chapter books. Rather than write a summary, I'll provide an Amazon link.

Here goes! In no particular order, my favorites for the younger set are:

A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh (series)

Skippyjon Jones (series) by Judy Schrachner

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day  by Judith Viorst

The Complete Tales (Peter Rabbit) by Beatrix Potter

The Bernstein Bears (series) by Jan & Stan Bernstein

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Brown

Amelia Bedilia (series) by Peggy Parish

Frog and Toad (series) by Arnold Lobel

Corduroy (series)by Dan Freeman

Curious George (series) by H.A.Rey

Is Your Mama a Llama? by Deborah Guarino

Madeline (series) by Ludwig Benelmans

Five Little Monkeys (series) by Eileen Christelow

Rosie's Walk byPat Hutchins

Little Quack (series) by Lauren Thompson

I hope my kid lit picks these past few weeks have been helpful - if not for gift-buying, then to add to your reading list (unlike the bartender, librarians won't card you to check your age!).

Merry Christmas!
