Great to see your choice of books. I'm not sure I'd have chosen the same, but that's the nice thing about these lists - it makes you go back to books and think about them again.

Childrens' books. One of my absolute favorite things! Love them. Love them lots.
I see Black Dog on your list. I have been back to B&N to look at this book several times. There is something about it...I think I may have to go check it out again and see if it is time to add it to my collection, my horde, my treasure chest, mine mine mine!

My girls absolutely loved It's A Tiger. I read it to my older daughter's kindergarten class and they got a HUGE kick out of it too. Such a fun book. I'm going to check out some of the others on your list!
