So growing up, I mostly read encyclopedias and a bit of fairy tales and bible stories. My parents, now that I think of it, focused on academics.
Now that I have a child of my own I have started discovering a whole new world of books for children, and I love to read with my son. Sometimes I even read them before I read with him. I found a new appreciation for them. One of our favourite authors is Robert Munsch, he’s very prolific and has tons of books (Paper Bag Princess, I Love You Forever). The language is easy for kids to understand and the humor is something kids can easily relate to.
There’s also Eric Carle (Brown Bear, Hungry Caterpillar) and Ruth Spiro (Baby Loves Science series).
Any other recommendations?
