Editorial: A Few of DOB’s Favorite Books to Read with Kids


Reading to my children has been a favorite daily activity from birth on…These days my kids are nearly 11 and 13 years old so they mostly read to themselves now but we still enjoy listening to audiobooks as a family. Give us any reason for a road trip and our first stop will be the library!

I could never pick the “best” books – there are too many wonderful ones! Here are five of our favorites:

  1. Frederick by Leo Lionni
  2. Mr. Willowby’s Christmas Tree by Robert Barry
  3. Any “Toot & Puddle” Book by Holly Hobbie
  4. Good Dog Carl by Alexandra Day
  5. Not A Box by Antoinette Portis
