I must admit that my children are starting to tell me I am old, I remember doing this same thing to my mom, she probably did it to her mom as well. In some ways, yes I guess I am getting older. I have an affinity for the less than new, and picture books are no different. I was one of the lucky children who had people reading to me all of the time and then once I could read myself, I was hooked. What is funny is that I remember so vividly some of the illustrations in my favorite children’s books. I could get lost with my imagination while looking at those pictures. There are some great stories that have come out in recent years, I have a few of those that are fast becoming timeless treasures for my children and I, but nothing will beat the picture books from my youth, the ones my grandmother read to me over and over, the ones my mom would let me curl up next to her and look at, those books. You need to read those books to your children, here is my list of favorites, they are oldies, but oh so good!
