Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney - A little bunny asks his mom "guess how much I love you?"

The Biggest Kiss by Joanna Walsh- Sweet, great pictures, a nice simple book for the theme.

Love Waves by Rosemary Wells- Sweet and charming book split into tow parts. The first part mom goes to work at the cafe and in the later part father goes to work. A nice story about love and connections while parents are off to work.

Won't You Be My Hugaroo? by Joanne Ryder - Friends go through all the different kinds of hugs you can give and get.

Yes Day by Amy Krouse Rosenthal- What if for one day all your parents said yes to your every request? The result is a fun to read for parents and kids. From eating ice-cream to staying up late kids will appreciate the humor. When the main character asks if he can do something have the audience yell yes. Then turn the page and ask them to describe the scene as a result of them telling the little boy "yes."

Come Along, Daisy! by Jane Simmons - A duckling lingers behind it's mother at the pond to explore the world around her.

Owl Babies by Martin Waddell- It is often hard to find a good storytime book that has a more traditional narrative (beginning, middle/climax, and a resolution). This story fills that niche very nicely. Wonderful bold and detailed illustrations.

Little Owl Lost by Chris Haughton- Really wonderful illustrations and a cute story. Similar in plot to "Are You My Mother?" but with a little more humor.

The Cuddle Book by Guido Van Genechten - Simple text, big bold illustrations. Shows how different animals cuddle with their loved ones. Very sweet.

Hello! Is this Grandma? by Ian Whybrow- Fold out pages and wacky illustrations make this a very funny book to read. It will keep your kids entertained and guessing who is on the other end of the phone.
