If you make your own list, be sure to let me know, I'd love to read it!

Fun Mommy of 2 said...

I know have to make my list. I have no idea how many books we have read.

Heather said...

I think that I am going to have to make our list now. Does all of the reference books that Sammy reads count?

Kate in NJ said...

Thanks for visiting Gals!
P- I hope you're sitting with a good book right now.;-)
C & Y - I never think to keep track of most of what we read, but blogging about some of them helps,lol.
H- yes, it does to me!

Brit said...

We love Roald Dahl, and The BFG is really a neat book. P might enjoy it now, or maybe a little later. Good book to read aloud.

nina said...

Oh my oh my, run don't walk to the bookstore and purchase a copy of Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney. You will love it. Thanks for playing along. I like the idea of creating my own list like Beth at Tiger Moon did. Although, it would take so deep thinking. :)

I thought about making up my own list of my top 50 picture books, but I don't think I have the energy. :) You can see some of my favorites here (sorted by star rating): click here
...but I haven't finished rating all the books.

Hi there,
I just came across your blog as it was linked to another that I read. I also have one daughter, age 3. I am hoping to homeschool her formally, but we do lots of learning activities in our daily life. Just wanted to say that I am looking forward to looking though your blog more. Feel free to stop by mine also:

Thank you both for stopping in and leaving a message!
C- I will be stopping in to check out your list soon.

A- I can't wait to check out your blog too!

Daphne said...

I definitely have some books to check out! I must say I was disappointed that The Peter Rabbit series didn't make it, although I perhaps they are a bit dated. Thanks for showing me something new to partake in.

Penelope said...

I'm with you....we're not big fans of Junie B. either! I was happy to see a few Dr. Seuss books on there. I've often heard them criticized, but my kids love them.

Mrs. Darling said...

Okay I did this on my blog and I ended up with far less books than anyone Ive seen so far. Im going to start reading some of these. Better late than never.

Cher Mere said...

Z's read 68 of them.
Thanks for the list!

Mariposa said...

I am finally getting around to this. Ami has read 76% of the books on this list, and I have read 81%.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
