Seeing as how my husband is a teacher, I am a former teacher and a lot of our friends are teachers, Tillie lives in a house with a lot of books. No seriously, a lot.
Last summer, Tim built floor to ceiling bookcases along a wall of the basement. There are still at least 5 other bookcases around the house. Not to mention baskets around the living room. And more books in Tim's classroom. Yet, we still frequent the library.
Touch and Feel Farm book? Tillie adores that one. She reads if often when I'm blow drying my hair. The dog is her favorite page.
Speaking of dogs, Doggies by Sandra Boynton never fails to make her laugh. Well, if Tim, my mom or Kizie reads it. She doesn't care for me reading it. Which is weird, but I guess I don't make good barking noises.
When I Have a Little Girl by Charlotte Zolotow she grinned from ear to ear. It was like she agreed with the book and wanted to do all the things the mommy wouldn't let the little girl do.
I've read Tillie one of Kizie's favorite books from when she was little. Hondo and Fabian by Peter McCarty is an adorable book with a simple story and sweet illustrations. Tillie doesn't love it as much as Kizie did, but I'm sure it will be a favorite in time.
Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, Roxaboxen, Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon, and Elmer. This hardly scratches the surface of my favorite books. And, the list is sure to grow and grow.
