Here are some of our favorite kids books:
One to Two Years Old
Funny Farm by Tom Arma (Photographer) Our little one loved the pictures of the babies dressed as animals.
But Not the Hippopotamus by Sandra Boynton
The Lady With the Alligator Purse by Nadine Bernard Westcott
The Rhyme Bible by Toni Goffe (Illustrator), Linda J. Sattgast
This is a compilation of biblical stories written in rhyming verse--great for little ones! Very fun for kids and parents and quite accurate to the biblical accounts. The rhythm of the stories make it easy for kids to remember and "read" along.
Count by Denise Fleming. A great book on numbers. We had hand signs for each of the animals.
"Wibbly Pig can Dance" by Mick Inkpen. No longer in print, but a great book for toddlers.
"Wibbly Pig opens his presents" by Mick Inkpen. No longer in print, but a great book for toddlers.
When We Go Shopping by Nick Butterworth. A really nice series of books.
Barnyard Dance! by Sandra Boynton. A great action story.
Three Years Old
The Beginners Bible: Timeless Childrens Stories by Karyn Henley, Dennas Davis (Illustrator)
This is one of the best Bibles that we found for three and four year olds.
Four Years Old

Children Just Like Me This delightful book teaches through the connection with other kids.
Clifford, the Small Red Puppy A great tale of a little girl's love of a puppy.
Leah's Pony A sweet story of a girl and hard times on the farm.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory We read a chapter each night before bed and she loved it.
Mint Cookie Miracles
You Are Special by Max Lucado
This is a tale about the Wemmicks, a village of wooden dolls, and their Maker. The main theme is about how our view of ourselves should be determined by our Maker, not by the opinions of others. Really wonderful illustrations!
Worms in My Tea : And Other Mixed Blessings One of the funniest books on motherhood.
