    One of my all-time favorites is shel silverstein's "The Giving Tree". It's one of those books that still brings a tear to my eye.

    I loved the Berenstein Bears when I was younger. Used to have a whole shelf dedicated to all their stuff in my room lol.

    Franklin was a good series also. The artwork was amazing.

    We had playgroup at the library this week. My daughter and her friends really enjoyed Bread & Jam for Frances. I loved that book when I was a kid, especially all the little details about the kids' lunches at school: she puts a doily down, a little vase of flowers, she has a tiny salt shaker for her celery, etc.

    We also read an "Olivia" book which I'd never seen before. She's an adorably drawn pig with an annoying little brother. Also, my daughter kept talking about "The Birthday Cat" by Leslie Anne Ivory. She paints beautiful realistic cats and made it into a cute little story about a cat who gets a tiger toy for his birthday.

    We all had so much fun - we're going to have to do that again!

    I loved Frog and Toad. The illustrations are wonderful. Thanks for bringing that one up, my son is about to an age where he can read it himself.

    I just finished reading The Indian In The Cupboard to my kids. Great book! Lots of good things to talk about like compasion and responsiblity in it.
