Just like I made the decision last year to track my books, I decided I should keep a book log for Lily. I write down the names and authors of all the books we read to hear. So far, she's listened to 240 books! I'm sure there are more that I forgot to record.
I'm going to write about her favorite books from each year, hoping that it will help those of you reading with children of the same age!
By far, her favorite books were these two from DK Publishing - Baby Colors and Count with Me. She LOVED looking at the pictures of babies (and particularly loved the little boy on the cover of Baby Colors!). She read and/or looked at these books into her first year.
Another favorite was Baby Cakes by Karma Wilson. Jane Pelletier gave this to Lily as a gift, and we loved the rhythm of the story along with the illustrations. This is one we still read occasionally.
Tails was a gift from the Holdman girls at Lily's baby shower. I probably should have waited until she was a little older, as she played pretty hard with this book and we lost a number of the tails! However, it was worth it! We also liked One Yellow Lion by Matthew van Fleet.
