There’s nothing like a great bedtime story, or just snuggling together with a book any old time. Whether you’re looking to add to your current kid library, or are gifting a book to a little one on the way, we’ve chosen 7 can’t-go-wrong classics. After all, one of the most important things we can do, is read to our kids. Check out a few of our favorites below.
Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown – Check It Out Here
A classic bedtime book, featuring a little bunny saying good night to all of the things in his room – before he nods off to sleep.
The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn – Check It Out Here
A must-have for any little one who is hesitant to head off to school (Hey it can be scary!). Chester Raccoon’s nerves are calmed when his mother puts a kiss in the palm of his hand – for him to place on his cheek any time he’s missing her. All together, now…Awwwww.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle – Check It Out Here
A timeless classic, about a little caterpillar who eats his way through this stage of his life and ends up sick with a stomachache (Not judging, we’ve all been there). But you know how it ends in this brightly illustrated story.
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Who Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle – Check It Out Here
This brilliantly illustrated book catches little one’s eyes as they flip through all the brightly colored animals. A great book for learning colors.

A (duck) tale of Mrs. Mallard, and getting her duckling through the busy streets of Boston to their home – with a little help from the Boston Police.
Strega Nona by Tomie dePaola – Check It Out Here
Strega Nona knows. Her magical, never-empty pasta pot has intrigued (a very hungry) Big Anthony. But when he tries to cast the spell, he ends up filling the entire town with pasta (is that a bad thing?).
Love You Forever by Robert Munsch – Check It Out Here
An amazing story about the bond between a mother and son. Try to read it without the tears falling.
