An Awesome Book

When I first found out I was pregnant, the baby-preparation experience I looked forward to the most was not decorating the nursery or picking out the baby clothes. It was building the baby’s first library.

As a avid lover of books, I absolutely cannot wait to introduce my child to all the books I loved as a child. Where the Wild Things Are. The Giving Tree. The Velveteen Rabbit. The list goes on and on.

(And if my child takes after J and does not like reading much, I’ll just DIE. DIIIEEEEE, I tell you!)

Yesterday, Wired’s GeekDad introduced me to another book I must add to the list: An Awesome Book by Dallas Clayton.

I immediately clicked on over to read the book online, and was impressed beyond words. What parent – what any sane person – would not want to gift their loved ones a fun, easy-to-read book that fosters creativity and encourages the reader to think BIG and outside the box?

Yes, I have already read the entire book online. But I will definitely buy a copy before Tater Tot arrives…and you should too! Why? Because the author will give away a copy for every copy that is purchased through the Awesome World Foundation.

What books did you love growing up? Which books are on your list of must-reads for children?
