April 2nd is International Children’s Book Day. What was your favorite story as a kid? This day encourages you to get our and read it again through your children’s eyes.

Great activities for today include sharing your favorite books with your kids or the nanny taking them out to explore the library or a bookstore to choose a new favorite of their own.

Here are a few favorites from the NannyPay staff.

The Cat in the Hat

by Dr Seuss
No children’s book list would be complete without a Dr Seuss book and one of the first many of us remember reading.

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom

by Bill Martin Jr. and Archambault
Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, will there be enough room? We love how this book brings letters to life for kids.

Winnie the Pooh

by A. A. Milne
Beloved characters that have stood generation to generation.

Peter Rabit

by Beatrix Potter
Such beautiful illustrations enhance this tale of Beatrix’s original ‘friends’.

Eloise

by Kay Thompson
Adventurous Eloise is a little girl we all have fun reading.

What are some of your favorites?
