Children's Books

Jen and I were wandering through a bookstore in the Bangor Mall when we decided it would be an awesome idea to share all the best children's books that are out there; books we read as a kid and still think are awesome. This list was created as an inspiration, so when each/any of us have kids, we can look to these lists and see which books to get our own children. PLEASE ADD SOME if you have any suggestions, feel free to contribute. ^^

  • "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" by Judi and Ron Barrett
  • "Amelia Bedelia (series)" by Peggy Parish
  • "Are You My Mother?" by P.D. Eastman
  • "Abiyoyo" by Pete Seeger
