Reccomended Reading: Kiddos

One of my favorite thing to do with Sawyer is read to him. Lately I just plop him on the floor with a rattle or chew toy (is that what they call them? Or is that term only used for dogs?) and I'm able to get through a book or two. Him in the high chair with some Puffs has also proven successful. Here are a few books that we- fine, I- love.

1. Dragon Loves Tacos by Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri- This is a fun book about dragons who love tacos but hate spicy salsa.

2. Boy and Bot by Ame Dyckman and Dan Yaccarino- A boy finds a robot and accidentally turns him off. The robot wakes up when the boys is sleeping and tries to fix him. It's cute and I love robots.

3. Blackout by John Rocco- I love the message behind this book to put down technology and spend time together (it's set during a NYC summer blackout).

4. Skippy Jon Jones Series by Judy Schanchner- I love that stupid kitty boy. These books are so much fun to read aloud.

5. Little Critter Series by Mercer Meyer- These are old favorites from my husband's and my childhood. They always have good messages and are quick to read.

6. Hug Machine by Scott Campbell- Campbell is an awesome illustrator and his story of a little boy that loves to give hugs is the perfect excuse to grab your little guy or girl and give them one too.

7. The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt and Oliver Jeffers- This epistolary story is told from the perspective of some fed-up crayons.

8. The Pout Pout Fish by Deborah Diesen and Dan Hanna- A friend got this for Sawyer at my bookish baby shower and is about a sullen fish that is one day cheered up by a kiss.

9. Indestructibles: Baby Faces by Amy Pixton- This book claims to be indestructible to tears, teeth, etc... and has been so far. Sawyer pretty much always has it while in the car and loves it.

10. Dinosaur Farm by Frann Preston-Gannon- This is a simple story about a farmer... who has dinosaurs to take care of!
