    I am re-reading Little Women.

    Its not really a "Children's Book" maybe, a young adult book possibly. I am staying with a family from church and I forgot to bring my books so I was given this to read and I am enjoying it again.

    The Chronicles Of Narnia

    I cannot put down that book! I am on the third story now. The author is such a good story teller. I love how comforting children's books are. They are simple and aren't as dramatic as novels.

    I find Children's books really fascinating.

    Not only are they entertaining, but they are also quick to read and hold much more valuable information than a lot of adult books out there! I mostly enjoy Dr. Seuss books, his books will forever have a place in my heart <3

    toddlers how to read. I love making silly voices & faces and seeing the mesmerized look on their face. Not to mention the look they get when they can read it back to you, it's priceless.
