List of Favorite Children’s Story Books

My aunt asked me to give her ideas for her MOPS group. One session is going to be about the participants’ favorite children’s books. She asked me to put together a list to bring with her, so I figured that would make a quick and easy post for today! It is certainly not an exhaustive list, but these are ones that we own and that I intend to keep even after my children grow up. This list contains story books, books for children that can be read in one sitting and are not spread out over chapters.
