The boys are quite the little bookworms, which is so great, because Noel and I both love a great book. Today, the fabulous Shelby, from Brandon and Shelby, and I have teamed up, and are each sharing our boys' current 3 favorite books!

1.  Mercer Meyer's, Little Critter: The Best Yard Sale.  We are reallyyyy into the Little Critter books these days. I think Little Critter is hilarious (the illustrations are fantastic), and the boys love the stories.

2.  Peter Eastman's, Fred and Ted Like to Fly.  This one is a super easy read, with an "opposite" motif throughout.  The 2 dogs do fun things, and they each have their own airplane...so, of course it's a winner!

3. Alison Jay's, The Nutcracker.  You have no idea how excited I am to say that this is one of the boys' favorite books.  I've never found a kid version of the book that I loved, but when I took Charlie and Walker to see The Nutcracker this past December, I found this one, and love it so much!  It's really similar to the ballet I used to perform, and the boys love the idea of toy soldiers coming to life, and the thought of going to a place where everything is made out of a sweet! 

You can find Shelby's 3 recommendations on her blog today (they're great ones!)

Shelby has become a great blog friend of mine.  She is also a momma of 2 sweet boys, and I wish all the time that we lived closer so that we could all play every day.  She is beautiful, takes the most insanely gorgeous pictures, makes really fun films of her family, and has a heart of gold.  You will LOVE her and her blog.

What are some of your favorite children's books?!

Oh I loved all the Little Critter books when I was a kid! It is so wonderful that the boys have a love of books at an early age!

OMG! Love this...we LOVE to read in our house too so I'm always looking for a good book for Madison! We love the Little Critter series as well...and the illustrations are definitely fun (and I make her find the spider on each page)! So much fun! Can't wait to check out Shelby's list!

I'll have to stop by her blog! Adorable. I love when kiddos love to read :) is it weird that I seriously buy my favorite children's books when I find them at a good price for my future children?! ;)

Mary Engelbreit's version of the Nutcracker is amazing. You have to go look it up on Amazon right now, it is gorgeous.

I like the Ladybug Girl series because it has a basset hound in it, natch. :D
