As a Pre-K teacher, I would definitely have to recommend anything by Eric Carle, Click Clack Moo & the sequels, Bear Snores On, and If You Give a Mouse a Cookie & the sequels.

I just remembered the Ping stories - they're probably a bit old for her, but good ones to keep in mind: http://www.amazon.com/Story-about-Re...8390767&sr=8-1

If you can get it there..please see if you can buy "Possum Magic" by Mem Fox. It has been a best seller here for years. I think the top selling book ever for children. It is a lovely book with gorgeous illustrations.

I also love Richard Scarry's work because there is SO much to explore with a child on every page.

Gosh..the Ping books..now THAT takes me back

And Peter Rabbit books are often lovely. And for kids snuggly in bed and being read to..Wind In The Willows can be magic also.

And who could forget House at Pooh Corner with Pooh, Tigger, Rabbit, Eyeore....

My kids are teenagers, but if I remember correctly there's a book called Marcella and the Moon. Very cute and about ducks (I think) Wish I could dig it out to be sure.

Oh, someone beat me to the Click Clack Moo book. I personally love that book I don't have kids, but my husband has an uncanny ability to pick out awesome children's books for his niece and nephews. He loves the Eric Carle and Richard Scarry books. We both kinda grew up with those too.

Check out some books by Simms Taback. He's written some award winning books for older children, but I recently found that he wrote some animal books aimed at younger ones.

Dr. Seuss does board books, too, and those were about the only ones I could stand reading over and over (and over) to my boys.
