I have posted a few different lists...I wish I had the lists handy, they're buried in the archives of this site.  I can cut and paste in this book list from my essay though:

Some books I read to my son before his fourth birthday
Including chapter books, some poetry, and some other bedtime reading

We read many more books than this, of course, but these include some of the “chapter books” we read as well as some more advanced and “literary” material like the poetry of Edward Lear and R. S. Stevenson.  We started many more chapter books than this, which my son nixed.  Most of these we read when he was three years old, primarily at bedtime, for 30-45 minutes per session, but not infrequently at other times as well.

Amery, Heather.  Greek Myths for Young Children.
Atwater, Richard.  Mr. Popper's Penguins.
Baum, L. Frank.  The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
Beowulf.  Usborne illustrated classic edition.
Carroll, Lewis, adapted by Lesley Sims.  The Usborne Illustrated Alice.  Usborne illustrated classic edition.
Collodi, Carlo.  Adventures of Pinocchio.  (Read twice in a row.)
Dalgliesh, Alice.  The Bears on Hemlock Mountain.
Dicamillo, Kate.  Mercy Watson to the Rescue.  And the next two Mercy Watson books.
Earth & Space.  Question and answer format encyclopedia.
Gannett, Ruth Stile. My Father's Dragon.  Then Elmer and the Dragon and The Dragons of Blueland.
Illustrated Classics for Girls.  Usborne illustrated classic edition, features greatly simplified, 65-page versions of The Railway Children, The Wizard of Oz, Black Beauty, The Secret Garden, Little Women, and Heidi. (“For boys” not available until summer 2010…)
Illustrated Classics from Dickens.  Usborne illustrated classic edition; five novels greatly simplified.
Lear, Edward.  Complete Nonsense.  Read all of the limericks and most of the poems.
Le Guin, Ursula.  Catwings.
Le Guin, Ursula.  Catwings Return.
Milne, A. A.  Winnie-the-Pooh.  And selections from other Milne books.
O’Brien, Robert C.  Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nihm.
Osborne, Mary Pope.  The Magic Tree House: #1-30 & 35.
Prelutsky, Jack, ed.  Read-Aloud Poems for the Very Young.
Stevenson, R. L.  A Child’s Garden of Verses.
Warner, Gertrude.  Boxcar Children.
Wilder, Laura I.  Farmer Boy.  Halfway through at fourth birthday.
Wilder, Laura I.  Little House in the Big Woods.
Wild, Wild World.  Question and answer format encyclopedia of animals.
White, E.B.  Charlotte's Web.  (Read twice.)
White, E.B.  Stuart Little.
White, E. B.  The Trumpet of the Swan. (Halfway through a second reading at fourth birthday.)
Wyss, Johann.  Swiss Family Robinson.  Adaptation.

WOW! Those are some great lists. I'm hoping to get my son there soon. Right now chapter books are not in his attention span. However I do have some with pictures on almost every page, maybe I should give some of those a try.
I'm saving my swagbucks points for more gift certs. Hopefully when I have another one I'll get some of those Art books you mentioned tatianna.
Thanks for sharing you guys smile

Wow, these are impressive lists, Tatianna and DadDude!

I just wanted to ask if you (or anybody on this forum) could recommend any quality books for "beginner level"? My daughter is delayed in speech and communication, so her interest starts wandering off if I start reading anything more than 5 sentences per picture smile, as she does not have the necessary language understanding. At the same time I am reluctant to stick to baby-books and would like to give her some more exposure to quality literature. Did you come across any very basic adaptations with many pictures? Thanks in advance!

Here's a list of books for even smaller kids, which I just dug up:

  1.  Dr. Seuss's ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book! by Theodor Geisel - Dr. Seuss
Our favorite ABC book, and we have many.  Very entertaining, unlike most.

   2.  There's a Wocket in My Pocket! (Dr. Seuss's Book of Ridiculous Rhymes) by Theodor Geisel - Dr. Seuss
My boy loves the rhymes.  He looks for the nink in the sink.
   3.  Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! (Beginner Books(R)) by Theodor Geisel - Dr. Seuss
This one seems to have caught my son's imagination.
   4.  The Foot Book: Dr. Seuss's Wacky Book of Opposites by Theodor Geisel - Dr. Seuss
One of my son's all-time favorites.
   5.  Fox in Socks (Beginner Books) by Theodor Geisel - Dr. Seuss
Nonsensical but great fun, and good for teaching rhymes and language generally.

   6.  The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss
A classic with good reason.  Great fun.
   7.  Go, Dog. Go! (Beginner Books) by Philip D. Eastman
One of my boy's absolute favorites.  Simple, yet blissfully free of the artificialities and inanities of so many "beginning reader" books.
   8.  Hop on Pop (Beginner Books(R)) by Theodor Geisel - Dr. Seuss
Another of the simplest Seuss...careful, your tot may take the title's advice to heart.
   9.  Are You My Mother? by P. D. Eastman
We may have read this one more than any other book, period.  A perennial favorite.  Very simple, but with a clear and understandable plot and very kid-satisfying ending.

   10.  Green Eggs and Ham (I Can Read It All by Myself Beginner Books) by Theodor Geisel - Dr. Seuss
Another true Seuss classic that we have read many times, although not so much anymore, now that he's getting a little older.

   11.  The Complete Adventures of Curious George, Anniversary Edition by H. A. Rey
Every single one of the Curious George stories, without exception, is wonderful.  My boy loves them all, and we have read all of them dozens of times.  The ABC book and the hospital story are a little different from the others, but they are good as well.

   12.  Mad About Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans
The best of the Madeline books are the original and Madeline's Rescue, but the others are good as well.  We've read them all many times as well.  They're drawn perhaps a little strangely, but I think that is part of their appeal to kids.

   13.  The Poky Little Puppy (A Little Golden Book) by Janette Sebring Lowrey
My boy's favorite Little Golden Book.  Annoyingly repetitious but somehow also charming.

   14.  Scuffy the Tugboat and His Adventures Down the River by Gertrude Crampton
Another great Little Golden Book.  Excellent story.  Not so sure about the moral of it though.

   15.  Thomas the Tank Engine: The Complete Collection by Rev. W. Awdry
A big fat Thomas collection.  After my boy started watching the videos, he would request as many of these as I had patience to read.  Like, six in a row.  We've read over a hundred pages of this in a few weeks.  Also, accept no imitations.  Go for the original stories!  I just wish the illustrations were larger.

   16.  Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown
Bizarre but very interesting to our boy (and evidently lots of other kids).  We like lots of Margaret Wise Brown's books.

   17.  My World by Margaret Wise Brown
Companion book to Goodnight Moon.  Maybe not quite as good, but equally trippy.  These books are actually very subtle and thoughtful in their own way.
   18.  The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown
A great little story about how a bunny wants to run away from his mommy by becoming a bird, ship, or whatever, but his mommy always says she'll come after him.  My boy loves this one.

   19.  The Color Kittens (A Little Golden Book) by Kathi Ember
An excellent (and also trippy) Little Golden Book by Margaret Wise Brown.  The two color kittens, Brush and Hush, make all the colors of the world.  Excellent intro to color.
   20.  Chugga Chugga Choo Choo by Kevin Lewis
Our boy was crazy about this for a long time.  He's outgrowing it now, but definitely highly recommended for 1-2 year olds.

   21.  Duck in the Truck by Jez Alborough
Another obsession of our boy's--very funny and entertaining.  Wonderful rhymes, wonderful illustrations.  The duck is a bad un, but you can explain that to the kid...

   22.  The Potty Book - For Boys by Alyssa Satin Capucilli
This was great for potty training.  Our boy really got into it and seemed to have taken the message to heart.  It really seemed to help!

Updating the "jury's still out" list (the jury's back in!).  The following are definitely winners:

Brunhoff, Jean de. *The Story of Babar, the Little Elephant.* – The first two installments of this series were greatly loved by my boy.

dePaola, Tomie. *Strega Nona*.

Gag, Wanda. *Millions of Cats.*

Leaf, Munro. *Manners Can Be Fun* (and other Leaf "fun" books). – Definitely advanced for this age, however.

Lear, Edward. *A Book of Nonsense*. - Also somewhat advanced for this age.

Lobel, Arnold. *Fables.* – Really excellent but, again, advanced for this age (not unlike Aesop).  My boy wasn't totally excited about it (not unlike Aesop).  We did finish it.  *I* liked it.

McClosky, Robert. *Blueberries for Sal.*

Pulley, Kelly. *The Beginner's Bible.* – We enjoyed this.  Not too devotional.  Works well as a storybook.

Rosen, Michael. *We're Going on a Bear Hunt.*

Swift, Hildegarde H. *The Little Red Lighthouse and the Great Gray

Also, I'm updating an item on the following.

*On some lists, but not on ours*:

Guarino, Deborah. *Is Your Mama a Llama?* – Turns out we liked it well enough but by the time we read it he had more or less outgrown it.  Good for earlier ages.

OH, I can not thank you enough tatianna and Dad Dude for this enourmous list of books. You even classified them. Excellent reference.

I read it very fast but am going to copy for future reference out of internet. My grandson also enjoy "Is your Mama a Llama?" and me too especially beiing LLamas and animal from the mountains of Peru where I happened to be born and lives.
I didn' t see Good Night Moon which we also enjoy.
For me excellent because both of them comes with CD that i use after reading once because it is better than my pronunciation.

Karma to both of you.

Thanks everyone! I love books. And if you can't purchase them or find them at your local library there are some websites that have them to download to read online or an mp3 file as well, just a thought.
