We are going to post some of our favorite books, and in turn would love your favorite children's books for story time. You know the ones that captivate and engage the children. We will add new books often as our themes change. We thought this would be useful so when you go to the library you can have a list of tried and true.
Click on the picture for a link to amazon. Some of these books will be at your library, if they are not you can always request them. My brother-in-law illustrated this first book, every time I read it, it quickly becomes one of the children's and adult's favorites.

20 Hungry Piggies- By Trudy Harris
A number book that plays off of the three little piggies and "this little piggy went to market".
The illustration is fun and colorful with cleverly hidden images.
Knick Knack Paddywhack- by Paul O. Zelinsky
Another number book that is sing-song. This is a pop-up book that is great for story time.

Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea- by Valeria Petrone
An adventure story that shows children the wonder of using their imaginations.
Starry Safari-by Jeff Mack
Another colorful adventure book showing children the excitement of using their imagination.

The Great Stroller Adventure- by Denis Markell
If it isn't obvious my kids love going on imagination adventures,
this is another well loved book in my home and music makers.
My Many Colored Days-by Dr. Seuss
This is a whimsical colorful book about feelings,
and unlike other Seuss books, it is a quick read.

How Big is a Pig?- by Clare Beaton

This beautifully crafted book teaches children about farm animals and opposites as the pig takes you through the story to the final spread where the answer is final told.

These are just a limited few, PLEASE comment with your all time favorite books for story time.
