W&D Children’s Book Round-up: 25 of Our Favorites!


The thing that no one tells you about having kids is how fun all the books, toys, and gear can be for YOU, the parent, aunt, and grandparents. August is a big reader which has spurred the bad (and good) habit of owning a rather large collection of hilarious, beautiful and touching children’s books. Below is a list of my personal favorites, all of which August has come to enjoy as well. If you love design, a subtle nod to parents who have read said book for the 100th time, or you need someone else to explain why it’s embarrassing when they throw a tantrum in Target, this list is for you. Which children’s book are you loving right now?

    Hey there. The link to ‘This is not a book’ leads to an airtable.com login screen. I wasn’t sure if that was what you intended.
