The Summer of 100 Books

I have a goal for this summer, and that is that we will read 100 books as a family. In order to accomplish this goal, I went ahead and made a list of 100 picture books that I want to read with Hannah and Paige. After consulting some of my favorite reading blogs, Amazon and Goodreads lists and some of the award winner websites here it is. Of course I included some Dr. Seuss books, Kevin Henkes, Mo Willems (my favorite), and other familiar authors, and some CLASSIC books (Blueberries for Sal, Goodnight Moon, The Runaway Bunny) but like I said, I'm looking for books that can become family favorites and aren't necessarily always on the list.

Anyway, here is my list so far. If you have any suggestions PLEASE add to my list! I don't care if we go far beyond 100 books but we need to get our 100 books in!
