These Are a Few of My Favorite Books!

I just love books that have an extra special touch added to them! When I grew up my Mom read a story to us every night and my Dad came in to tell us a made up story.

Mica and Isaak love books to. Last night Isaak picked out 5 books for me to read and Mica 1 longer book. Mica's been wanting to read The Gingerbread Man. After we read it, they run around in circles taking turns being the Gingerbread Man. One has to chase the other. Their imaginations are truly amazing. I do have to say that sometimes for the adults it's a bit much. I'm talking about the running, laughing, high pitch squeals and sometimes one falls and than there is crying. They carry this imagination everywhere to. The grocery store cart is the Polar Express. Isaak shouts out to Mica, "Stop the train! Pull on the break!" I have a love and frustration with their imaginations.

I'm getting ready for spring classes. Illustration is one of my next courses. I can't wait! I love when we get to the Children's Book Illustration project!

These are a few of my favorite children's books:

The Very Hungry Caterpillar By Eric Carl

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - A Pop-Up Adaptation By Lewis Carroll and Illustrated By Robert Sabuda

Bembelman's Bakery By Melinda Green and Illustrated By Barbara Seuling (My favorite from when I was a child)

The Stinky Cheeseman By Jon Scieszka and Illustrated By Lane Smith

David Gets in Trouble By David Shannon

I have many more that I like! These are just a few that came to my mind first. I can't wait to check out this new book, Can You See What I See? Toyland Express By Walter Wick!

I love the go behind scenes in books and movies! Here's the one on this book:
