Why shouldn't Mom have favorites too?

Sarrah Knight
The list author says: "Because what we think is an adorable, wonderful, beautiful, fun, funny, SHORT book doesn't always catch the interest of our children, here's a list of the children's picture books and easy readers that this mother likes best--even if I can't convince either one of my boys to settle down to read them. Of course, part of that is boys being boys and another part is likely that mom's not a boy."
