A VERY Hungry Reader!

Nolan LOVES flipping the pages of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, a book that has recently celebrated its 50th birthday! Eric Carle is one of the best authors out there. I can’t wait to take Nolan to the Eric Carle Museum in the near future.

I really don’t want to tell you how many outtakes it took to get even a picture this tame.

My baby shower was book themed and I LOVED getting so many classic board books for him! I had a discussion with another new mom at one point in the past year, where we discussed that every kid has a library that probably contains the same gems, books that were read by their parents and even grandparents:

  • Corduroy
  • Caps for Sale
  • Where the Wild Things Are
  • Brown Bear, Brown Bear
  • Goodnight Moon
  • Chicka Chicka, Boom Boom

And even some ‘modern classics,’ gorgeous and fun new staples that appear on the shelf that literally say “Baby Shower Books” at Target:

  • The Pout-Pout Fish
  • Giraffes Can’t Dance
  • Little Blue Truck
  • I Want My Hat Back
  • Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus
He was only about 4 months here! Holy Moly!

What books do YOU remember reading when you were growing up? Do your kiddos read them too?
