Books I really want to read Ethan

So, I grew up with books. I am the biggest book nerd on the planet (may be an hyperbole). My mom was an awesome mother who took us everywhere and read to us (my brother and I) every night. It really was something to look forward to. Ethan is such a hyper little guy, it is hard to get him to sit down and listen, but I try every night anyways- as part of our bedtime routine. He especially loves the books with animals, and loves it even more if you go through and make the noise each animal makes.

When he gets older, I have a whole list of big books I want to read him. Some were read to me as a child, some weren't but are my favorites.
  • The Hobbit (was read to me as a child)
  • The Laura Ingalls Wilder series (read to me as a child)
  • Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass (a favorite)
  • Harry Potter (a favorite)
  • The Myst Series (was read to me as a child, we played the games as a family)
  • The Chronicles of Narnia (a favorite)
  • A Wrinkle in Time, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and A Wind in the Door
  • Westerly by Susan Cooper
  • The Boggart by Susan Cooper
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
  • Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator (vermicious knids!)
  • The BFG
  • Matilda (I read this book to DEATH as a kid)
  • Lemony Snickets
These are all books I personally have read at least 20 times or more, and I cannot wait to share them with Ethan!

You wore out. The Cat in the! Hat when you were one or two. It was your favorite.
