The list author says: "I love to read picture books to my children. My favorites are vintage books and ones that have a bit more plot and advanced vocabulary and appeal to older children and adults, too. I also love rhyming books and books with black and white line drawings. These are the books that we read over and over."
"This is a British book with real letters and postcards and games tucked inside. It also has a clever plot involving many fairy tale characters. My boys truly love this book! They also love the sequel, The Jolly Christmas Postman."
"My children love books with their own names in them. So, I got this book for my Henry. I usually get them each a few books with their names for Christmas and their birthdays. Luckily, my boys' names (Joe, Jack and Henry) seem to be used a lot for characters in picture books."
