Books for one year olds that won't drive parents insane!

A Listmania! list by Marie "book crazed mama" (brooklyn, nyc)
The list author says: "I've decided to compile this list after I found that there weren't really a lot of parent recommendations for books for toddlers. My daughter loves to read, but I find myself going insane after reading the same book 20 times in a row. I've tried to include other books besides the standards (like goodnite moon, hungry caterpillar, etc)"
