Feature and Follow #8

 photo FFbloglovin.jpg

The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee's View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!





This Week's Question is: 
What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?

When my daughter was smaller and not reading books to me I remember her bringing us these books over and over. She loved these two and by the time she grew out of them they were falling apart.

I don't recall the exact names of the other books we read to her, but she had a bunch of them. I know we had some "Baby Mickey" shapes and color books. Whenever someone asked me what they could get her I told them clothes and board books.




  Next Week:
 Reading Nook Tour: Give us a tour of your favorite reading spots.

    1. It really is.. It's a counting down book, each ladybug blows away and at the end of the book they are all home :)

    1. My daughter when she was barely walking would ask you to read to her and if you said yes she brought her books out one by one for you to read. She had at least twenty in her room. lol, These were always the first.

  5. Those look great for young kids! I miss reading to my kids, they're all older now. My baby is in middle school! *sniff* But it's great to look back at all the books I shared with them. - New Bloglovin follower

  17. Board books are the best. My sister's twins are 16 months and books are their favorite objects to listen to, look at, and occasionally munch on.

    1. Yes, the munching is a big part of the appeal I think.. lol

  20. Five Little Ladybugs sounds lovely! I had a book I really loved when I was a kid that was a collection of tales, some famous and others not so much but all fascinating. (I was already into this genre, go figure! LOL) I can't remember the name of it but I know I asked my mother to keep it and you just made me realise I should bring it home with me the next time I visit mum! ;)

    1. :) I'm starting to gather books for my daughter so that she can have a good selection of books to read. Maybe I can start her on the journey of loving reading earlier than I started. :)

    2. That's actually great! You're doing a very, VERY good thing and I'm sure your daughter will only appreciate it! :)

  21. Those books look cute. :) I haven't read the 5 Little Ladybugs, but it sounds so familiar. My daughter is 10, and she'd never admit it but she still loves to listen to me read when I read to her little brother before bedtime, lol. Old follower :)
