Eight picture-books you should read to your kids

It's birthday time in the Swirley household which means BOOKS galore for young EK. He has already received two from his wife-to-be and in-laws in celebration of birthday number three.

My favorite thing about books as gifts are the inscriptions. Especially Ellis' future father-in-law's (Norm) notes.

So, without ado, I present to you a list of excellent books plus some of Norm's notes to my main man, Ellis. Also, as you probably already know, you shouldn't listen to anything I say. But still, these are awesome books. READ TO YOUR KIDS and enjoy the ride.

* I have in no way been compensated for my recommendations. In fact, the authors might be terrified that I have read and love their work.
