Picture Books That Feel Like Classics the First Time You Read Them

Do you remember reading books with your parents when you were younger, and they would tell you this is what they read as a kid? For me, it was books about a bull who liked flowers, an engine who believed in themself, and a curious little girl who lived in the Plaza Hotel. There is something enduring about these stories. They live through the people we share them with: our parents and our children. Below is a list of books that embody this sense of endurance. Books that one day your child will read to their child, books that will be passed down for generations.
