Hyrum and I love the library. We go for Story Time. We go just to get books. We go to play. We go for special activities. It's a good place for a mom and her boy to go when they want to get out of the house. Yesterday we went and Hyrum was beyond excited about the bugs, beetles, and crickets they had preserved in little plastic cubes. He could have looked at them all day.
Over the last month or so, I've been collecting a list of some of Hyrum's favorite books. We always check out three to four books to bring home. Most often, I just find these books by skimming the book shelf, but that can be a pain and I don't always pick out ones he likes. So, I thought that some of you might appreciate a toddler book list.
