My Favorite Children's Books

A Listmania! list by Laura M. Redman
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Growing up, my Dad read to me every night before bed. It was our special time together and a memory I will never forget. These books took us on so many great adventures! This list holds a special place in my heart. I look forward to sharing them with my children at the point I become a Mother. Until then, I choose to give them as baby shower gifts and birthday gifts. I have been amazed how much my friends and coworkers love that I've started their child's library. And are excited to see what I come up with to add to their collection."
