Top 10 Picture Book Read Alouds

Kids are books are my favorite.  That’s why I’m drawn to writing kidlit.  That’s why I’m always reading at least 5 books at once and that’s probably one of the reasons I have 5 kids of my own. Reading aloud to my kids synergizes two of my favorite things, making it more appealing than ever.  Here is a list of my family’s top 10 picture book read alouds.  (I.e.  we have read each of these books a gazillion times and we still love them!)
