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.
Oh Say Can You Say by Dr. Seuss
Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss
Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss
Thank You Bear by Greg Foley
Mr. Creep the Crook by Allan Ahlberg
Cops and Robbers by Allan Ahlberg
Skippyjon Jones by Judy Schachner
David A. and Noelle Carter’s pop-up books are in constant circulation at home. These books are sculptural works of art that we love to flip through and that our kids love, too. Take a look at their website which is full of pop-up how-to’s.
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.
