I have a small weakness when it comes to buying good children's books. I love a good story that comes to life for a child as they listen to a book. I love escaping into a book's world and characters and feelings. I also love that as I parent and I find mysel having a hard time explaining a certain thing, life lesson, or experience that I can almost always find a book that relates to that certain thing or topic or lesson and my kids can grasp it through another way with words and pictures. I've had some great conversations lately with a few people about good books they are reading to their kids. I wanted to share a few in our weekly library. We read a lot here at the Hansen house and these books make the stack weekly, if not daily! I switch up our books as the seasons change, but some just never leave the book trunk in our living room. If you're looking for a good children's book... here's a few to pick from! My hope is that our children will learn to love books the way I do and appreciate what they can take from it each time they let themselves escape with a good read! If you have a good suggestion, leave a comment! I could not get one of our fave's to copy a picture over for me so here's a title to start you off!
How Do I Love You by PK Hallinan (a child is always loved even when they scribble on the wall, wear their pants backwards, or walk around with sacks on their head!)
It's so fun when everyone piles in bed for a nap! Even more fun when it's time to wake up!
what child doesn't get mad at their mamma for dragging them through the store! A classic that also has a "sister title" we love too... Lamma Lamma Red Pajama
You are special because the great Creator made you, just the way you are. The story is told through the eyes of a beaten up wooden doll, made by his creator, Eli.
Baba gives in and makes Nikki's snow white mittens... oh, what fun the animals of the forest have with it when he loses it! Great pictures!
You can never go wrong with an Eric Carle choice. This is a classic, must have!
Each creature loves their little ones just the same... tucking them in at the end of their day, a lullabye is sung to each little one. A must have before bed!
OKay, this one copied in spanish, my bad!! Ha! it's actually called "Hey, Little Ant". A somewhat funny story about being the little guy... ends with a great conversation question at the end for you and your little ones.
Have you ever been that kid that really wanted that certain something? Have you ever been the kid whom has had your needs taken care of and you could afford to give a bit more of your own things? Jaxon loves the story line in this book. So does mom :)
Because everyone should like themselves... no matter what googely eyes or horns or bumps you may have. We're each one of a kind!
This guy is just too cute... running, jumping, yelling for no reasons at all. Just likes the way it feels and sounds... a sweet read before nap time :)
