18 Books I Loved Reading to My Son
As a parent and when it comes to Picture Books, it's wonderful to find ones you like since you'll be reading them over and over and over again. My son Jack LOVED reading and being read to from a young age, so we spent hours each day reading and rereading these wonderful books. Thanks to the amazing children's book authors for making these books so enjoyable for children and parents alike.
Jack's and my "Top 18" include:
