I agree...I have too many to list them all.


I love the Bear series by Karma Wilson (and just about anything else by her too)

Anything by Bill Peet

Anything by Keiko Kasza, but A Mother for Choco in particular

Anything by Jan Brett (but not Hedgie in Space or something like that)

The Pigeon series by Mo Willems

Where the Wild Things Are

Ladybug Girl (not overly great, but loved because its character is exactly like my DD)
