This list is from Children’s Book Guide titled Top 100 Children’s Books of all Time. It really is the best list of picture books EVER! It made a little sad as I went through this list. On the one hand, I did manage to read most of these books to my three kids. On the other hand (the sad part), my youngest is almost too old for these books. I think we have another year or so, and then he’s pushing on into chapter books. Another era closed, I suppose, just like diapers to potty training and preschool to elementary school and beyond.
Capability:Mom turned me on the FreeHand Safety Strap. We both use a retractable leash to walk our dogs because the dogs like the freedom but the leash gets unwieldy when the time comes to clean up the doggy doo doo. You do actually need two hands to pick up the poo so what to do with the leash (not to mention dog treats that I am also holding!). I am usually trying to hold the leash handle under my arm which doesn’t actually work that well, especially if my dog has a smell that he wants to pursue.
