    Are you my Mother is a book I remember from 17 years ago. I cannot believe Dr. Seuss is still popular.

    Here from BCs.

  2. Great list. We have several of them. May I also recommend:
    1) Farmer Duck
    2) Baby says, “More! More! More!”
    3) We’re Going on A Bear Hunt (MY personal favorite!)
    4) Walter the Farting Dog

    Happy Thursday!

    We bought the “Big Box of Boynton” set. Sydney absolutely loves “Barnyard Dance.” Thanks for all of the suggestions. It is really helpful since she is our first and my sisters have been out of the toddler books for years now!

  4. Fun list. And “The Little Engine That Could” spans age interest beyond toddlers. My Wonder Woman read it to an bunch of elementary children the other day and got great reviews from the kids. ;-)

  5. Sometimes reading these you realize are more for your benefit than for the toddler’s.

    I linked to you from 13 things 23

  6. My almost 2-year old LOVES Knuffle Bunny by Mo Willems? (I think?). Our copy is not a board book and it is about to fall to pieces. I will have to check out the ones on your list that we don’t have.

    We’ve got tons of books here, but there are some on your list that we don’t have that we could check out. (-: Love Miss Spider!
