But on occasion, as I pull the box from the closet, and excitedly take stock of what we have, I've noticed that some things are missing. Some things that I love and know I will need.
Books, books, and more books. Now, it's been a while since I've been in the baby/toddler book phase, and I do have a few classics left over from those days gone by. And if I don't have them, I know what I need to get.
Great books like, "The Giving Tree", all the Eric Carle books, "The Rainbow Fish", "Good Night Moon", and all the Dr. Seuss books.
And of course, there are the personal favorites. For me, it's all the "little critter" books by Mercer Mayer. I just loved reading those books to my son, whose now 15, and my youngest daughter, who is now 12. Wow, has it really been that long? Time sure does fly.
So, when I think about the time that has gone by, I'm sure there are some new classics out there now. That's where I need your help. Tell me what your favorites are, whether it be old or new. I want to know. I need to know so I can go shopping!
