I love it when my kids love the children's books that are my favorites too. Aaron has (finally!) started to enjoy books more the past few months. He's still not reading on his own, but he likes when I read to him every day. A few recent favorites:
"The Little House" by Virginia Lee Burton (copyright 1942) is not as well-known as the others. It's a heart-warming story about a little house that loves living in the country, seeing nature around her, and watching the seasons change.
But as time goes on, the city that was once far away creeps closer and closer until the now-abandoned little house becomes completely surrounded by tall buildings, trains, noise, cars, and smog. The house is very sad because she can't even see the sun in the day or the moon at night.
Then one day, the great-great-granddaughter of the man who built the house rediscovers the house and has it moved back out to the country where it is fixed up and becomes happy again.
Aaron's other current favorites are all mice books - his latest phase.
