After much research and reading, and countless bedtime stories for my own little girls, I can help. Here are 8 fantastic children’s authors. Anything by these authors will be agreat gift!
1. Mo Willems
Must read: “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus”
Price: $10.19 at amazon.com
Mo Willems is my daughter’s, and my own, very favorite children’s author. It’s obvious from his writing that he has a daughter of his own, and he writes with a joy and sweetness that’s rare, even among those who also love writing for children. His Pigeon and Knuffle Bunny series are our favorites, but we also adore all of his other wonderful charactersand series.
