    I love snuggling up by the fire, or under a blanket on the couch and reading with my daughter. She didn’t like reading at all until recently. Now she has discovered a whole new world and can’t stop reading. This past birthday, to encourage her to read, I wrote a book with her as the main character.

    Oh, I’ve blogged, facebooked, and I’m a subscriber!

    Yay! Keeping my fingers crossed!

  21. I read to my kids whenever they want and always before bed! We love all sorts of books!

  22. My newest favorite is “What was I scared of?” by Dr. Seuss. It’s all about learning that sometimes you fear something that’s actually harmless; in this case a pair of pale green pants racing around town — with nobody inside them! My boys love it.

  23. Our favorite books right now are anything by Tomie De Paola, especially Strega Nona. Gets everyone laughing and my kids really like the illustrations.

    My favorite time to read is after school- it helps everyone calm down and relax a little before dinner/homework time.

  35. Our kids love to read to! We read at any time we can. In the morning just after waking. Before naps, after naps, before bed. Our kids just can’t get enough. I love to cuddle up next to them and share fun adventures!

  36. I just tweeted about it! πŸ˜‰ Love Target…love your blog too!

  37. Kiss Goodnight! LOVED reading that to my oldest son Billy. He would hide under the covers when you got to the part where Mama says Kiss goodnight, so I couldn’t kiss him and finish the routine of bedtime. Still hides under the covers when I pull it out the book at night. Then of course we have One fish, Two fish, red fish , blue fish and Go Dog GO! And our family’s personal favorite, The Diggingest Dog!

  60. My favorite Children’s book would be Oh the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss.
    In our house we like to read at night right before bedtime, it also helps the children wind down.

  61. We read everyday. We definitely read before bed, but we read throughout the day too. πŸ™‚ My son’s favorite books are anything to do with monster trucks or fire engines, but he’ll listen to anything which is wonderful.

My daughter has actually cheered at that part!

  197. Natalie Knight says

    My favorite book to read to my children was, “You Are Special”, by Max Lucado. I loved reading to them in their bedrooms, all snuggled up one bed…all three kids listening until they couldn’t keep their eyes opened any longer. Then I’d carry them to their own bed, and they’d ask, “What happened? Is it over?”

  198. We love to read just before bedtime at night. Goodnight Moon is a favorite of mine but my girls are older now and reading more advanced books. My youngest loves the Magic Tree House books. This month they’ve taken turns reading Christmas books after our Advent devotional.

  276. Becky Guenther says

  277. Wow! This is a wonderful giveaway! If I had to pick just one book to read to my children, it would have to be The Velveteen Rabbit. It is such a sweet story.

    Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
    The Beast in the Bathtub

    I have 6 kids, so bedtimes are a bit scattered. But we homeschool so our reading time is after lunch just before the littles’ naptime!

  290. We have read to our daughter every night before bed since she was a baby. We have so many favorites over the years but we still love The Going to Bed Book, Five in the Bed, One Little Duck, any Disney stories and princess books.

  291. When I was younger, my favorite book was definitely Corduroy! I would ask for my parents to read it to me over and over again. Hope I win!

  292. My 7 yr old daughter’s favorite books to read right now are the Captain Underpants series and Avatar The Last Airbender books. We curl up at night in her bed and read the book of her choice from the series, but while we are homeschooling we curl up on the couch with a snack and take turns reading to each other. She has a little bit of difficulty because she is autistic and has some speech disabilities, but she has done a great job in just the last 6 months of improving!!!! We are go blessed and so very proud of her

  293. I love reading The Carrot Seed to my daughter before bedtime. It was one of my DH’s favorites as a child and it was one of the first that my daughter could finish the phrases to. It’s also a lovely story.

  304. One of my favorite books to read to my children is David Wiesner’s Flotsam. I discovered it this summer at the library. It is a book without words, so you basically make up the story from your own imagination. I love the way the children remind me parts of the story I might have left out. I sometimes elaborate and sometimes forget what I elaborated on the time before. I love all books by David Wiesner. To limit my favorite children’s book to only one is absolute TORTURE! My son sat for over 200 books this last summer. We are a book loving family! πŸ˜‰ Crossing my fingers! Merry Christmas!

    We like to read at bedtime of course, but also while folding laundry, coloring maps or writing copywork. My children love to hear the sound of books read aloud while they do anything that does not require much thought.

  508. What a great cause and a great giveaway. Childhood literacy is such an important issue. Good for you for rallying behind this. We read every night before bed, and at random other times. This month, our favorite book has been “Santa Calls” by William Joyce. My first-grader is really into the Magic Tree House series, although it’s a bit beyond her proficiency. My pre-schooler loves to “read” anything. In an inspired parenting moment earlier this year, we gave our older daughter the opportunity to earn money by reading bedtime stories to her little sister. Not only has she been honing her reading skills, but she learned about earning, saving and spending money. (PS, I suscribe to your RSS).

I love reading/singing Hush Little Ones by John Butler to my babies (and their siblings as they grow). I learned all the words to the lullaby before I had my first so I could sing it to her. The book holds a special place in my heart & the kids too because it’s the baby bedtime book πŸ™‚

  537. Rosemary Morrison says

    My two year old’s sons favorites are anything with trains, trucks, or tractors so we have lots of those. Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel is a good one. My seven year old daughter really enjoyed the Little House in the Big Woods and we are looking forward to the next book in the series.

    My daughter can read very well. She is above the age of me reading to her. Now she reads me the news paper, the bible, blog post and a little of everything else to me. What makes me most proud of her is that she takes time to read to ones that are younger than she is.

  563. Just posted an entry on my blog about your blog. I love coming here for ideas. :0)

  564. I just subscribed via google reader. So excited.

  565. Agree that reading with children is one of the greatest gifts we as parents and teachers can give them. I started reading to mine while still in the womb and continued through the later elementary grades.A favorite place was cuddled up on the bed with lots of pillows. With them being adults now we talk about the books we are all reading. With my childcare we read daily. Again on the pillows.
    I have books available for reading at all times, I give books for gifts.
    I have too many books I enjoy reading over and over and sharing each year to list just one here. My only additional thought is that with all the new quality literature now available for children, we need to remember to include some of the older books too.

  566. While my baby doesn’t have much of an attention span, we try to sneak in a few short books here and there. This fall his favorite book was Duck and Goose. We have books laying around where he can grab them and “read”, I mean “chew” on them. We don’t have a set reading time yet, but we will!

    http://anordstory.blogspot.com/2010/11/infant-literacy.html

  567. I love to read silly books where I can use funny voices, like, A Porcupine Named Fluffy, or Piggy in the Puddle. And although I love reading at any time, reading to a sick child, in my bed, is especially sweet for me.

  568. My favorite story to read to the girls is You are all My Favorite and the girls loved any of the Dr. Seuss books. Bedtime is the best reading time of the day when we are all snugly and warm πŸ™‚

  569. Michaela Walker says

    I posted on my Facebook!

    • Michaela Walker says

      And, my favorite time to read to my daughter is first thing in the morning. We get a stack of books and cuddle on the couch under a blanket. My personal favorite children’s book is Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. This book has been a favorite of mine since kindergarten teacher read it to me!

  570. We love books and cannot narrow it down to just one. We like Goodnight Moon, Katy no Pocket, Snowy Day, Prayer for a Child, Owl Moon, Walking Through the Woods on a Snowy Eve, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Cranberry Thanksgiving, Christmas Day Kitten, etc. We like snuggling in the morning on the couch or in the evening, snuggling on the bed. During the summer, we like to read outside.

  571. We read over breakfast, listen to a longer classic on audio book before rest and again before bed. A favorite – Not A Box!

  572. I just subscribed via Google Reader!

  573. Teresa Crosby says

    We love the Chronicles of Narnia. Thanks for the opportunity!

  574. My kids are old enough now that I don’t read to them, but we all do enjoy good books. My older daughter is reading a book in a series by Melody Carlson, and my younger daughter is currently reading the Harry Potter series.

  575. Right now, my son’s fave book is Marley and the Runaway Pumpkin.” He asked to read it every night. Before bed every night he chooses 3 books to read and we sit in a rocker that has been in my family for about 100 years (no kidding!) that is in his room. I love that time with him! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  576. My toddler and I love to read while snuggling in her bed right before nap time.

  577. I love reading with my daughter right before bedtime. Our bedtime ritual is usally a fun bath, bottle, then turning all “distractions” off to settle down and read a copule of books. I absolutely love it!

  578. Our favorite book (right now) is Snowmen at Night. We read this book everyday and then somehow end up with MORE pictures of what else snowmen might do at night. We (I) love the pictures and the way it carries your imagination to other things that might come alive at night (trees, swimming pools, etc!). We usually don’t read this book at a designated story time because it is one of those books that gets brought to me – “Can you read this NOW, please?!?!?” Love it!
    Thank you for your blog and thank you for this great opportunity!

  579. Favorite children’s books? Harry Potter series for sure. Time my girls and I like to read? In the car, in bed in the morning, in our favorite comfy chairs during pretty much any free minute we have!

  580. My four year old is a book addict! Her current favorites include fairy tales and folk tales like The Three Little Pigs and Cinderella. She also loves the Kipper books by Mick Inkpen. Harry the Dirty Dog has been a perennial favorite here with the classic story and simple pictures. We make time to stop and read anywhere–the sofa, the bed, mommy’s bed, and once in the laundry room while waiting on a load to finish!

    I do enjoy this blog and subscribed to the feed! Thanks for all your creative efforts!

  581. Debbie Allison says

    We have always been a reading family. I loved sharing the Dr. Seuss books, my parent’s read to me,with my children. They would snuggle in my lap or on the couch with their grandparents and share a story. My favorite is Green Eggs and Ham.

    Now 17 and 20 yo, their tastes range from biology and computer science text books to classic literature. And they read in bed every night until I come in and insist they turn out the light.

    Someday I hope to read Green Eggs and Ham to their children.

  582. We grab a stack of books, gather on the couch and read before cuddling the little ones to sleep.

  583. My favorite kids book right now is Skippyjon Jones. I like to send my husband in to read it to the kids and hide around the corner to listen to him get tongue-tied! So cute!

    Psst…I use tons of your ideas – thank you!

  584. I love reading to my two boys. One of our favorite series is the Bad Kitty books by Nick Bruel.

  585. I taught second grade before having my boy. It is really hard for me to pick just one favorite kids book. We read before bed and any time we want to during the day.

  586. I like to read to my kids the minute we get back from the library! We huddle up on the landing of the stairs & read!

  587. Been reading to both our kids since in the belly. Daughter is currently into Seuss and Son loves anything about cars. Thanks for the chance to win an ipad!

  588. There is nothing better than tucking myself in bed with the boys, going under the covers with a flashlight and reading a few books in “the fort”. Good times!

  589. Although my chances of winning are a bit terrible, and I never have won a drawing, I thought since we love books so much I should enter this giveaway.

    My favorite children’s books used to be the Boxcar Children series. My son now loves them, too. We read so much around here both of my older children could read proficiently at age 3. I love this because it helps when I am busy. My daughter (3) is able to sit and read to her little brother. What a help!

    I have five children and our favorite book to read together is Patricia MacLachlans All the Places to Love. If you have never read this, you really need to. The art is amazing (paintings by Mike Wimmer), the story is so sweet. We’ve read this book about a million times and never get tired of it!

  592. A favorite book???? Impossible! We love them all. I enjoy reading with my girls the books my Mom saved from when I was a kid, like “The Happy Man and his Dumptruck” or “The Little Engine that could.” Right now, though, we are enjoying anything with Fancy Nancy in it.

  593. We love the Bear series by Karma Wilson…Bear Snores On started our journey. Followed by Bear Wants More, Bear Feels Sick and Bear Stays Up For Christmas. Beautifully illustrated, rhyming engaging text. 3 to 13 still listens! Thanks for the cahnce to win!

  616. Favorite kids’ book… that’s close to an impossibility. For middle grades, I love Ella Enchanted, I really like Wish for a Fish & A Whale of a Tale for the younger kids. They’re educational but incredibly fun.

    Favorite time and place to read… well, since I’m not a mom yet (baby due in April!) we’ll have to see what happens. But anytime and all the time is likely!

  617. The Adventures of Pippi Longstocking read in front of the wood stove never gets old – especially during the long cold months up here in Alaska! Thanks for the constant inspiration!

  618. It is impossible to choose one favorite book,
    but what about one favorite author?

    Roald Dahl …. he writes with great imagination, subversive wit and with words that will challenge even advanced readers.

    We like to read in bed or before bedtime … or listen to books on tape while the kids are hand-busy drawing or playing with legos.

    I will post this on my facebook too!

  619. our favorite book to read is the beginners bible, i read it to the kids while they eat breakfast at the kitchen table. at lunch we read our favorite library finds. our most favorite book is one with words called “where is the cake?” they have loved it since they were toddlers.

  634. I started buying childrenΒ΄s books when I was a single young woman and never stopped searching for beautiful, inspiring, well written books for kids. Some of our favorites are The Selfish Giant, retold by Fiona Waters and The Fish Who Could Wish. We also read a lot of Anthony Browne books. Kory Paul and Taro Gomi are top in our list too. The list goes on and on. We love books. But mostly, when we go to bed, we create our own crazy silly stories. Even toddler comes up with his own ideas such as: “itΒ΄s raining, itΒ΄s dark, baby cries, mum comes, baby is happy”. Not bad, right?

  637. My children’s favorite books are the ones by Laura Numeroff…all of the “If You Take a Mouse to School” type. They get such a kick out of them. But they both have a huge love of reading so we read constantly in our house…morning, noon and night!

  640. Right now, we’re reading Harry Potter together – on #5 in the series. Old favorites were Frog and Toad series, Junie B. Jones, Ivy and Bean… Sometimes, we read the dictionary for fun, but that’s a completely different story altogether.

    We have four boys, two sets of twins (three yr olds and almost seven yr olds) we read and have read everything from Goodnight Moon to Science/Learning Books. But our favorite, and the one’s we never get tired of, any time of day, are the Dr. Seuss books. They truly are for everyone from 0-100 yrs old.
    Thank you for all of your wonderful ideas.

  681. One of my favorite books is On the Night You Were Born, by Nancy Tillman. A great frugal craft is to make a wall poster with the pictures and words from a favorite book and coat with modge podge to protect and make shiny. The kids love seeing clips from their favorites on the wall and it’s easy to find inexpensive cute books. It makes great wall art! Kids also love to add a bit of their own touches.

  686. love the book “I love you stinky face ” and reading before bedtime.

  687. My daughters love their Little Scholastic picture books. They love looking at the pictures and “teach” me the names of the animals or objects within the books. They are toddlers and still at that age where they want to hold the books themselves and not have me read it to them, or if I do, read some parts quickly because they turn the pages so fast.

    Thanks target for the great giveaway and to frugalfamilyfun too.

  688. We homeschool, so we read ALL THE TIME. In the morning, through lunch, before and after dinner, before bed…. We just went to the library today and checked out 30 books! Picking a favorite is hard but… I’ll go with… Matilda, since it’s the book we are reading right now! πŸ™‚

  689. We love to read at bedtime. Chapter books are becoming the new favorite for our 4 year old. Although the old standbys of Dora, Disney Princess, and Sandra Boynton are fun too. Although, our most favorite books of all are Pinkalicious and all her friends (Purplicious and Goldilicious). What great books to foster a child’s imagination. We all love them!

  690. The Giving Tree…we love to cuddle on the couch and read each night.

  691. LOVE The Hundred Dresses! We love to read anytime, anywhere, but all of us snuggled on my bed is the best.

  697. My favorite children’s book was called Little Popcorn.

  698. Wow, what a great prize! Our favorite book right now is called, Feeding the Sheep, by Leda Schubert, pictures by Andrea U’Ren. The illustrations are bright and happy, the story is simple and elegant. I love reading it, and the kids have great questions with every page flip. We have books in every room, so there’s always some book being read, but our favorite time to read is right before nap and bed because it’s a good activity to wind down.

  699. I love love love The Duchess Bakes a Cake by Virginia Kahl! The rhymes and the rhythm are perfect and it’s a fantastic story. Thanks!

  700. I am a nanny for two little ones. My favorite times to read is whenever the first one up from nap gets a storytime while we are waiting for the other to wake up. Also right before their parents are expected to arrive home. It has a calming influence when they can get pretty wired about Mommy and Daddy coming home.

  701. One of our favorite books for reading aloud is Understood Betsy. My favorite place to read to my six kids is in the living room where everyone can get comfortable and get lost in the story.

  702. My favorite time to read with my daughter is right before bed. It’s part of our routine, and a great way to relax and wind down after a busy day. My daughter’s current favorites are Fancy Nancy books, which certainly do expose her to a wide variety of new vocabulary!

  703. Our favorite book right now is Mama Panya’s Pancakes. We love reading in a cozy corner in the playroom!

  706. As a preschool teacher, my favorite children’s books are the If You Give A _______ A ________ series by Laura Numeroff. The stories are cute and are adorably illustrated. We do tons of activities with these books and make up our own stories to go along with the themes. I have fond memories of reading these books to my own children.

  707. I follow on facebook.

  708. Just today we discovered the Paper Bag Princess. We aren’t really a princess household, so this is a pretty big deal. We also love love love Napping House. We read all day long, have our book box in the living room, have two boxes in the play room and shelves in our little gal’s bedroom. Being readers ourselves, it was very important to us to raise a reader. We think we are succeeding!

  709. I am a twitter follower.

  710. I tweeted about your awesome giveaway!

  711. Andrea Karjack says

    My favorite book is ‘Saying Good Bye to Lulu’. Death is one of the tough topics to talk about with children, but it’s for sure that sooner or later they will have to deal with it. I like this book as it helps parents and children deal with the loss of a family pet. It’s a wonderful read. : )

  712. Wow. It’s so hard to choose a favorite children’s book. Can I name 3? These days its…. 1)How I Built the Boogle House 2)The Little House 3)McElligot’s Pool

    We typically read for 30 minutes everyday when we get home from work/school and again for about 30 minutes at bedtime — plus other random times in between.

  713. I subscribe in my Google Reader. Love it!

  714. Hmm…favorite book – I agree, that’s a tough one. We’re liking Stella Queen of the Snow and Snowman at Night right now. I love reading with my guys anytime and anyplace. They love to just randomly pick out books and bring them to me to read….which usually turns into 5 or 6 books and some nice cuddle time.

  715. We really enjoy Max Lucado children books about the Weemicks.

  716. My favorite book to read with my son is Fox in Socks. It always makes us laugh. We read at bedtime, and whenever we need him to sit still long enough to eat something.

  717. Just added you to my Google Reader. Looking forward to reading the posts and getting some activity ideas.

  718. My children will read anywhere. Besides the usual before bed and couch, they love to read in the bathroom. I will find one child on the big toilet and one on the kiddy toilet with a stack of books between the two of them.

  719. We love Princess Peepers by Pam Calvert! And we read everywhere… the couch, the family chair, at the kitchen table, in the car, on the deck…

  720. Erica Christensen says

    Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, snuggled under the blanket in Mum’s bed. We also love Cynthia Rylant’s Mr. Putter and Tabby books while we eat popcorn.

  721. LOVE reading with my kiddos…ages 3 and 10 mos. We read lots during the day, but just before bedtime (right after baths) is my favorite. There’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with freshly bathed babies! We LOVE Max Lucado books – especially You Are Special!

  722. I love to snuggle up with my three-year-old daughter (on her bed at bed time or on the couch other times) and read her stories. She loves reading! Right now, her favorite book is a collection of nursery rhymes, most of which she has committed to memory. My favorite book to read to her right now is ‘Twas the Night before Christmas.

  723. I subscribe with Google Reader. Thanks for the great ideas!

  724. My daughter’s current favorite is Where the Wild Things Are.

  726. Stephanie p says

    My favorite book is My Many Colored Days by Dr. Suess. My two boys love hearing it and we usually sit in my youngests bottom bunk all cozy together

  727. We love snuggling in bed and reading just before the lights get turned off for the night…the “2 books before bed” always turns into a much bigger stack before the lights are off for the night.

  728. Wow! What a generous giveaway. I like to read to my kids anytime, but our ‘designated’ time each day is between lunch and naps, on the couch. My favorite book?? I don’t know where to start–Eric Carle’s Hungry Caterpillar or many of his others; Sandra Boynton’s books, especially Barnyard Dance; Richard Scarry; I could go on and on…

  729. I also subscribe to your feed. πŸ™‚

  730. Even as an adult I still can’t get enough classic Grimm’s Fairy Tales…

  731. We read a lot of books at our house so it’s hard to choose just one favorite, but right now I’d have to say we like Possum’s Harvest Moon a lot! We love reading at bedtime or anytime! It’s exciting to see our kids enjoying books so much at an early age too!

  732. I have 2 boys ages 1 and 3 who love cuddling up and reading a good book..the 1 year old loves any kind of book that involves noises or things to touch or dinosaurs (I heard Santa is bringing one that has all three yay!) The 3 year old’s favorite book right now is The Seals on The Bus..he loves to help read it and make all the noises. We normally have reading time when big brother comes home from school, right before little brother’s nap time.

  733. We love to read all day long! Bedtime is a must, we also like to read during the baby’s nap.

  734. We read for at least an hour every night before bedtime. We read at least one picture book for each little kid, a “fun” chapter book, like Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys, a historical fiction chapter book, and a Bible story. We recently ready Dr. Dolittle, and are currently working on Mrs. Pigglewiggle.

  735. We read all the time, but our never-miss time before bed each night. One of our favorites is _On The Day You Were Born_.

  765. Oh! Am I too late? I LOVED the Pokey Little Puppy (Golden Book). πŸ™‚

  766. Shelley Dean says

    Reading is a fav at our house. We do it throughout the day but the best is at bedtime. They run to get their pjs on, brush their teeth, and each get to pick a story. My husband often reads “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” with a scottish accent and we all love it! My favorite time of the day!

So much so that her gifts from us this Christmas include a cozy beanbag chair and ottoman a collection of Magic School Bus Books and a new daily read bible. This ipad would be such a blessing to solidify her new love for reading!

  770. Megan Porter says

    It is so hard to pick a favorite book! If I had to choose though, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Goodnight Moon, and Green Eggs and Ham from when our children were babies. All five of us squeeze into our king size bed and read at night πŸ™‚ It is my favorite time of the day!

  771. Megan Porter says

    Just posted on Facebook too!

  772. My favorite children’s book is Blueberries for Sal and I love to read that one and many others on our living couch with my daughters on either side of me.

  773. Our fave time to read is when daddy can be with us before bedtime. We gather a stack and try to read as much as we can before our allotted bedtime. My son’s favorite book is Richard Scarry’s Cars and Trucks and Things That Go book. I love that man’s imagination. Its so much fun to read and find Gold bug among the 70 or so pages.

  774. I love reading any book my kids pick at bedtime. I love that the last thing we do every day is to read together.

    We read every day before Sweet Pea goes down for her nap.

  800. Danielle B. says

    As a children’s librarian (without any kids of my own yet), my favorite time to read to kids is when I do storytime at my library. It is so much fun to see the kids connect with a story. These days we are getting big laughs with any books by Mo Willems and Jan Thomas!

  801. I love to read to my kids, especially before bedtime.

    My daughter (age 3 1/2) loves Winnie the Pooh Stories from the Hundred Acre Wood. She also loves to read Rufus Comes Home, about the bear with diabetes. She was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was 2 and received this book & stuffed bear from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation after we left the hospital. She loves to read the story so that she knows she’s not the only one with diabetes.

    My son (age 1 1/2) loves Sandra Boynton (Personal Penguin, Snuggle Puppy)
    Byron Barton (My Car), and Karma Wilson (The Bear Snores On).

  814. We love where the wild things are. When the kids want to read we sit on the couch and snuggle up with a book.

  815. Ohhh, drool! We read while we drive a LOT! Daddy drives, Momma reads! πŸ™‚

  816. Before bed, my son picks out two books for my husband to read as “nightime books” and he leaves two by the bed for me to read as “morning books”. There is nothing better than a three year old coming out of his room with a smile saying” ready for our morning books?” He still asks with the same enthusiasm as when we started this two years ago…..a lovely way to start the day! We love so many books….but a current seasonal favorite is The Donkey’s Dream by Barbara Berger.

    A great book idea…we keep seasonal books on a seperate shelf and bring them into the living room shelf on a rotating basis. It is so exciting to see old favorites come out each season!

  817. We love Sandra Boynton books around here and we read them to help us settle down and redirect.

  818. My favorite book is The Giving Tree. I still cry when I read it. My favorite place to read to my daughter (she is 3) is in my bed surrounded by blankets and pillows. WE love to snuggle. Right now, we are reading The Little House on the Prairie. I loved that series!

    Our favorite place to read is actually at the dinner table! It keeps him eating at a casual pace, engages discussion, and discourages him from turning on the TV! Second favorite place is anywhere I can plop down so he can sit on my lap πŸ˜‰

  823. I love Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. I read to my 3 year old before nap and nighttime in his rocking chair and then at night, I lay down in one of my twins’ beds and read a chapter from any number of books that we like to read (Indian in the Cupboard, Tom Sawyer, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the list goes on and on!)

  831. I love reading Goodnight Moon and Goodnight Gorilla to my boys. Cuddling up with them and a good book after bathtime, when they are all snuggled comfy in their pj’s, is a little slice of heaven to me!

  832. Our favorite place to read used to be a recliner rocker. The kids got to big for all 3 of us to sit there, so we moved to the couch. But our NEW Fav place is my King size bed. We snuggle under our covers and read whatever tickles our fancy. Then they are nice and relaxed and ready for bed. I have preteens, but they still love mom to read to them. Their never to old to be read to.

  833. I posted on my Facebook, and I receive your emails, but not sure if that is following your RSS feed or not? hmmm

  834. When I was a child I loved a lot of books, but 2 that have stood out for some time are “Socks for Supper” by Jack Kent and “The Runaway Road” by Stanley Mack.

  835. I love reading to my kiddos anytime. Reading works wonders after dinner on cold, snowy evenings when the kids are tired. We love the Mo Williams Pigeon books – so simple and so much fun (my kids are 3 1/2 and 2). Thanks for offering such a great give-away!

  836. Faith Johnston says

  839. We love to read after lunch. We pile pillows around the living room floor and get comfortable. Right now our favorite books are any of the Fancy Nancy books. My daughter is even wanting to take French classes.

  845. Hi Valerie!
    What a wonderful time of year to have a generous contest like this! I am a teacher and (of course) am infactuated with reading. I teach the elementary age and have a nook in my classroom called the “reading tree”. It is a shelf of books next to a “canopy” in the form of a tree. It is a special spot where my kids can go to have some quiet time and enjoy a good book. Reading has always been a passion in my classroom and at home with my family. Our book collection has become our library. I am so glad our kids can grab a book whenever they can. And now with the use of technology, they can read one on the go even when we forgot to bring books! Nothing sparks the heart of a parent more than watching their child learn to read (like my 5 year old), and then read to learn (such as my 10 year old). I want to thank you and Target for reaching out and instilling the love of learning to our children!
    Always learning, Tammy D.
    p.s. I did tweet and FB about you! πŸ˜‰

  846. At the minimum, my preschoolers are read 1 book before nap and before bed bedtime. They are also read at least one book every school day at circle time (I’m their preschool teacher, so I know this is happening!). My oldest is starting to read so we also take 5 minutes each day to read one short phonetic reader together.

  847. Our favorite place to read is on the love seat. Currently my children are in love with the Amelia Bedila and Magic Treehouse.

  854. Just recently, my daughter and I just completed the Wizard of Oz. We both loved it. The movie has ALWAYS been her favorite, so it’s nice that she embraced the book as well. We normally read together at the end of our homeschool day. We snuggle on the couch and read together. Sometimes, she’ll read to me and other times I read to her. It’s such a peaceful and sweet time for us.

    My kids favorite book is “I love you stinky face” I have been reading to my 5 year old practically since she was born and then came my 3 year old. They both love it! Our favorite place to read is my bed at nap time and bed time.

    Hi there,
    We all love Goodnite Moon. From the 29 yr old down to the 6 yo.

    I often read to my 9yo son with autism who is nonverbal in the bathtub where he will actually sit and stay for a longer time and attention span.

    I just learned of the awesome programming available for Ipad for those with no verbal ability, including communication and educational programs designed for those with autism. Thanks for hosting this blog and the giveaway. Just thinking Willy Wonka here.:)

    Blessings,
    Michele Petit

  879. I love to read educational books to my 3 year old son. He just can’t get enough of books about trucks, trains and construction equipment!

    We love Good Night Moon and all Dr. Seuss books.

  881. I love to read to my daughter, Emma, whenever she asks. We usually read at bedtime, sometimes during breakfast, and sometimes in the car. We don’t really have a set time, we just enjoy reading! Some of our favorite books are, Where the Wild Things Are, Where’s my Teddy, Rainbow Magic, Magic Tree House, and anything involving horses.

  903. I love to read to with kids at night before they go to bed. After a busy day, it gives us a few peaceful moments together. Our favorite books are β€œGood Night Moon” and β€œGuess How Much I Love You” (even though they are older now, they still like to go back to those favorites). I have been reading books to them since they were very young.
    My kids like to read as well and they have a reading program at school which encourages them to keep up on reading every month.

  904. I have two children who love to read any time of day. Our favorite times are just before naptime and just before bed in the evening – when everyone is cozy, relaxed and ready for a good story. Our current favorites are “I am a Bunny” by Ole Risom (illustrated by Richard Scarry) and “Harold and the Purple Crayon” by Crockett Johnson.

  905. I love reading to my girls and an Ipad would be awesome!

I remember spending all of my time in the library in elementary school. When the others were at recess, I snuck over to the library and just got lost in those books. The one I remember most is “Go, Dog. Go!”

  920. My son and I read at bedtime in his room. We were reading The Diary of A Wimpy Kid series. Now we’ve moved on to the Legend of Ga’hoole series.

  943. My favorite children’s book is The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Our family loves to read. We spend a lot of time at various appointments for my son, so an Ipad would be a wonderful resource for reading with my children on the go.

  944. My favorite children’s book is one from my childhood – “Snuggle Bunny” – our copy is falling apart from all of the readings it has been through. I love it! Our favorite time and place to read has to be snuggled up together on the sofa right before bed – and also right before quiet time in the afternoon. I love these times with my children!

  945. Have 2 elementary aged boys and I love reading Harry Potter to them at bedtime. We also enjoy all of Jan Brett’s stories-The Mitten, Gingerbread Baby, The Hat, Christmas Trolls…the list goes on.

  946. Bible Story Books.

  947. Following you on Twitter @mommasreviews

  997. through the years their have been many favorite books read to my children, read by themselves and listened to in the car. we love suprises and have often been suprised by books we didn’t expect to be so great. we still read to our children even though they are all in high school. i now give books and encourage reading to the families that i work with.

  998. Thank you so much, Valerie. You just followed me on Twitter so I went to your Twitter to see who you were and that led me to your blog and here. I will follow you back πŸ™‚ And I am posting a comment to enter the iPad contest from Target. My two passions are children’s picture books and uplifting young children, so it is hard to choose only ONE favorite…THE LITTLE HOUSE by Virginia Lee Burton, I guess, because that was the first book I ever owned and it opened an amazing world for me. I’ve actually just had a book for parents of preschoolers published that pinpoints 100 picture books every young child should hear.

  999. And now I tweeted about the contest and also posted it on my Facebook. πŸ™‚
    Good luck to all who entered!

  1000. I love the book “There are Rocks in my Socks said the Ox to the Fox” but sadly it is out of print. Great book for beginning readers and just plain fun to read aloud, too! We do most of our reading together before bed, but really any time of the day is a great time to read!

  1007. My favorite place to read with my kids is in our study on the futon and we love to read any books that deal with adventures like Jotham’s Journey , which we read during this past Advent πŸ™‚

  1008. My kids enjoy anything from Richard Scarry and Dr Suess. We enjoy reading right before bedtime after the toys have been picked up.

  1009. Hi love reading with my son on the couch where we have really good light or sunlight streaming through the window. We were doing school work at a neighboring library and the librarian asked me how she – they could get more homeschoolers to use their facilities. I told her natural sunlight, open quiet friendly spaces and cool reference books that I don’t have at home.

    I love reading history with my 11 year old. We are on the Middle ages at the moment. It is really hard to get original texts that are readable for that age period. Yes, I’ve been to all the reading – literary curriculum websites but I don’t like buying and storing all those books. I love the idea of electronic texts!!

    If someone is doing marketing research for those e-readers here is my vote for what should be available:

    1. Not the same stuff they sell at Barnes and Noble.
    2. Cool reference materials.
    3. Cool free historical text.
    4. Classic free stories.

    My favorite books as a child were Socks by Beverly Cleary, Call of the Wild and White Fang by Jack London, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle, and the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.

    I also loved classics like The Swiss Family Robinson, My Side of the Mountain and Treasure Island. I share my love of reading with my son whenever I can. Right now he’s obsessed with the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. I’ve always read to him- when he was younger a story or two (or three) was part of our bed time routine. I’ve loved watching him grow from someone picking out letters and words to a fluent self guided reader. I can’t wait to share some of my old favorites with him!

  1053. We love to read! Our Favorite right now is Gunrunner Moon( it the one we are reading aloud together!) but we have so many favs, we also into mysteries, fantasy and classics. Our favorite place to read is right after lunch on the big comfy couch!

  1054. I am a single mother with a 4 year old son. We read a book every night before bedtime. His favorite book is a golden book called “Little Bear” . He is now getting to the point where he will finish the sentences as I read them. I can’t wait until he can read to me!

  1055. Over the years I shared many great books with my children we would read before bedtime or any quiet time that we would find. Some of our favorites included Thelma (the bear), Little House on the Prarie, Beezus and Ramona, and the list would go on and on

    My favorite children’s book right now is Goodnight Moon, but it’s hard to choose since my daughter (3 years old) loves books and has MANY. We read everyday and she loves to “read” to me, teacher-style…holding each page up above her head while telling me all about it. C lost her hearing last year and now uses cochlear implants to hear…getting to listen to us read to her and more importantly, having her talk to us about her books is a blessing that exceeds anything else. We could really use the IPad, as lots of apps have been developed for speech therapy and we can’t use them right now. πŸ™ Blessings! Leah

  1141. As a mother of 5 children, 4 of which are in school are reading is done in the evennings during homework time. Two of my children have to be read with so this is when we read to the three younger kids. My two older boys read on there own and one reads constantly. He loves all books in the Middle school level. My second son reads sorts books. We would use an IPAD to death.

  1147. blueberries for Sal is today’s favorite along with a cookbook- we love to read anywhere- but esp on the couch and in their room on the floor before bed πŸ™‚

    My favorite book to read to my children is Goodnight Moon. I started reading it to my daughter when she was in my belly and I cried when I read it to my littlest baby just a few months ago. Choosing a favorite time to read is a tuff one! Since I have to choose I will pick before bed because that is when all three of us and sometimes Dad (which makes 4) can cuddle up together, close our eyes, and pretend we are leaving to go to a whole new world!

  1149. I’m now following you on twitter (danaedi)

  1150. It will be hard to pick just one favorite book, there are sooo many good ones. I think I will say that my favorite book is “Oh the places you’ll go” by Suess. We read a few books every night before my son’s bedtime. We also read during the day when we can, but the bedtime is a for sure time. All three of us get on my sons bed, then read whatever stories he’s picked, say prayers, & then it’s bedtime. Doesn’t get any better than that:-)

  1162. My favorite childhood book was the Babysitters Club series. Whenever my kids pick up and book and come to ask me if I could read for them is my favorite time to read with them. Seeing them get so into reading excites me as well. And then I stop to let them read back to me by observing the picture so an enriching time.
