1. Pigericks
    95353fcc c3d3 4d76 8c27 2309704a0b09
    My dad gave me this when I was in a bad mood and I threw it on the ground. I will always regret that. But I still have this book by Arnold Lobel that is limericks about pigs.
  2. Three By The Sea
    F0e31bef d129 46f8 a227 94aa9773c16a
    By Edward Marshall. A mouse buys a pet cat. The cat is very coy about telling the mouse what he likes to eat. But the mouse simply must know. So finally the cat tells him: Cheese!
  3. Owl at Home
    8f917f08 c13a 4264 99ad 49c2483ebc34
    Another by Arnold Lobel. Owl lives alone. One night he feels bad for winter so he invites it inside his warm home. Sometimes he thinks of sad things to make tear water tea.
  4. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs
    71e5e858 9fa6 470f 8810 161bde9d6b3e
    By Judi Barrett. I have never quite recovered from the sadness of the characters having to leave the town of Chewandswallow. Best illustrations. (I try to forget the movie exists)
  5. Pancakes For Breakfast
    F320f4ae 4d13 473e 96db 1ee365ce68fb
    By Tomie DePaola. I think I just like books that make me hungry and cozy.
  6. Happy Winter
    Ff8d797a 96ae 429c 9f84 a4bf9a5bcb71
    By Karen Gundersheimer. This is another one that makes you hungry and cozy. Also it's a mom and two kids with no explanation about where the dad is which growing up my family always liked. Being a single mom didn't have to be sad or weird. Or maybe the dad was at work.
  7. Grover and The Everything in the Whole Wide World Museum.
    0c9a8576 27b8 49ae 847b c9cb384d6bbf
    By Norman Stiles. I found it so comforting that everything in the world was organized into a friendly museum. I used to have nightmares as a kid that I had to count all the grains of sand or all the fish in the sea.
  8. Oh, What a Busy Day!
    31ab38f3 fa7b 4502 92c4 81a2c48de9cd
    By Gyo Fukikawa. A group of little kids spends the whole day running around in fields, hiding from a rainstorm, swimming, and having picnics. And it makes me cozy and hungry.
  9. Where the Wild Things Are
    9fc80007 723c 4232 b553 cca9a4957644
    By Maurice Sendak. I could never make a list of children's books without this. But again, I try to forget the movie exists.
  10. Bread and Jam For Frances
    63bf4d63 aa52 4c6c 90ed 9e3f1c79ffb8
    By Russell Hoban. Ok I only ever want to feel hungry and cozy forever.
