For Christmas, my husband and I tried out the “want, need, wear, read” gift giving method for our kids. While shopping for my kids’ gifts I found myself a little lost while looking for children’s books; there are SO MANY! What books do moms like me and their kids love?? I really needed some recommendations, so I decided to turn to the followers of our She Picks! Facebook group for help and man, did they pull through for me! This list of books comes straight from them; these are their kids’ FAVORITE books! I found some really great books from their suggestions and I hope you will too!
