enduring classic board books

Claire's all-time favorite from the Top 10 Board Book List is Good Night, Gorilla.

She often refers to herself as a gorilla and me (dad) as the zookeeper: "The gorilla is being held by the zookeeper," or, "The zookeeper has a mustache."

In second place is the Big Red Barn, but all the others are quite distant runners-up. A new favorite of mine is Each Peach Pear Plum by the Ahlberg team. Each Peach, in common with Gorilla, is illustrated by the author, which seems to give it that certain extra special touch.
