When I Am Not Reading YA: Children's Book Edition (6)

Dylan, my little guy, is two now and is still a big fan of books.  I thought I would give you an update on what we have been reading and enjoying together.  His library is becoming quite impressive!

1. Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle - My little guy loves all things trucks, so this is a favorite of his. He loves the car sounds, the animal sounds, and I love the theme of friendship.  
2.  Bad Kitty by Nick Bruel - This book is hilarious.  I mean who doesn't love a bad cat who gets into trouble? It is also is a great review of the alphabet. 
3.  Steam Train, Dream Train by Sherri Duskey Rinker and Tom Lichtenheld - This book is a favorite of my son's. If your child loves trains, he will love this adorable rhyming book by the authors of Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site
4.  White Snow Bright Snow by Alvin Tresselt - This book won the Caldecott Medal in the 1940s and is still enjoyed today. I love the anticipation of a big snow fall and the promise of spring. This book reads like a poem and my little guy loves the illustrations.
5.  The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown - This is a classic read that my little guy still loves today. The illustrations are adorable and the message really showcases a mother's love. 

6.  Blue Ribbon Dad by Beth Raisner Glass - This is a great book to share with your little one who makes it a habit to wait for dad's return from work or a business trip. The little squirrel makes an adorable craft for his dad and thinks of all the fun things he does with him.
7.  Happy Valentine's Day, Mouse by Laura Joffe Numeroff - This is a perfect read for this time of the year. 
8.  Harry the Dirty Dog by Gene Zion - This is another classic read that makes my son laugh out loud. Harry, the dog, avoids a bath and gets really dirty, which always puts a smile on my little guy's face. 
9.  Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak - This book won the Caldecott Medal back in the 1960s and is still a favorite today. A classic.
10.  Go, Dog. Go! by P.D. Eastman - This old school book edited by Dr. Seuss is a favorite of my son's. He laughs at the silly dogs and the repeated question of "Do you like my hat?" It's also definitely a classic.

Let me know what you think and if you have any favorites to share with me! 


  1. I loved Harry the Dirty Dog when I was a kid! Glad to see it's still being read. :)

    1. Yes! It's still around. My little guy is a huge fan. It's such a cute story. Thanks for visiting, Allison.

  2. What a coincidence! I have a similar post going up next week about my two kids' reading preferences. My teen (she's 13) loves all things manga right now, while my boy (he's 8) loves to read non-fiction books more than story books. :) Great minds, great minds.

    1. I can't wait to find out what your kid's enjoy! I'll keep my eye out for that post. Thanks for dropping by, Joy!


I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
