I am curious what kinds of books do you buy for your small children, like ages 2-7?
Dr. Seuss - all of them. The rhythmic writing makes them so easy to learn to read.
Night House, Bright House
Love You Forever
Good Night Moon (my daughter's favorite)
The Giving Tree and anything else by Shel Silverstein
Animalia - beautiful pictures
Adam, Adam, What Do You See?
Where the Wild Things Are
I Am the Dog, I Am the Cat - so funny
The Napping House
The Stinky Cheese Man and other Fairly Stupid Tales

whatever she wants really.
It all depends on the intelligence of the child, and how sophisticated their reading skills are. What you are reading to a 2 yo, and what a 7yo is reading for himself, will be WAY different, also. If you need ideas, google "books appropriate for a 2 year old". That will give you a jumping off point.
I take my son (2) to the bookstore and let him pick out what he wants to read. Right now he's into matchng things. I think it's best to let them have a choice; though I also get him books that I loved as a child.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle
Hardcover books, usually whatever is showcased at Barnes and Noble. I don't really like series books, I prefer independent story books with good artwork.
