17 Kidlit Read Alouds

We love children’s books at our house.  I read aloud to all of my kids (even the almost 14 year old!) And as a marriage and family therapist, I even read picture books to my adult clients.  So it won’t come as a surprise that I’m celebrating my 17th anniversary today with a list of my 17 favorite kid-lit read alouds!
the day the babies crawled away
The Day the Babies Crawled Away, by Peggy Rathman (Picture book) We never tire of the rollicking rhyme and story of a little boy rescuer.  Every time we read this book, we find something new to notice in the stunning illustrations of this book.
barnyard dance
Barnyard Dance!, by Sandra Boynton (Board Book) The rhythm of this book makes you want to dance with the animals.  Every single one of my five kids loved this when they were toddlers and can still recite it by memory.

out-of-my-mind
Out of My Mind, by Sharon Draper (Middle Grade)  This is one of the most powerful books I have ever read aloud. This book sparks discussion and teaches about discrimination and compassion without being didactic.

monster needs a costume
Monster Needs a Party, by Paul Czajak (PB)  The Monster and Me series is cleverly written, fun to read and filled with beautiful illustrations!

little pea
Little Pea, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal (BB)  Whenever we read this book we laugh at the incongruities!  Spinach for dessert?  We can’t get enough!
