The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!
How does this work?
The goal is to increase blog followers and make friends. First you leave your name here on this post, (using the linky tools — keep scrolling!) then you create a post on your own blog that links back to this post (easiest way is to just grab the code under the #FF picture and put it in your post) and then you visit as many blogs as you can and tell them “hi” in their comments (on the post that has the #FF image). You follow them, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! 

This week's question: What were some of your favorite picture books as a kid? If you have kids, what are your favorites to read to them?

I mostly remember reading Dr. Seuss, especially Hop on Pop which I had memorized and would pretend to be able to read. The Lorax was my favorite. I also had a collection of Disney adaptation stories, similar to the one pictured:

Hop on Pop pic name The Lorax

I don't have children, but I do read to my nieces and nephews. Here's some popular selections from the nephew I babysit most often:

Hopping through. I didn't read the Lorax until I was in high school but I remember seeing an animated version in elementary school that I liked.

Oh I forgot about the Grover book... my daughter had a copy and loved it. I've been trying to find Chicka Chicka Boom Boom for her, cause it's such a cute book.

Hi Jaime,
Hope you're having a great friday.
Haven't heard about any of your books at the exception of the Brown Bear. It's also a book I've picked for my nephew!

The Dr. Seuss book I was obsessed with was A Great Day for Up. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is a great one too.

Jaime said...

I loved the cartoon they made in the '70s, as well.

Jaime said...

He's popular for a reason. Thanks for following, I'll follow back :)

Jaime said...

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom is one of my nephew's most requested books, he has so much fun with it.

Jaime said...

Thanks for stopping by and following :)

Jaime said...

It's really great. Thanks so much!

Jaime said...

Thanks Lucie :) Brown Bear is fun, I try to make up some animal voices as we read along.

Jaime said...

Maybe so! Thanks for commenting, I'll stop by :)

Jaime said...

I haven't seen the movie, just because so many people disliked it.

Thank you! Followed :)

Jaime said...

Sure, I always follow back.

Jaime said...

I don't think I've ever read A Great Day for Up. I should correct this oversight next time I take my nephew to the library.

Thanks for stopping by!
