As a book lover, it's no surprise that I have my fingers crossed that my children will love books like I do.
I am always thinking about books I want to read to my own children someday and the list, of course, is very long, full of titles my mom read to me when I was a child, books like Little House in the Big Woods, The Wind in the Willows, and Hitty Her First Hundred Years.
But the books that best capture the feelings I have about my own childhood, the memory of cozy days and a generally blissful life, are, without question, the Oliver and Amanda Pig books.
I love everything about these books - the darling, happy pictures, the sweet stories, the length.
Just browsing through the covers makes me want a little child to snuggle up in a blanket on the couch with and read these to. They are so happy, so fun, so cute, so idyllic.
You better believe that when I have children of my own, I will run out and buy the entire set.
Any books you are just waiting to read to children (or nieces and nephews) of your own?
