1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up Ages 0-3

This is a project I've been working on since 2015. I've been gradually reading my daughter the books mentioned in 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up by Julia Eccleshare. This is a really difficult list to work through as many titles are simply not available in English. For instance, Fly, Little Bird is only available as Vola, Uccellino! and Alvin Says Goodnight doesn't seem to actually exist anywhere in any language. It should be Albin sager Godnatt but I couldn't find it under that title either. Julian the Rabbit is actually Julio Bunny here in the US. A few things like that made some of these books really hard to find. At the time, Little Spook's Baby Sister was really expensive, so we didn't end up reading that one. If you are interested in working through this list, it is well worth it to buy Eccleshare's book. I keep notes on the books in the margins and it's something I plan to give to my daughter when she's an adult. It will be a keepsake of the reading we did together.
