Mama Mondays - Ryan's Favorite Books

As a piggy-back post to Erin's (who has quite the delightful blog...I discovered her through a message board when her daughter was a finalist in the BabyGap contest a couple of years ago - and she won! Sarah is about the same age as Ryan, so it's been neat to compare notes. I'm sure you'll bookmark her blog once you've read it the first time! But I digress...), the following are a few of Ryan's most favorite books...these are the ones we've read over and over and over again. Some we have received free from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, which you should totally look into if it is available in your area. One free book a month! Gotta love that!

Okay, the list:
Any of the "How Do Dinosaurs..." books by Jane Yolan (Get Well Soon is a fave)
Raindrop Plop by Wendy Cheyette Lewison (a great counting book, from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library)
Anything by Sandra Boynton (especially Fuzzy Fuzzy Fuzzy...and Belly Button Book is on my list of "baby shower must-give gifts")
Anything by Karen Katz (right now loving A Potty for Me)
"Stand Back," said the Elephant, "I'm Going to Sneeze!" (a book my mom saved for me from when I was little!) by Patricia Thomas
When the Elephant Walks (Keiki Lasza, another Dolly Parton book)
Hooray for Fish (super bright colors, looks painted - Lucy Cousins)
I Love My Mama (Peter Kavanagh)
A Number of Animals (Christopher Wormell)
Don't Forget the Oatmeal (another one saved from my childhood, by B.G. Ford - Sesame Street book)
Does a Kangaroo Have a Mother Too? (Eric Carle)

If you have a Kohl's near you, they are doing 4 Dr. Seuss books this month as their $5 Kohl's Cares for Kids special. They don't hold Ry's interest yet, although he did love going to see "Horton Hears a Who" this weekend!
