Bubba and Beau, Best Friends
3.  Bubba and Beau, Best Friends by Kathi Appelt
The list author says:

Mr. Putter & Tabby Pour the Tea
4.  Mr. Putter & Tabby Pour the Tea by Cynthia Rylant
The list author says:
  "I won't add every Mr. Putter and Tabby book to this list, but we like them all.
The main character is a nice older man. I like that the books expose kids to stories about a different generation. And Mr. Putter is cool. He's old and doesn't mind it. He's usually up for an adventure with his neighbor Mrs. Teaberry.
Listen to these books on CD. The reader, John McDonough, is amazing."

Billy And Blaze
5.  Billy And Blaze by C. W. Anderson
The list author says:
  "This is the first of a series of books Emilee and I have read. They're older books, written in the 1950's, I think. They're simple stories about a boy and his pony. In each story, they have one main adventure. They remind me of cool bedtime stories my mom would have told me. Nice illustrations."

Katie and the Mona Lisa
6.  Katie and the Mona Lisa by James Mayhew
The list author says:
  "We like all James Mayhew's Katie books. Katie and her grandma visit art galleries, and while Grandma rests, Katie explores. She climbs into the pictures and interacts with the subjects. The books include reproductions of the pictures along with other age-appropriate info (ex., brief explanation of pointillism). Clever, engaging stories. Has Emilee talking about art. Good fun!"

8.  Freddie Learns to Swim (Little Barron's Toddler Books) by Nicola Smee
The list author says:
  "I don't know how many times we read this book. Emilee liked all the Freddie books, but this was her favorite. The text is very simple--we often added our own commentary, but the story is very appealing to a toddler/preschooler."

17.  Paddington by Michael Bond
The list author says:

The Runaway Dinner
22.  The Runaway Dinner by Allan Ahlberg
The list author says:
  "Emilee thought this book was quite funny. It's a sequel to "The Pencil" by Ahlberg (which we also like). My favorite part is that Ahlberg gives a name to everything--even the three peas that run away. Quite humorous. I like Ahlberg's quirky sense of humor."

The Adventures of Bert
23.  The Adventures of Bert by Allan Ahlberg

Bert is a British man with a wife (Mrs. Bert) and a baby, whom we're not supposed to wake up but always do when we turn a page. Bert has odd adventures, like the time he is chased  by a sausage (a man dressed up in a sausage costume). Good fun!"

Only after getting caught in a downpour and returning to his normal-looking self can Dandelion go to the party."
