Beautiful books!

Ever since we've started reading to the kids, we've come across some children's books that are a feast for the eyes! We can't imagine the amount of work it took to create such great illustrations - what a feat! Anyhow, Aidan and I call them 'beautiful books' and here are some of them:

Over in the Ocean: In a Coral Reef by Marianne Berkes

Over in the Jungle: A Rainforest Rhyme by Marianne Berkes

One Night in the Coral Sea by Sneed B. Collard

Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle

One Lonely Seahorse by Joost Elffers [Yes, our kids love sea creatures! LOL!]

Fast Food by Joost Elffers

Oh, and here's a really funny one... I Am Invited to a Party by Mo Willems - really, read it with gusto and have your kid(s) participate and it'll be a blast! The cool thing is that at anytime, I can start chanting 'party, party, party..." and one of the kids will inevitably say "Wait!" Haha! Enjoy!
