Kid LIT: My Favorite Children's Books
Updated: May 28, 2019
Every book is someone's favorite. These are just a few of mine.
Every children's book is worth a child's time. They have all been thoughtfully and considerately written, beautifully illustrated, and carefully chosen for publishing.

Just a Few of My Favorites
Children's books are so fundamental in our lives. We all start young and little, and we all hear or read children's books at that early stage of our lives. Because these are developmental and formative years, books are adventures, lessons, and messages that help form little minds and hearts equally. Most of us all have favorites we remember fondly across the span of our adult years, just as we do certain teachers we had through our years of education. When a child loves a story, they become so enthralled that they'll want costumes so they can dress as the characters, they'll want to decorate their bedrooms the same as the setting of the book, they'll want to make foods that are mentioned in the story, and have their birthday parties in story theme. That's a tremendous impact and is a great testimony to the power of words and the power of stories. Parents and storytelling adults should always be cautious and judicious about their choice in books and messages they want told to little ears and minds, but should also be supportive of the book publishing industry that works hard to put a wealth of information into little lives. Story time can be your child's favorite pastime if you hold the fundament of reading books in the highest regard. Choosing and reading books were always a staple in my family, including sitting every year, (and still to-date), in front of the fireplace for a Christmas Eve reading of the first Christmas story out of the Bible, and then onto 'Twas the Night Before Christmas. My daughters were always the biggest spenders at school book fairs and the readers earning the highest amount of points in book challenges. Today, my daughters are obtaining degrees in Speech and Language and in Political Science, and still love to read for pleasure. So, get lit with Kid Lit and teach your kids one of the greatest lessons of all. It's fun to read! #kidlit
