One of our favourite fall traditions is our Halloween bookshelf, filled with fun spooky stories to get in the festive spirit! This collection of Halloween books is perfect for kids in elementary school– our first grader especially loves the silly jokes and sneaky plans to catch & scare a ghost. Enjoy!
One of our favourite ways to celebrate the holidays is with books, and our Halloween book collection is definitely a family favourite! This collection is perfect for kids aged kindergarten and up. These books are filled with fun story lines, little mysteries, and beautiful illustrations. And, it’s no surprise that two ballerina zombie books make the list– chosen by Miss V of course!
We are back for another round of #bookishplay, this week we are focusing on feelings with one of our all-time favourite books, The Pout Pout Fish! If you’ve checked out our Little Library section you’ll know that my girls love books. We’ve joined a movement on instagram (@mamawrites) to inspire young readers to have fun with the books they read through play!
We’ve joined a fun creative movement over on instagram (@mamawrites) to inspire book based play in little readers! Let’s get our kids excited about books through fostering stronger connections to reading. My girls love to play and to read, so why not combine these two loves and have a whole lot of fun?
Today we are sharing five Easter books that are great for babies aged 0-2. These books are filled with simple rhymes, fun songs, and bright colors– perfect for story time with your littlest reader!
Easter is often filled with candy and treats, but we think books are the perfect simple gift to give. We have always include an Easter book in our baskets and we know if will get lots of use and enjoyment. The girls are always excited for a new book! Win-win in my books! 😉 And for kids a little bit older, be sure to check out our preschool Easter book list.
Happy reading and Happy Easter! xo
Happy spring, Happy Easter! This Easter book collection is perfect for kids ages four and up. These books offer a mixture of fun, meaningful, and engaging content that is perfect preschool-age children. My oldest daughter and I love to read these books together one-on-one. We talk about friendship and inclusion while reading the book Cat and Bunny, create a fun story and guess what’s coming next in the book Egg, and look for spring animal babies in the Baby Easter Bunny.
These books are perfect for adding to your kids’ Easter basket, and we love having a growing collection of Easter books for our bookshelf! We hope you enjoy these sweet Easter reads! xo
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
Round two of our Christmas Little Readers’ list includes books perfect for your preschooler, or kids aged 4-7! 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.
