So in no particular order here are my selections.
I really believe this is a modern version of the graduation gift that parents love to give with Oh, The Places You’ll Go. The beautiful illustrations and lyrical rhymes create such a sweeping landscape of all the possibilities that await for a child, yet we are reminded that we should never forget the road that will always lead us home.
Anything by Chris Van Dusen
This is the quintessential book on how you tell a children’s story! I just love Julia Donaldson and you can’t go wrong with any of her books, but this one is just so amazing, especially as someone who has studied children’s literature.
I loved this book as a child and recently read it aloud to my boys. It was still just as amazing as it was to me as a child and I look forward to many more readings with them as they get older.
I had a thing as a kid for orphans, especially when they found hidden places to escape the world around them.
