For today's Friday Favorites, I decided to compile a list of my favorite children's books. This is in no way based on literary content or reading levels or academic goals. It is purely based on the books that I either liked as a child or like as a parent (otherwise known as books that don't annoy me to read over and over).
You'll also notice that a lot of the books lean more towards girls. That's because my oldest child and only independent reader is a girl. Also, I'm a girl. As the boys get older, and we read even more, I'll probably add to this list.
Also, it needs to be said, I think a test of a good book are those that are passed along and recommended from friend to friend. For those friends that recommended many on this list and continually respond to my "What should LK read next" emails and texts, THANK YOU.
