Craig and Al’s Favorite Children’s Books – Their Top 5

Craig and Al went to Victor School yesterday and Cold Springs Elementary School in Missoula earlier this week to read to some of the young students. This led to the obvious question, “What are Craig and Al's favorite books to read to children?” Even if you don't have a child to read to, as Craig said, it brings back memories just to see these book covers, so take a look at their picks.

“The Story of Grump & Pout”


By Jamie McEwan

Everyone gets a little cranky from time to time, but this book shows that there are ways to get cheered up.

Craig records chapters of this book and sends them to his grandchildren in Texas.

“I Need My Monster”


By Amanda Noll

This book has become a new favorite among kids for Al to read.




“Ladybug Girl & Bumblebee Boy”


By Jacky Davis and David Soman

Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy each have their own separate books as well, but this book brings the beloved duo together.

“Princess Smartypants”


By Babette Cole

Craig said this is a great book for the young girl who isn't the traditional princess-type, as it shows girls an alternative to waiting for prince charming to marry them and give them a happily-ever-after life.
