Book Wish List

I love that Baby O has so many people in her life that want to buy her things.  The problem is that she can only wear so many clothes and our house is not big enough to they keep up with the toys at the rate they are now.  Now if they want to get diapers then by all means get as many as you want!  I also try to push books since they are something that we will always have.  It was brought to my attention by my mom that it is hard to buy book for Baby O because she is unsure of what we already have.  I am an elementary teacher and have been adding to my book collection since high school so I understand how it can be difficult.  It was because of this that I stated creating 'Baby O's Book Wish List'.  It is a list of book or book series that I would like to add to our collection.  Right now it is a 4 page list and I keep adding to it as I think of books.  Not only is it helpful to our family by letting them know what books would be nice to get, but it also help me since I always think of book I want to get, but ever remember.  The list has a mixture of books, there are ones that I loved as a child (Clifford, Little Miss/Little Mister), ones my parents loved (Curious George), ones that students have loved (Where The Wild Things Are) and just one that I want to add (Chicka Chicka Boom Boom).  Take a look at our list as of right now and feel free to add any other books you think would be worth getting.
