Family Life :: For the Love of Reading - Lucas' Book Basket

So i'm experimenting with organizing kids books... I loved reading as a kid and want to make sure books are available and accessible to our kids.

I've seen some really cool bookcases like this tree bookshelf...

























or these bookshelves made from rain gutters...
























or this dollhouse bookshelf from target...


















...but right now since Lucas is still little (and we don't have much room!) i've opted for this book basket. i've heard of mom's 'rotating books' so that there are new ones available every week (which i may do as he gets older).



















I'm also looking for suggestions for good kids books 0-2yrs range...
or 2-5yrs range (for the future!)

What books do/did your kids love?

Our boys love the original Curious George books, PJ Funnybunny, Dr. Seuss, Big Red Barn & Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown, Eric Carle books (Brown Bear, Brown Bear and the Very Hungry Caterpillar). We love books and use the library a lot. We also do book baskets. I find sometimes if there are too many books they just don't know which one to choose and it's overwhelming.
