A Few Bookish Children's Books

I'm a sucker for good kid's books, and better yet if they're related to reading or writing. Here are a few that we have and love:

Biblioburro by Jeanette Winter: A Colombian man decides to donate his excess books to kids-in-need by way of his burros (based on a true story). 

The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers: The more he eats, the more the boy learns! But then he gets a little carried away...

A Child of Books by Oliver Jeffers (he's the best): The illustrations in this book about reading and imagination are beautiful. 

My Pet Book by Bob Staake: Books are easy pets until they disappear...

It Came in the Mail by Ben Clanton: A letter-writing campaign to the mailbox goes right... and then wrong... and then right again (now every time we go to the mail we talk about dragons in the mailbox).


  1. I've read 3 of these -- I'll have to look for the other two at the library soon!

  2. OMGGGG I need them all! My favorite in this vein is The Boy Who Was Raised by Librarians by Carla Morris.
