Fun Children's Books

Posted On: April 2nd, 2018

                    Today is International Children’s Book Day. Established in 1967, the day was created by the International Board on Books for Young People to help encourage children to read and hopefully inspire a love of reading.  The day coincides with the birthday of fairy tale author Hans Christian Anderson. As a kid I spent a lot of time at the local library reading as many books as I could. I still love reading to this day, but the time demands of being an adult sometimes makes it difficult to sit down with a good book. My little one, however, loves to read. We read several books each night before bed.  A lot of times she will carry one or two around the house and read them when I am making dinner or folding laundry.  She certainly loves her books. Below is a list of books for children of all ages to enjoy and hopefully spark their passion for reading.
