  1. I read so many of these to my Kindergarten kids!! Classics! Love all the Dr. Seuss and Eric Carle 🙂 XX Jen

  2. It was World Book Day for us! I guess it’s the same thing. I loved some of those books growing up.

    1. It’s even better that it’s world book day! I thought it was just a national holiday:) thanks for reading xxxx

  3. I loved the very hungry caterpillar! Reading this list reminds me of so many things I had forgotten about from being a kid. If you give a mouse a cookie & green eggs and ham were also favourites 🙂
