A bonus part of parenting is getting to read our favourite childhood books again. Even better, it’s an excuse to read books with awesome pictures. Today, I was in the bookstore picking out a gift book for a birthday party we are attending this weekend and nostalgia hit me square in the head. I used to love sitting around the librarian at school while he or she read us the latest book, or picking out a new book for mom and dad to read to me. I read to my little monkey now, though he is only 8 months and hardly pays attention. I don’t think anyone will argue that it isn’t beneficial for him. He already has a great collection of Curious George (Marget & H.A. Rey), Dr. Seuss, Robert Munsch and others that you would expect in a children’s personal library. However, we have a few new soon-to be-classics, and of course classics that most of us have forgotten about.
