This was such a great children’s story about nature and littering and the impact on our seas!
This is a fictional story about Violet as she finds litter in the water and wants to find out how she can help make things better. I really appreciated the mix of fictionalized story and non-fiction information. It made for great conversation starters as I read this with my kiddos! There were lots of great questions as the story progressed!
This book is quite lovely. It’s a beautiful, heartwarming story of a young girl navigating through the grief of losing her butterfly.
I really enjoyed that this story features the importance of supporting those who may be grieving. Star realizes that while she was under a dark cloud and sad, others may be feeling that way as well. I liked the message that part of the story provided!
This is such a lovely children’s book. It’s filled with support, love, and confidence-building moments!
Focusing on how hard children try to be perfect, and not make mistakes, this book really shows how it is okay to not be perfect. They are enough. I loved the messaging, and the easy way it is told thought the pages.
This is such a wonderful children’s book with a beautiful message about accepting each other’s differences and being kind.
The story introduces us to two villages, Meow Village and Woof Village, where cats and dogs live separately and don’t like each other. When Sunny decides that he wants to play with the cats, he heads over to Meow Village.
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.
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.
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.
