Even though Toby and Anton have a big bookcase in their bedroom, we still end up reading the same handful of books over and over — including This Is How We Do It about kids’ lives around the world. (Toby even woke up early the other day so he could read it before breakfast.) It’s amazing how certain books can hold their attention for years. Here are our tried-and-true favorites…
On funny animals:
The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts (This book is fascinating, even when you’re thirtysomething. Did you know that a group of mice is called a mischief?)
Harold’s Hungry Eyes
Toby is also getting into chapter books, like Captain Underpants, which is a cute book and just the right level for him. I’d love to hear more chapter book recommendations, if you have any!
What are your go-to children’s books? I’d love to hear… (I also just got this book to hopefully help Toby with his fear of putting his face underwater:)
