100 Days of Adventure is a book filled with ideas, projects, and activities to do with children that do not require an electronic. I really enjoy this book, and I truly think it’s full of fantastic things to do!

There are indoor and outdoor activities, and most of them are no-cost or very low-cost to do. There are illustrations and step-by-step guides to help you as you facilitate these activities. I loved that there was a wide range of options to choose from, and there are definitely some that we’ll do again!

I am such a sucker for a good kid’s book, and I found a whole series that was just fantastic! I laughed, my kiddos laughed, and we all enjoyed sitting together to read these!

Each book features two stories that have a fun plot and some situational learning involved! There are two versions of each of these books. There’s a Grandma’s Tales and a Grandpa’s Tales. There isn’t a difference between the two, it’s just which one you want to choose!

Grandma’s Tales 1
Wild Creatures in My Neighborhood and What If I Went to the Circus:

Two delightful stories you will enjoy reading out loud with your toddler, your preschooler, your beginning reader. Wild Creatures in My Neighborhood and What If I Went to the Circus are crafted with repeating phrases that will allow children to feel as if they are actually reading the story! Wild Creatures in My Neighborhood explores the wildlife all around us, even in our own backyards. What If I Went to the Circus shares the decision-making process with the youngest listener as a small boy decides who or what will be a good playmate.

I really love a book that helps children understand emotions they may feel or ones that others may feel, and this book does that beautifully!

This is the fourth book in the children’s series The Super Fun Day Books, and I have to recommend not only this book, but all of them. They each feature a child and a fear or emotion to understand and work through!

Bunster, an Easter Story is a board book targeting pre-k through early elementary children. It’s a cute story that has an Easter theme but could actually fit any time of year. I felt that the Easter concept was pretty light, so I think this could get read a bit more than just in the spring.

In the story, Bunster is getting ready for an Easter Egg Hunt, so he is collecting eggs on the farm to hide. In the end, the eggs hatch, and there are adorable little ducks!

This is a fun, silly book that will make any of your littles giggle! It reminded me of reading Where the Sidewalk ends when I was a child! The stories range from brushing your teeth in the morning to going to bed at night…and everything in-between!

I really enjoyed that these poems were grounded in realistic situations that every kid has encountered. Boo-boos, bedtime, nose picking, and so much more! It’s a relatable book of poetry that definitely had my kiddo laughing!

There’s An “N” On Your Nose is an adorable children’s book that creates a fun way to learn letters!

The story takes the reader through different letters on different parts of the body. “Did you know there’s an N on your Nose? Can you touch the T on your Toes?” Each page turn has another adorable situation with a letter and a word.

The Legend of the Dream Giants by Dustin Hansen

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This was a great story of coming-of-age. Berg is a giant without a family. He just wants to find a friend, a place where he can be accepted.

The story takes the reader on a Berg’s journey, and while it’s a bit heartbreaking, I think it’s also uplifting and moving. The story is fantastic, and I think it truly speaks to how children and adults should be treating each other at all times.

Be the Boss of Your Stuff by Allie Casazza

"Non Fiction" words carved into wood
Book Genre "Learning" with "Learn" spelled in blocks

Rating: 4 out of 5.

This is an interactive workbook for children to help them organize their own spaces. I liked that there are spots in the book for the child to answer questions or draw something. I think it will help them to work through what they want their space to be.

I liked that this talks about organization but does also have a minimalist approach as well. I think it’s a good blend. There are a lot of positive reinforcement moments in the book, which could help a child move forward and feel like they are accomplishing things. I like those little touches throughout the pages.

George J. and the Miserable Monday is a wonderful children’s book that discusses how Mondays can be hard for kids too!
