Kid’s Corner: Picture books for young children that parents will actually enjoy reading.

I have always believed that instilling a love of reading at an early age is fundamental. My husband and I have read at least one book to our daughter every night since she was a few days old. But I have to admit that there have been some books that are so mind-numbingly awful that each time I read them, I feel a part of my brain dying (e.g. some of the fairy tale adaptations for little kids). Even the good books can get tiring after the 100th time. There was a time when the mere mention of Good Night Moon was enough to evoke nightmares (of giant frolicking kittens wearing mittens, chasing a red balloon and eating a bowl of mush).
