The Lorax (Classic Seuss)
The Lorax (Classic Seuss)
"One of my all time favorites for kids.  I never tired of reading it aloud, and my kids never tired of hearing it.  The environmental message is a real plus also."
The Little Brute Family
The Little Brute Family
"This is a short book about a nasty and unhappy little family that learns how much more pleasant is feels to be nice.  Sounds dull, but it is a wonderful book with great sketches also."

TIKVAH MEANS HOPE (Picture Yearling Book)

"We loved this book about the meteor that landed in the yard!  Illustrations are wonderful."
Where the Wild Things Are
Where the Wild Things Are
"My favorite of all, the story and illustrations are never anything but fresh and delightful.  Maurice Sendak says he fashioned the monsters after all of his elderly aunts and uncles.  A very creative story."
NUTSHELL LIBRARY including Alligators All Around, Pierre, One Was Johnny & Chicken Soup With  Rice
NUTSHELL LIBRARY including Alligators All Around, Pierre, One Was Johnny & Chicken Soup With Rice
"There are many favorites in this collection.  I recommend also a DVD that has all of the stories and songs (Chicken Soup with Rice is a great song for kids).  Pierre is a great story about a contrary kid.  Alligators all around is also on the DVD and is a fun song and alphabet learning tool."
Where the Wild Things Are...and 5 More Stories by Maurice Sendak (Scholastic Storybook Treasures)
Where the Wild Things Are...and 5 More Stories by Maurice Sendak (Scholastic Storybook Treasures)
"Here's the DVD that complements the books.  Anything by Maurice Sendak is wonderful.  The songs are sung by Carole King."
In the Night Kitchen (Caldecott Collection)
In the Night Kitchen (Caldecott Collection)
""In the Night Kitchen" was also a story I loved to read and the kids loved to hear.  It's such a unique story about a boy who wakes up at night and hears noise coming from the kitchen.  He magically falls down into the kitchen, where 3 bakers are whooping it up and baking cake for breakfast.  Very imaginative and entertaining."
Little Bear's Visit (An I Can Read Book and Audio Cassette)
Little Bear's Visit (An I Can Read Book and Audio Cassette)
"There's a whole series of these Little Bear books.  A lovely series for kids that manages to be fun and adorable for kids without being dull or too simple."
Fox in Socks (Beginner Books)
Fox in Socks (Beginner Books)
"We could read this night after night and still have such fun with it.  It is full of tough and silly tongue twisters that I can still recall years later.  My teenager pulled it out recently, and it's still fun!"
The Big Honey Hunt, 50th Anniversary Edition (The Berenstain Bears)
The Big Honey Hunt, 50th Anniversary Edition (The Berenstain Bears)
"This is the one Berenstain book we had in the collection, but a great favorite about the search for where honey comes from (and how much easier it is to get from the store)."
Good Dog, Carl
Good Dog, Carl
