Love these! I highly recommend Landscapes of the Solar System by Aina bestard as a coffee table book for kids and adults. It's fascinating and beautiful and has cool overlay pages that my kid loves.

It is bizarre to think of someone else curating your coffee table books. I like your approach much better. I put the Bibliophile book that you gave me on our coffee table and love looking at it.

Should I buy this stupid birds book for Rob?

I love this concept! I'm going to dig out our more gorgeous child-friendly books to display on the coffee table. We have that Maps book and I LOVE it. Another awesome kids map book is Wild Maps for Curious Minds.

Sing a Song of Seasons: A Nature Poem for Every Day of the Year ! Coffee table book size, beautiful illustrations, good for a quick read of the day's poem, or get lost reading several pages of poetry. Teaches kids about poetry, nature, seasons, and navigating the calendar.

Love this list! My kids love these kind of books. They have been great for that stage when my kids were still learning to read independently--they feel "grown up," the pictures are engaging so it doesn't matter if they are reading the words, and it keeps them occupied for a long time.
