Little Library: Easter Books for Babies

Easter Books for Baby

Today we are sharing five Easter books that are great for babies aged 0-2. These books are filled with simple rhymes, fun songs, bright colors, and easy engagement– 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 to babies (and kids too!) for this holiday. We have always included an Easter book in our kids’ baskets and they are always excited to have a new book, and we know if will get lots of use and enjoyment. Win-win in my books! ๐Ÿ˜‰ And for kids a little bit older, be sure to check out our preschool Easter book list.

Happy reading and Happy Easter! xo

Easter Basket Inspiration

Easter basket inspiration for kids

While I haven’t really given much thought to which holiday I like next best after Christmas, I’d have to say it is probably Easter. I don’t know if its the addicting mini-eggs talking (seriously, what is in those things?!) or the fact that signs of spring are popping up all around, or maybe it’s because baskets are just a spring version of Christmas stockings, am I right?

Little Library: 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!

Friday Faves: Cozy gifts for Mamas

Hygee (pronounced hue-guh): a Scandinavian wordย for a mood of coziness and comfortable conviviality with feelings of wellness and contentment. Yes. Please.

Is anyone else all about the cozy right now? Or always? Maybe I’m Danish at heart. Happiest when found wrapped in a blanket, in comfy clothes, drinking extremely hot coffee or tea with friends or family. So, there’s nothing more fitting than me sharing a few cozy-inspired gifts and stocking ideas for the Mamas this year. Who knew that gifting socks & bath products could look so gorgeous ๐Ÿ˜‰

Stuff the Stockings with Scallywags

The Christmas countdown is on, and if you’re like me you’ve got a few last minute gifts to wrap up. I don’t love crowds, but I do love shopping when everything is so festive! (Perhaps not ever having worked in retail during the holidays has contributed to this. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

I’ve teamed up with Scallywags, my favourite local children’s shop,ย to give one winner a $50 credit to shop for those last minute stocking stuffers! Scallywags stocks quality products and beautiful small shop goods, this is trulyย the store to browse for the absolute best products! Entering is easy, details are at the bottom of this post!

Little Readers: 5 Fun Books that Rhyme

Five Rhyming Books

To be fair, mostย children’s books rhyme– and really, theyย all should, shouldn’t they? (Or is it just me who gets a bit annoyed when a kids’ book doesn’tย rhyme… insert that little eye roll emoji right here…) I love the flow and rhythm created by rhyming stories, and so doesย 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 wasย nearly impossible to only pick five.

Friday Flat Lay Faves: for the Mamas

With Mother’s Day coming up this weekend I’m excited to shareย a few of my favourite products that make for a thoughtful gift for all of the Mamas out there! Of course Mother’s Day is not about the gifts we receive, but it is always nice to getย a little something special. Plus, I know my three year old daughter just loves to pick out and give gifts. She gets so excited and that makes me so happy! Gifts don’t have to be extravagant, as cliche as it sounds, it really is the thought that counts.
