Apple & Moses’ Favorite Kids Books

Some of the best memories I have from childhood are of my mother lying in bed with me and reading me stories. I can remember way back when books like Pat the Bunny and Goodnight Moon were appropriate, so we’re talking decades. We had a few greatest hits, Elouise and The Chronicles of Narnia being frontrunners. That time together was pretty indelible. I’m always looking for great books I may not know about to read to my kids. We’ve put together some recommendations that are worth checking out.

Kid Made Modern by Todd Oldham

This is Todd Oldham’s inspired take on children’s crafts book. He uses Mid-Century Modern design by the likes of Bruno Munari, Marimekko, and Alvin Lustig as a jumping off point for inspiration. Ammo books has provided a peak into this ingenious book.
