Story time is the best time of the day. Whether we're snuggled up on the couch or cozy in our pjs before bed, reading stories with my little ones is one of my favorite things to do. Everyone has a favorite book they remember from their childhood, and every day, parents and kids are discovering new classics of their own. There are many fabulous children's books out there, some of which everyone knows about and others we would have never discovered had my son not simply pulled a random book off a library shelf. I created this blog to share some of these wonderful stories with you. Think of it as a year's worth of the best children's books around, since no day should be without a great story. In the end, I hope we'll all have discovered at least a few new titles that will have made their way onto our list of family favorites. Enjoy!

Read Aloud Favorites!

In honor of World Read Aloud Day today, I thought I'd share a list of some of our favorite books to read aloud.  Don't get me wrong -- I love reading ALL books aloud -- but these are some that never fail to make us turn up our volumes, laugh, giggle, sing, dance, and read with unadulterated, silly joy!

Click the title of the book to read my review of it here on the blog, or click the image to see other reviews on the Amazon marketplace.

Happy reading aloud!
