Name: Cheri Heaton Online home: I Am Momma Hear Me Roar My favorite children's book and why I love it: My favorite children's book is Someday by Alison Meghee and Peter H. Reynolds. I love it because it's sentimental and it reminds me of how special and fleeting these moments with young children are. I love any books that have a sweet, meaningful story like "The Giving Tree" by Shel Silverstein and "You Are Special" by Max Lucado. On a silly side, I love anything by Mo Willems. There's something seriously funny about that pigeon.
We're celebrating books all week long and, once again, we've asked some of our favorite bloggers about their favorite children's book, illustrator and more. Read on…My children's favorite book: My oldest loves anything that has a superhero in it. He also loves My Dad, My Hero by Ethan Long. Both my boys adore the Llama, Llama books by Anna Dewdney.
An illustrator I love: I adore all the Leslie Patricelli books with their bright illustrations. I also love Sergio Martinez (You Are Special) and Peter Reynolds (from Someday). If my life were turned into a children's book the title would be: The Momma with Red Shoes and To-Do Lists. Thanks Cheri!
