Dissimilar mom and daughter's fave picture books

naptown mom
The list author says: "My daughter and I are very dissimilar, but we've read hundreds (thousands?) of books together so far. These are books we both particularly like and that are less well-known (I'm sure Corduroy, Dr. Seuss, etc. are already on plenty of lists)."
Roxaboxen
Roxaboxen
"This reminds me of my childhood.  I love that it's a true story and the adults, having grown old, still remembered their play-town of Roxaboxen.  A book every kid should read."
Pezzettino
Pezzettino
"This is a book we had to buy after my daughter requested it several times from the library.  She likes new things better than familiar things, so whenever she wants to read a book over and over again, especially over the course of several years, that's a real mark of distinction.  Of her favorite books, this is probably my favorite -- I love the illustrations and the story."
The Fire Cat (I Can Read Book 1)
The Fire Cat (I Can Read Book 1)
"I read this book as a kid and it's one of my favorite kids' books.  A great story of someone who is headed down the wrong path in life making a turnaround.  Pickles the cat is a bully, but when he's adopted by a fire station, he decides to work hard and earn a place as a Fire Cat."
The Tub People
The Tub People
"A nice, sweet story of a lost toy being found and reunited with his family."
The Hungry Thing
The Hungry Thing
"Another of my daughter's favorites, that she's wanted to read over and over.  Great for kids who are interested in playing with rhyming words.  The Hungry Thing asks for food, but uses words that rhyme with what he wants ("boop and a smacker" = "soup and a cracker")."
The Rhyme Bible Storybook for Toddlers
The Rhyme Bible Storybook for Toddlers
"My daughter loved this book when she was a baby and toddler.  When she was a preschooler, we would sometimes sit and read through all the Old Testament or New Testament stories, or even the entire book.  Even if you're not particularly religious, this is a great book for young kids as the stories are just right: one or two sentence rhymes per page, with lots of animals in the illustrations."
The Octonauts and The Only Lonely Monster
The Octonauts and The Only Lonely Monster
"My daughter loves the Octonauts series (she especially loves marine animals and particularly octopuses).  Definitely one of her all-time favorites.  As an added bonus, land animals are in it too (they live in the underwater Octopod).  The stories are okay; the illustrations are fantastic.  Definitely worth reading for the illustrations alone."
The Magic School Bus and the Science Fair Expedition (Magic School Bus)
The Magic School Bus and the Science Fair Expedition (Magic School Bus)
"Lots of kids like MSB, but I was surprised that this turned out to be one of my daughter's favorites of the series.  It's about famous scientists in history, and she likes learning about their lives as well as how they made their famous discoveries.  I'm not that interested in science, but the series is great and this is my favorite out of the series as well."
The Kitten Who Thought He Was a Mouse (Little Golden Book)
The Kitten Who Thought He Was a Mouse (Little Golden Book)
"I hadn't read this until I read it to my daughter, but we both fell in love with it."
