I am lucky enough to have two sons who adore books – and, fortunately, have inherited my quirky sense of humor when it comes to literature. Example? All books sound better when read out loud with a British accent. It’s the truth. Try it. Even my sons do it now and it warms my heart like nothing else to overhear my older song reading Captain Underpants like Mick Jagger.
This blog is my way of sharing some of my favorite children’s books with you. I’m a mother, a Stanford grad, a writer an artist and a firm believer that a good book can solve almost anything.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the name of this blog comes from the title of a children’s book I wrote and carry around in my pocket like a talisman. Maybe someday it will make this list as well…
I’d love to hear from you with your own children’s books recommendations! Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org! Thanks so much and happy reading!
