I am children's books snob

I admit it. I have read a few books to my kids (*hundreds*) and a lot of them are just not worth my time. I am to the point now that if I don't like the book I get rid of it-donate or even throwaway (gasp!) I am not sure how to describe the books I like. I like books that are not insulting to my child's intelligence. I like books with great art-all different kinds of art. I especially like books that have a moral to them because you are reading you might as well get some character development in there too. I like books that are fun to read (but I am not a huge fan of Dr. Seuss).

So, here is a list of books we have read lately that I just like:

Mailing May
Higgin's Bend Song and Dance
The Salamander Room
Click Clack Moo, Cows that Type
The Bee Tree
The Raft

The days are so different. Instead of mess and homeschool teaching I have a DH working from home and quiet until 2:54 when #6 (who is 10)...
