Great Books for Young Children

Have you ever heard the phrase “Children are made readers on the laps of their parents”? I whole-heartedly agree with that statement! Reading books is a favorite past time in our home. Read a loud time can happen any time during your day. Bed time, bath time, after dinner, any time that allows you to sit together as a family and enjoy a good book.

Here are some great books for young children that we think you will love!
