Favorite Children's Books

Even before I got married and had children, I had a love of children's books.  When I was in college, I would stock up on books for my future children at the semester bookstore sale.  I definitely brought at least one box full of children's book into my marriage.  So when Derek and I got married and he mentioned that he didn't love reading, I told him that the one lie he was allowed to tell our kids was that he loved to read.  It's always been a huge priority to me to have kids that love to read.  Today we want to share some of our family favorite children's books! 

These are my very favorite read aloud books.  The books that I can read to my kids over and over without getting tired of them.  They also have great pictures, which is a huge plus to me.
