Good children's books to pull inspiration from?

I want to do a bit more research into children's books by actually buying some and looking through them. What are some really good ones you recommend me to get in order to get a better understanding of them and how they function as a genre? I only want to buy top-rated or best sellers.

I like Robert Munsch, as his books are classic! They feature simple stories and events a child can relate to and memorize and enjoy reading.

I also look at classic fairy tales, which to gives you a story that has a message for both the reader and parent time to engage in the book.

There was one written about a child, the name of the book is Don't touch my hair! It was about allowing people to not touch or say words that would hurt,

for self-esteem and to set boundaries.

I would recommend these three: 

  • Wehre The Wild Things Are - By Maurice Sendak
  • Goodnight Mooon - By Margaret Wise
  • The Snowy Day - By Ezra Jack

These three authors have some charm that only my 6 year old daughter understands. She can read these book for hours on end without getting boared. And by the way Maurice Sendak has some other many bestsellers, i suggest you look at them. They may inspire you.

I completely forgot about the Goodnight Moon book! I loved that one when I was a child. I think a lot of people look to Dr. Seuss books and as much as I do like those, I want to pull from other books. Thanks for your suggestions!

Aesop's fables are some of my all-time favorite kids books
