10 books I can’t wait to share with my son

My baby turns 1 today! How is that even possible??? It seems like not that long ago that we were finally bringing him home from the NICU. But then it also feels like he’s been part of our family forever. It’s weird. In honor of D’s 1st birthday, though, I’m dedicating this post to him.

I’ve always thought about what books I would want to have in my library from my childhood for my kids to read. I love watching my son as he develops his love for reading. Here’s a picture I took just the other morning (yes the book is upside down haha).

Baby reading

I look forward to when he is able to move past the board books. Here are some of the books that I can’t wait to share with my baby!

Dr. Seuss

These books are just classic. The illustrations are fun and so is the rhyming.

Nate the Great

I loved these books when I was a kid! They always left me craving pancakes though…

Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle

I wasn’t always the best-behaved kid myself, but I enjoyed reading about Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle’s clever ways to help parents with their kids.

Magic Tree House

I was OBSESSED with these books in elementary school. I could not get enough! And I feel like there have to be at least…50 by now? Maybe more?

From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

My husband and I both loved this book when we were growing up. Who wouldn’t want to spend the night in a museum?

Harriet the Spy

Harriet is so spunky and I’m pretty sure I even started my own spy notebook after reading this book (despite how it ended up for her…)

The Lightning Thief series

I have always loved Greek mythology and so I hope these books can be a good introduction for my son.

Harry Potter

DUH.

The Hunger Games

I know there’s a lot of controversy about the level of violence included in these books, but I feel like they were really influential on a lot of readers. When I read these books, I fell in love with the series, and I want that for my son as well.

Sherlock Holmes

I have also always been obsessed with Sherlock Holmes. I had an abridged version of his stories when I was growing up and I look forward to sharing the books and the shows with my baby when he gets a little older.

What books do you guys want to share with your kids one day? If you already have kids, what’s been the most fun thing to read with them?

  1. Reading Harry Potter with my middle child right now. He’s also reading The Lightning Thief series on his own. He’s my biggest reader, but the most recent book that my two oldest enjoyed was Ready Player One.
