Name that Character!

Our kids LOVE to read! Just looking at a picture of a book character brings a smile to my face! I remember how I would sit with 2 kids on my lap, one hanging over my shoulder while rocking the baby, as we would read about Frog and Toad. There were books that made us laugh out loud like Mrs. Piggle Wiggle or taught a lesson about being brave like, Ira Sleeps Over.  One year my brother Nels gave us the Complete Adventures of Curious George. We read that book until it fell apart!  Picture books are a delight for young children (and old ones, too) and are stepping stones to a lifetime love of reading.

Name that Character!

Can you name these books just by the characters? Most are classic tales and some are just our family favorites.
