Parents, you’re about to embark on a new adventure.
We know that’s an awfully tall order when your kids are still toddlers.
But this week, New York magazine decided to take the next step by inviting us to help them out by picking their favorite books from our children’s library.
And while the list of books included in the challenge is a bit limited, we decided to keep it as long as possible, and we’re glad to share some of our favorites with you.
So, head over to the New York Mag to pick out the best books in your children’s room and let us know what books you’ve picked.
Here are the books we selected for our top 10, in alphabetical order: 1.
