Five Things Friday: Children’s Books

For Today’s Five Things Friday, I have picked 5 of my favorite books from when I was a kid. I only have one so far, and must get the other 4!

1. Teddy Bear Picnic by Jimmy Kennedy This came with a RECORD, and my sister, Caty, and I used to sing this over and over, we used to sing one line completely wrong. It probably isn’t funny to anyone but us, but I still sing it that way.

2. Love You Forever by Robert Munsch and Sheila McGraw My mom used to read this to Caty and I when we were sick.

Love you forever

3. Shake Your Sillies Out by Raffi I loved Raffi growing up, but Caty and I got our own books with one song, and this was mine. It’s even better if you act it out.

4. If You Give A Mouse A Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff This is the only book I currently own for my baby. Nick thinks it’s hilarious that I know the entire thing.

5. Yertle the Turtle by Dr. Seuss I love all Dr. Seuss but this one was my favorite as a kid. I think mostly because I wanted a turtle as a pet.

6. I know it’s supposed to only be 5, however this is a poem not a book. My dad used to read The Children’s Hour by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to Caty and I. We both can repeat the entire poem from memory.

One thought on “Five Things Friday: Children’s Books

  1. I LOVED If you Give a Mouse a Cookie… and the Moose a Muffin… and I think there was one more! Classic.

    I also like Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

    Perhaps you can read it for yourself when you are irritated at the heat. I think I should do that myself! Why don't Europeans believe in air conditioner!? :)
