Thursday Thirteen- Amazing Kids Books

Now these books are amazing in my (and Hudson's) opinion. We hope you enjoy them too!

1. Dooby Dooby Moo by Doreen Cronin. This is our current favorite. It is a humorous story about a group of farm animals who enter a talent contest.

2. Big Smell Bear by BrittaTeckentrup. I like to think this story is about personal hygiene and loving the unlovable.

3. The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Who doesn't love this classic tale of a tiny caterpillar who eats too much?

4. She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain by Philemon Sturges. A fun and silly version of the song with a Mexican twist.

5. Slowly Slowly Slowly Said the Sloth by Eric Carle. Yes another Eric Carle book. The art is wonderful and the vocabulary so impressive.

6. The Poky Little Puppy by Janette Sebring Lowrey. I am all about loving a book that encourages kids to obey their parents.

7. One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish by Dr. Seuss. Colors, counting and a whole lot of ridiculousness. Such fun.

8. Mr Brown Can Moo. Can you? By Dr. Seuss. The rythym and noises in the book is pleasant and entertaining.

9. God Made You Special (Veggietales) by Eric Metaxas. I must admit I love this book solely because of the French Peas :)

10. The Cat in The Hat by Dr. Seuss. Can you tell we are Seuss fans around here? The thing that gets me about this book is that the mother left her two small kids home alone.

11. Brown Bear Brown Bear What do You See? by Bill Martin Jr. The wonderful repetition, gorgeous illustrations and learning colors make this book a must have in any preschooler's library.

12. The Beginner's Bible from Zonderkids. I do not get bored reading these stories. We read this book (not the whole thing mind you) everyday and I still love it!.

13. The Monster at the End of This Book by Jon Stone. Who ca resist lovable furry old Grover? This was a favorite of my husband's growing up and now has a special place in our book nook too. (sigh if only i really had a book nook).

For More Thursday Thirteen head over to Happy to be at Home.

We so so LOVE The Monster at the End of This Book! I make myself hoarse imitating Grover, but it's a sidesplitting delight.

And Doreen Cronin is simply a modern genius of kids' books.

Excellent list.

We read (and read and read!) almost all of these when my girls were a little bit younger. I had Brown Bear, Brown Bear memorized word for word. Great list!
