What are your favorite recommendations? See my all time favorites, I recommend them all! I’m frequently on the children’s side of the library shelving and so I’ve racked up a rather long list of cute and clever books that you’re never too old [or too busy] to flip through. Amongst my favorites are: Runny Babbit by Shel Silverstein; Baby Food, Fast Food, and Dog Food by Saxton Freyman; Spot It by Delphine Chedru; Duck! Rabbit! and Spoon by Amy Krouse Rosenthal; and Not a Stick by Antoinette Portis.
