This week, as some of you may know, featured my birthday. Which, aside from everything else, got me thinking about favorite children’s books. Because when I was a wee one, it was something of a tradition in my family of origin to read Russell and Lillian Hoban’s Birthday for Frances to the birthday kid. We loved the Frances books, among many other wonderful picture books. Which I enjoyed, and continue to enjoy, well into my adulthood.
What are some of your favorite children’s picture books from your early years? Did you have any reading rituals in your household? If so, what were they? Share in comments!
