The books you must read to your little ones

This is a list that I'm putting together (with help from the Smile FM listeners...) What are the books that Jenn (and all other moms and dads of really little children) absolutely must read to their kids?

Of course, Bible stories are at the top of the list... but here are some more ideas:

Peter Rabbit
The Chronicles of Narnia
I love you forever
Curious George
The very hungry caterpillar
One fish two fish red fish blue fish
Green Eggs and Ham
Hop on Pop
Good Night Moon
Princess & the kiss

And Faron's personal favorite "Everyone Poops" (There really is a childrens book with this title!)

Email your ideas to diceman@smile.fm
