Ever since the first time I read the words out of a National Geographic magazine, I have loved to read. I believe the most important thing you ever learn in this life is to read, because through reading you can learn anything else there is to know.
As an avid reader, our home library is quite large. It grows daily (especially when I am shopping for new curriculum). I even added five books to the collection this afternoon!
We have a lot of favorites in various genres. Today, I'd like to share with you my children's favorite list of picture books. We made this list together for the readers of Texas Homemaking. You may have read some of these, while others maybe be unknown. These are all wonderful reads, I promise!
Do you have any favorites you'd like to add? If so, please share in the comment section!
