For those on a strict budget, recommended purchases are:

Year 0 (pre-school)
Since Charlotte Mason didn't think that young children needed lots of books but were better off playing outside, very few book purchases are really necessary. Nice to have:
Beatrix Potter books (children really like the miniature versions)
AA Milne's classics: Winnie the Pooh, House on Pooh Corner, When We Were Very Young, Now we are Six
A classicly illustrated version of Mother Goose
a well-illustrated (not by Thomas Kinkaid) version of A Child's Garden of Verses**see note below
Hans Christian Andersen tales with classic illustrations
classicly illustrated books of standard poetry including The Pied Piper of Hamlin
Picture books such as:
The Little House and Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton
The Little Engine that Could by Watty Piper with the original illustrations
Ferdinand by Munro Leaf
Ping by Marjorie Flack
Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey
The Biggest Bear by Lynd Ward
**There are some wonderfully illustrated versions of children's poems out there to choose from.
Children enjoy seeing pictures of children like themselves. While Thomas Kinkade's paintings enjoy
popularity with many people, they aren't really geared for children; they're charming, idyllic scenes
that appeal more to adults who may be drawn to peaceful scenes of country tranquility. Since there
are so many alternatives that would be better suited to children, the concern was that Kinkade's
current fame might cause a parent to choose the version with his pictures based on the fame of a
name alone rather than with a child's eye.
My favorite versions are illustrated by Eulalie and Jessie Wilcox Smith. Children dressed as real
children were in Robert Louis Stevenson's day helps to set the poems in their correct time context
and may help a child form a perspective that children who lived a long ago were a lot like they are
today, which I believe gives a better idea of our place in the world; ie, people who lived before were
just as real as people who live today. It would be a shame for children to miss seeing pictures of
children alongside these poems about children.
One that I especially recommend: "A Child's Garden of Verses - a classic illustrated edition
conceived and collected by Cooper Edens" ISBN 0877016089 Chronicle Books San Francisco
