This is a great book, and is especially powerful for children who are familiar with the characters. I remembering being amazed that the caterpillar turned into that huge colorful butterfly! In university, while studying elementary education I chose this book as the literary inspiration for a cross-curricular unit study for grade 1. I made math lessons with fruit, science lessons about observing insects and the butterfly life cycle and health lessons about smart food choices.
Then teaching preschool I used this awesome book to teach the days of the week, basic counting and more. Now, that my daughter is 3 we often pull down the Very Hungry Caterpillar felt board and play with it as we read the story just like I did with her brother. To me, this book is a given, and for every stage of my life, student, student teacher, teacher, mother it has come along for the ride! Babar books in general beg to be pre read , just trust me. He searches all over Paris and finally ends up in the North Pole and finds after much effort Father Christmas.
N 1 on it , meaning of course Pere Noel 1.
Babar and Zephir by Jean De Brunhoff was my favorite of all the Babar books, most of which I have tracked down and bought on ebay. What I loved about this book was we got to see where Zephir came from, and go see the fantastic world of hanging houses in Monkeyville. Babar books are always interesting to read again as an adult and this one is no exception.
Zephir comes to the rescue when a mermaid princess is taken hostage. Strega Nona by Tomie dePaola delighted me as a child and still does.

The story is about a lonely bear at a department store who despite being a little disheveled finds a forever home with a kind little girl who needs him as much as he needs her. There are so many levels to this book, as a child, I remember being awed by the thought of toys coming alive in stores when the doors are locked and the shoppers leave. As an adult, I see this as a touching adoption story.
My son loves the escalators Corduroy travels on in the store! This is another book that has lasting power and can be read for years in your home. Babies So Tall Board Books by Gyo Fujikawa was an especially desired book to me when I was little because it belonged to my older sister. Trust me though it will be a hit with toddlers.

As an adult, I think this book is more for parents and is a great reminder to chill out and let our kids bloom in their own time and in their own way. The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf is a classic tale about doing your own thing and not letting any amount of pressure change you.
I love the message this book has about being who you are no matter what environment you are in. This book is chill and sweet and the black and white illustrations make the readers feel like they are on the top of the mountain gathering blueberries too.

This book is a cute look at the world of Fern Hollow where there is a large cast of animal characters who live in a small idyllic English village. The book itself is sweet, going through village life one season at a time but my favorite thing about this book and the others by the same author was the map of the village at the start and end of each book in the series. This book inspired my imagination.
I adored this book as a child and even though hospitals have changed a lot since this book was written the story still rings true. I remember reading this book before having to go to the hospital as a child and finding comfort in it. George gets into some trouble with a puzzle and ends up in the hospital with a bad tummy ache. It turns out that he swallowed a piece! I loved the same things about it back then that my kids do today, the incredibly detailed pictures that offer an unparalleled launching pad for a young imagination.
In the Night Kitchen Caldecott Collection by Maurice Sendak is one of the many books I remember exactly where I was when I first read it ; Coquitlam Public Library sitting in the shag carpeted row boat amazed that the main character Mickey had no clothes. Mickey falls out of bed and into the night kitchen where the bakers try to bake him and ultimately he saves the day and falls back into bed and back to sleep. Even as a little girl giggling at the pictures in the book I read the words and felt the freedom from being little that Mikey felt.
Like me, he still got the heart of the story and even expressed that Mickey was naked because he was dreaming and got to do whatever he wanted.
www.minora-teplo.com.ua/includes/132/218-znakomstva-donetsk.php I read this to my son all the time. This book makes me incredibly sad.

As a rock he is unable to wish himself back into a donkey and is left to sit silently while his parents are frantic, search and finally grieve. My son loved the story and I loved how when we talked about it he expressed so much empathy for Sylvester and his parents. The obvious message that you have to be careful what you wish for is a powerful one for kids learning about consequences. The other messages which for us were the more important ones were that family bonds can break through anything and that no matter what even if he is a rock I would never give up on him. Loveable blue monster and narrator of this story.
This book is completely interactive in that Grover is speaking directly to the reader and asking them not to turn the pages. It put me in fits of giggles as a child but as a mom, I love the reminder to never judge a book by its cover. Days can suck. So our childhood books are now vintage? Great list! We love a lot of these at our house too. Oh yes!
