Children's Picture Books

There are so many wonderful children books out there.  My oldest son was speech delayed.  I learned from speech therapists the importance of reading to your children.  Not just reading, I already did that, but in pointing out pictures and identifying them.  It's amazing the difference that a great picture book can make on the development of a child.
