Re: Favorite early readers?

If you like to be silly I would recommend Robert Munsch books. I read them to my almost 3 year old at night. I'm a little worried at his age he may take them at face value and I may be encouraging more craziness! But seriously at 5 hopefully the reader will understand these books are meant to be silly. There is some language that I change and habits, like calling a pig dumb, just an example. Oh bother doesn't sound like I am trying to sell you on these! I just remember reading them as a young adult and finding them awesome. But I do not condone calling pigs dumb and it is hard to explain this to an almost 3 yr old!!
ETA: The Paperbag Princess in the best Munsch book ever.
I agree go to the library and check out the early readers or ask the librarians for suggestions.

when she is older;
The Fairy Chronicles series. The fairy books are chapter books geared towards older kids, but all the fairies are earth-conscious kids and become fairies in order to help solve a problem w/ the earth. It's all fantasy obviously, but they don't litter, recycle and reuse everything possible, etc. They're fun books for older girls
