As a youth librarian and a parent of a boy and girl, I have observed the books that my children enjoyed as they were growing up. (If you notice your child enjoying a certain book especially, go ahead and set it aside in a treasure box for them to read again when they are older or even grown! They will be so glad you saved their favorite stories) I hope your precious ones love these titles as well! -Laveda
