Every evening, I make it a point to read to Sully. Sometimes one story, but if he's really focused, I'll read as many as three. He's only three months old, but he loves it! He looks at the pictures and responds to my voice, and sometimes he feels the need to "tell" me his own story. It's really one of the only times of the day in which he'll sit still (unless he's sleeping, of course).
I'm pretty excited that he loves it, because I want to raise a reader. I want him to learn to use his imagination and discover new worlds and enjoy getting lost in a good book as much as I do.
I'm adding to his library a little at a time, and here's a list of wonderful children's books that I remember as a kid, and hope to add soon!
The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein
Harry Potter (The entire series - he's a little young yet, but he'll get there!) by J.K. Rowling
The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs! by Jon Scieszka
The Stinky Cheese Man & Other Fairly Stupid Tales by Jon Scieszka
The Three Billy Goats Gruff by Paul Galdone
The Mitten by Jan Brett
Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne
