Macy’s List

In addition to my post “The Library”, I thought I’d post some of the books that Macy really loves.  Some of these are found in Jim Trelease’s book, and some are not.

One thing I’ve noticed – and I don’t know if it is true of all babies/toddlers, or just mine – is that there are some books that Macy grows to love.  The first few times, she’s not super interested, but after an initial two or three readings, she is hooked.  These have become some of her favorites:

Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs! by Sandra Boynton

Any of the Priddy books –

Natural Baby Play

Happy Baby Words

Baby Zoo

B is for Bear

Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann

The Everything Book by Denise Fleming

Dr. Seuss’s ABC

The Going to Bed Book by Sandra Boynton

My First Word Book by Angela Wilkes

Moo, Baa, La La La! by Sandra Boynton

Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

Ten Little Ladybugs by Melanie Gerth


And these are books she fell in love with from the minute I opened the first page:

Please, Baby, Please by Spike Lee & Tanya Lewis Lee

The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle

Blue Hat, Green Hat by Sandra Boynton

Any of the Spot books by Eric Hill – Spot Goes to School, Spot Goes to the Park, Where’s Spot?

123 by Katie Cox

But Not the Hippopotamus by Sandra Boynton

The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss

Go, Dog, Go! by P.D. Eastman

One other thing I should point out is all of these are board books.  I’ve found that she prefers (and plus it is just easier) to have a board book in her hands.  That way, she can turn the pages by herself, maybe chew a little, and the book is still in tact.  She also likes books that have a touch aspect to them or are squishy.  One of my favorite gifts someone gave her when she was born was a set of 4 soft books by Sassy, including a book that you can put photos of family members in.  This way, Macy is always looking at pictures of the family she doesn’t get to see as often as she would like.

Macy, you want Mommy to read you a book?
