Harry's Favorite Books

My twin boys are very different! Harry (5) never stops talking, but can be very scripted. He is a sweet, happy little boy who loves animals, space, and anything touching on fantasy or the supernatural. In direct contrast to his twin, Harry is sensory seeking and can't get enough input. Harry was an early reader and is very motivated by books in general.

If any of this sounds like your child, Harry's book list may be for you! While I recommend many books on this blog, these have been Harry's favorites, spanning age 2-5.
