Examples of Good Books

I was typing this list in another post and it was getting too long, so I thought I'd start it here. But basically there are a lot of books in the world. Many of which are totally empty of value and character. I didn't realize how many garbage books there were that have no purpose except to take away your attention and time from other more awesome books you could've been reading. are some good ones I like--definitely not comprehensive--just to whet the appetite. If you want more of my books I like and reviews...check out my Goodreads shelves...I've got a ton on there.

The Adventures of Polo (basically a wordless comic book)
Quest & Journey (adventures that left my son asking me to "read" it again)
The Snowman (a favorite from England)
Suzy Lee

Not a Box
Rabbit/Duck (illustration looks like a rabbit, or a duck, depending how you see it)
