Cuddle up and read a good book together

There are quite a few children’s series of books you can find on market. For the longest time our favorite was Franklin the Turtle created by Paulette Bourgeois (Writer) and Brenda Clark (illustrator). This was one book I could sit down and read to my son with minimal squirming. I guess because he got two Franklin DVDs for Christmas when he was 18 months and got to see the character in both digital form and book form.
My mother who was excited to have a grandchild because it gave her an excuse to watch her favorite characters fostered the love for Franklin in his heart. I went out an bought Franklin Goes to the Hospital, when my son was having his tonsils and adenoids removed. This story helped prepare my almost 3 year old for a very scary experience. We read that same story now and he tells me proudly how he was like Franklin and has the stickers put on his chest too. 
Just recently I started introducing a new series. It wasn’t his number one pick at first but lately has been getting picked almost as often as Franklin. This series is Stan and Jan Berenstain, The Berenstain Bears. I love this series because we can talk about topics later and relate them to the story. Like my stepdaughter and I talked about good and bad habits after reading The Berenstain Bears and the Bad Habit. 
I also love reading them Clifford the Big Red Dog by  Norman Bridwell, Arthur by Marc Brown, and Little Critter by  Mercer Mayer and some are also co-written by his wife Gina Mayer. 
What children’s series do you and your children enjoy? I’d love to hear from you and get new ideas 🙂
Have a great day!
