“Here’s to strong women, may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them.”– Author Unknown
We love books that share stories and adventures of strong, inspiring and brave girls and women. Vienna has been flying through the Princess in Black series— I highly recommend this series if your kids are starting Chapter books! The list below includes a range of books- from fictional tales, to biographies of incredible women, to inspiring messages.
We hope you enjoy this little collection as much as we do!
I’m excited to share this list of Easter books– perfect for primary school aged children. With some fan favourites like Pete the Cat and Fancy Nancy, plus some sneaky ways to catch the Easter Bunny, it’s sure to get your kids excited for Easter! We love the book an Egg is Quiet– it’s filled with interesting facts about all sorts of eggs. I hope your kids love these books as much as mine do!
It’s no secret we love holiday books– we have a collection for each holiday of the year! Our Christmas collection has grown so large that I put together a Christmas book advent calendar! Below are 24 of our favourite Christmas books that are perfect for counting down to Christmas with children. Opening one book each day makes for a very special Christmas story time all December long.
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!
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
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. We hope you LOVE these as much as we do! Happy Valentine’s Day! xo
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.
