We love to read about love and kindness, and these Valentines-inspired books are perfect to read with babies ages 0-2, particularly since they feature the things that a baby’s whole world revolves around: Mommy, Daddy, and lot’s of hugs and kisses! We also love giving books for gifts, and these make the perfect gift for your littlest Valentine!
Happy Reading! xo
Happy February– the month for all things love and kindness! Our first Valentine’s Day Little Library book round-up is for the preschoolers! These books have heartfelt messages, beautiful illustrations, and a few familiar faces from book series that this age group loves to read! We are always encouraging our kids to be kind, and it’s wonderful to read these thoughtful stories together that encourage kindness.
Round two of our Christmas Little Readers’ list includes books perfect for your preschooler! Vienna loves Christmas stories, and I love finding new books with meaningful messages for her collection. We save these longer books for when baby sis is in bed and it’s such a nice thing to cozy up and do together, especially during the busy holiday season. For books perfect for younger babies, check out our Baby’s First Christmas Library!
Christmas is my favourite time of year, and, given my love for children’s books, it should be no surprise that kids’ Christmas books are one of my all time favourite things! We love to read these stories all month long as we get into the Christmas spirit! This first Christmas list (there’s more to come!) is a series of five little books that are perfect for younger kids age 0-2. Of course both my girls (age 2 & 4) read and love them, but I find these shorter board books particularly good for the littlest of readers! If you are looking for suggestions for preschoolers, check out our top picks here!
To be fair, most children’s books rhyme– and really, they all should, shouldn’t they? (Or is it just me who gets a bit annoyed when a kids’ book doesn’t rhyme… insert that little eye roll emoji right here…) I love the flow and rhythm created by rhyming stories, and so does Vienna. She spends a lot of time “reading” books lately and I love listening to her make up little rhymes (some aren’t words at all, of course) and she mimics the rhythm and rhymes of her favourite stories. It’s so sweet.Here are five of our favourite books that rhyme! I’ll have to do subsequent versions of this list because it was nearly impossible to only pick five.
Happy Halloween! One of my fave ways to celebrate holidays– any and all holidays, that is– is with festive books! Here are five of our fave Halloween themed books this year. Our story time includes books for both of our girls’ ages (2 &4) : we all usually read a few books together before Aria goes to bed, rhyming board books are her jam, (and V knows most of the baby books by memory now, so sometimes she reads!) and then Vienna and I spend some time reading books with a bit more of a story line. And that Little Blue Truck? Always a hit with both kids 😉
We love to read! And I’m excited to start sharing books for reading with your little ones in my new Little Library section! To kick things off I’m sharing five of our most LOVED books, about love and life. These books always remind me that although this motherhood gig may be hard, it is so worth it. I hope you enjoy these special Little Library books as much as we do. xo
