Favorite PBs 3 months

For as long as I have dreamt about being a mom, I’ve dreamt about reading to my child. Trent made that dream a reality. I so badly want him to love reading as much as I do, so I started exposing him to books at day 3 and have done my best to read him a book a day (or the equivalent to a book a day). Some books hold his attention more than others, but overall he enjoys looking at the books and hearing the stories.

Last Tuesday, Trent turned three months old! In his first three months of life, we have read 92 different picture books. In this amazing pile of books, there are so many that touched my heart, made me laugh, kept my son’s attention, and have become favorites. Today I wanted to share some of them with you. There are different books that are special for different reasons, so I have categorized our favorites below.

    Check out The Dot by Peter H Reynolds – great message. And the Pigeon books by Mo Willems are favorites around here! We just got the new one today!

    • Kellee Moye says:

      Love all of those! We read our first pigeon book to Trent recently, and he loved it! I also love The Dot. I do Dot Day when I was teaching in the classroom 🙂

  3. Debbie - Styling Librarian says:

    Loved this post! 🙂 Special ways to share/categorize as well! 🙂

  4. Cassie L. says:

    Have you read any of Amy Krause Rosenthal’s books? They are also excellent and she is one of my favorite authors!

    • Kellee Moye says:

      I have read some, but the only ones I’ve read to Trent are Little Hoot, Little Pea, and Little Oink which were a bit didactical for me. I do love her Exclamation Mark and Duck Rabbit. Though there are so many I need to read! Thank you for recommending–I’ll have to get some from my library. Which are your favorites?

  5. Elizabeth says:

    Oh man Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, The Napping House, and the one about the mouse and the strawberry were absolute favourites of mine! And I just discovered Barnyard Dance which the one year old I nanny just can’t get enough of. It’s so catchy!
