Show us your life - Favorite Children's Books

This weeks SUYL topic is favorite children's books... which is ironic because my sister, mom and I were just talking about our favorite children's books a few weeks ago at Sunday dinner. When we were younger we would make a weekly trip to the library and my sister and I would get the same two books EVERY week.... my poor mom for having to read the same book over and over again.

Alli and I loved Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Lionni. When we were talking about it recently we realized the underlying diversity lesson it had in the book, however, we didn't realize that at the time we were reading it. It is about little blue and little yellow meeting and creating green, even though the rest of the community was against the two colors "together".
i also LOVED any eric carle book i could get my hands on, but my ultimate favorite has always been the very hungry caterpillar

but my favorite newer children's' book has to be Chica Chica Boom Boom, I love the colors and the rhyming in the book, and KIDS love it - which is the best part!
