Here are our top 5:
Jaiden got Happy Birthday to You by Dr.Seuss for her 2nd Birthday, and she still ask’s to read it about once a week!
The Lorax. A classic! Once Jaiden read this one she ran around outside for weeks telling everyone she “Spoke for the Trees” haha!
Green Eggs and Ham, another classic Dr.Seuss. Every time we read this for a bedtime story, Jaiden insists I dye her eggs green in the morning.
One fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish was my personal favorite when I was a kid!
Perhaps the most popular, The Cat in the Hat is ranked #1 in this house, what about yours?
