Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - I love children’s books! I’m a children’s librarian, so I’ve read hundreds of them. You’re right, some are amazing, and some are not so amazing. I don’t mind if there isn’t a message, though. I mean, I read lots of books where there is no message, and I love those books.

But it’s great when there is more meat to a story too. I love all these books. Doreen Cronin is so much fun. I really love her Diary of a … books too. You should look into them.

Also, I don’t know if you’ve read any Mo Willems, but you should. Your foster daughter will love them (trust me, I haven’t met a child yet who didn’t love the Pigeon books or the Elephant and Piggie series).

Oh, and I love The Napping House. Audrey and Don Wood are great. Have you tried King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub?

Alexa Y. - I love that you did a gift guide for children’s books! There are some great titles on here, indeed. Personally, I love gifting Dr. Seuss books and The Berenstein Bears books because that’s what I grew up with! And two other titles I can think of, off the top of my head, are Good Night Moon and I Love You Forever 🙂

ashley - Children’s books really are the best. For multiple reasons. My friend recently requested books for Teens and Tweens and I sent her more picture books than I did books for tweens and teens because there is something SO perfect about them.
