Top Five Fridays - Audrey Wood

I was first introduced to Audrey Wood during my babysitting years. Her books were often found on the bookshelves of the kids I used to watch and it was love at first read for me. These books are also a favorite of my two, especially my youngest and so I'm featuring Audrey Wood on my youngest’s read picks week for Top Five Friday. These books are a family affair as her books are illustrated by either herself, her husband, Don or her son, Bruce. What a talented family.

Here's my top five Audrey Wood books:

1. Piggies

2. Napping House

3. Alphabet Adventure

4. Ten Little Fish

5. The Deep Blue Sea

I can't wait to read her latest book due to come out soon, Piggy Pie Po.

Which 'five' Audrey Wood's books make your list?
