What's YOUR favorite toddler book? What's his/hers?

My daughter is 21 months old and rather than playing with her toys likes to spend most of her day working through a pile of books I have to read to her. So we have TONS of books but I'm getting sick of all of them. We don't have the same exact taste in books, so I like to balance it between books I like and books she likes best (I love anything by Sandra Boynton; she loves If you Give a Mouse a Cookie). So if you had to pick ONE favorite for your toddler and one for you, what would they be?

  • The Tale of Desperaux! It's a cute and exciting story, and it's a favorite for both of us. I get really into it when I read to her so she really likes how I "tell the tale" I do voices and everything, it's great. We also like to read through picture/word books with animals and shapes and autos etc She loves to point them out and practice her letters.

    Go to your library! The librarian showed me about 10 of her favorite books from when she did story time with 2yos! It was great!

  • My FAVORITE is "The Polar Express." My son LOVES "Cars and Trucks and Things that Go." He enjoys the challenge of finding Goldbug hidden on every page.
