    lildago, I was just coming back to say that. Go figure that a book about a giant jam sandwich would be called The Giant Jam Sandwich.

    Re: Favorite Children's Book?

    Does anyone have book suggestions for a book for a 2-3-year-old? I have Disney books, but they are too long to read, as well as a Dr. Seuss one. I'd like to buy him a nice shortish book that I can read to him before bedtime.

    I'm not sure if these are the right age, but have you seen the "Little Critter" books by Mercer Mayer? Most of the titles start "Just me and my (mom, dad, little sister, puppy, grandma,...)" The Berenstain Bears books are great too. The original short ones, not the chapter books. They'd be too long.

    Those are great books, veejer! I love the lessons they teach.

    My 2 year old's latest favorite is We're Going On A Bear Hunt by Helen Oxenbury.

    The "Froggy" books are really cute, have a good message and are just about right developmentally. I can't remember the author, but if you google "Froggy books", you'll find them - they are fairly popular.

    I'm a huge fan of Rainbow Fish and The Polar Express. I think I own at least three copies of each. I'm not sure why, though. When I was little, I was most interested in the shiny scales that the fish had.

    I love the "if you give a mouse" series by Laura Numeroff. Fun stories but not too long. And the older they get, the more they really "get" it!. Very cute stories

    Our girls just loved any of the Sandra Boynton books. They are short and silly and there is even one for sleepy time. Our favorites were
    Moo Baa la la la, Barnyard Dance, Going to bed book, pajama time, belly button book and Birthday Monsters.

    She is really clever with her rhymes and the drawings are so cute!
    Barnyard dance and Moo Baa get memorized very quickly!

    I LOVE the belly button book. Another great thing about the Boynton books is that you can usually find some of them at either TJ Maxx or Marshalls, which means you get them while paying much less!
