1. Goodnight Moon:
Goodnight Moon is so timeless, so classic, I feel that describing it to you here would be comparable to describing Mr. Spock to a convention of trekkies. Honestly, this book is just as good today as it was when it was first published in 1947. Comforting and cheery, this rhyming bedtime story is a must-have for every family!
A bouncy bear, a boisterous boy, and oodles of berries make this book better than a trip to the amusement park (almost!). You’ll have a sing-songy, colorful, and giggle-til-you-drop good time with this Chinaberry favorite.
3. Miss Rumphius:
If I had to choose one book that said CHINABERRY in a picture book form, it would likely be this one. I truly cannot give it enough praise. Imagine a girl whose only dream is to travel the world and whose only wish is to leave it a more beautiful place. Now see her grow to fulfill both. Just wait till you see how she does it!
