Can I just say right now that I am a sucker for children’s books? Any kind of books really, but especially children’s books. And it KILLS me that my kids are too old for these! It almost makes me anxious for grandchildren just so I can have somebody to read them to . . . almost.
I think I’ll just find somebody else’s children to read aloud to. In the meantime, here’s a short list of my favorites for this time of year. I listed them as Amazon links because it’s an easy way to show the covers, but I’m not trying to twist your arm into buying these. In fact, I recommend finding these at your local library instead, unless you fall in love with them and absolutely must have your own copy. This happens.
I really love detailed illustrations that fill the whole page. Every time you read the story, there’s more to see and more to appreciate. My kids would hold the page down with their hands to stop me from turning the page too soon.
Illustrated children’s books are like poems; stories and moments pared down to the most essential perfect words, but embedded in a vision that tells the rest of the story.
Do you have any favorite cozy books for November? If so, I’d love to hear about them, please share in the comments below.
