Okay - this is a great idea! For me, it was the whole series of Boxcar Children.

When I was a tiny tot, it was a book called Emily's Moo. As I got older, I adored the Little House on the Praire books.

My TT is up, too!

Chicken Little, among a thousand others! There was one particular book, though, that my son loved, and I can't remember the name right off hand, and can't find the book. Hey, that was many moons ago!

My TT is up.

I always loved my big Mother Goose book. There was so much to read there, and it was all different.

I love reading to the kids their Toddler Bible because they can read bible stories without it being too wordy. They just love all the great stories about the giant, the big boat, and the lions. It's great.

I really cannot remember what my mother read to me....by favorite book that I read as a youth was Little Women. The book DD1 loved for me to read outloud to her was Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Dr. Suess. She also loved Goodnight Moon.

Great idea!

When I was a kids, I read the whole Bobbsie Twins series and a whole lot of Enid Blyon books. I think Enid Blyton is popular in the UK rather than here.

This is a great list. I don't remember a lot of the books that I read. I know I liked "Island of the Blue Dolphins" and the "Little House on the Prarie" series. Your list does contain some of my favorites for teaching! Thanks for stopping by my TT!

Thanks for stopping by my site. For teething, I use Little Teethers teething tablets. You can get them at any grocery or drug store. Is is around four dollars for 150 tablets (they are tiny). You just either put them in the child's mouth (under the tongue) or dilute them in water or juice. I have found that three tablets does the trick for my son, but he is big for his age (21 pounds at 9 months). So you need to just start with two at a time and see if it helps. They really helped at bedtime because it took the edge off for him and he could sleep better. Good luck! Teething is no fun at all. My little punk spent the first three days of getting his first tooth screaming and crying. He didn't eat or sleep for about 72 hours straight, with only little naps and tons of nursing. It was insane, but the second tooth was really easy. It didn't even bother him at all. I hope it goes well for you!
