Favorite Books for Children

I don't spend nearly as much time reading with my kids as I'd like to but I am trying to remedy this. I just want to simplify this year, do the simple and important things that I let slip past too often. The simple things, the warm moments are the ones that seem to stick in memory.

As I look back over the years at the books that my kids have loved I am trying to remember the stories that my kids couldn't get enough of. I don't want to forget and sadly, it happens. So before I get too old and forgetful I figured it was time to at least record the kids top 3 books. This list is some of the titles that I remember rank HIGH on the love list.

I hope my kids love to read as much as your kids and me. When I was in St. George I went to the D.I. and found quite a few children's books that I loved when I was little.(Where mine went, don't have a clue but I was super excited!) My favs were the Sweet Pickles series and the dog Spot series.
