Books were one of my very first loves in life. I've been an avid reader since I can remember, so naturally when I found out I was pregnant with the Squirt, I registered for a plethora of children's books along with the requisite diaper genie and bottle brushes. Now, over four years later, I have two kids who love to be read to and one who is finally getting curious about what we're doing when we all squish together on the couch before bed. But the thing is - our book collection has grown a bit stagnant.
No brainer. We'll read anything by Eric Carle. It took me a while to realize he had written anything beyond The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Brown Bear Brown Bear. He's got over 70 books to his name and they are all beautiful.
