Reagan's Favorite Books

As you guys know, I am a HUGE reader and I love, love, love books.
Especially children's books.

I'm thrilled that Reagan (3 years old) is equally as obsessed with books and reading as I am. 
Since many of my readers are mommies to little ones, I thought I would share some of Reagan's current favorites.  If you haven't added these to your collection or checked them out at the library, you may want to try them! 

(1)

Reagan LOVES David. David is a little trouble-maker and each page has a different lesson and hilarious pictures.  They are great read-aloud's that spark some good discussions!

(2)

We just recently got this book and it has become a favorite. We have read it before every nap and every bedtime for the last week.  Reagan has it memorized and loves to "read" it to us. It's pretty hilarious.

This has been one of Reagan's favorites since he was really little.  We have it in board book, a couple of paperbacks, and even the DVD version.  It has very little text, but allows for Reagan to retell the story using his own words.  It's a classic at our house!

Reagan loves all of the Llama Llama books, but especially this one. Hmmm. I wonder if he relates? Haha.
We have most of the books in this series and the stuffed animals from Kohls. The books all have great rhyming text and situations our little ones can relate to (going to school, going to bed, running errands, being sick, etc.).

(5)

This book was a favorite of mine when I was young, and now the author has a whole collection of these stories.  They are awesome and Reagan loves them! I would recommend the whole series!

(6)

Reagan loves to sing and this book is full of the "classics" including Twinkle Twinkle, Row, Row Row your Boat, Pop Goes the Weasel, etc. When I was teaching first grade I was always shocked at how none of my kids knew these songs! So I would teach them 1 week. I think especially at the school I was at, parents themselves either didn't know them or didn't have time to sit and sing with their children. Anyways, I'm so glad Reagan is learning and loving these classics. 

What are some of your little one's favorite books? Please leave them in a comment!

Love your blog girly! Grayson may only be five months, but he loves "Pat the Bunny", "Guess How Much I Love You, and we all the Eric Carle books in board books. He also seems really drawn to books that have real life pics of animals :) Reagan is so cute, can't wait to see the twinnies!
