I love the BABYMOUSE series! Take a look at this video where you can meet the author Jennifer Holm and her illustrator brother Matthew Holm.

Ollie and Moon

Great book with fun illustrations - kids will love it.

Charlotte's Web

E.B. White's Charlotte's Web is a classic that has lasted through the decades. This was my all time favorite story as a child and it warms my heart that kids today still love this story. If you have never read Charlotte's Web, you need put it on your list of books to read. This is also a great read aloud story.
