50 + Books To Add To Your Child's Library

I love reading- I always have.

I remember sitting on the floor with my mom when I was five as she read Laura Ingall's prairie adventures to me.

I asked some of you to tell me your favorite children's stories & I love the responses I got because some of these I'd forgotten about, or never even heard of. I shared my own extensive list, too.

Thank you for sharing!
