Books We Love: That’s Not My Elephant

Relevance: 88%      Posted on: April 8, 2016

*Affiliate links may be included in this post.*   Henry is my silly, happy, always trying to keep up with the older kids "baby" who isn't a baby anymore.  At 17 months old, I love that while he wants to climb and explore, he also loves to sit on my lap and read some stories.  Since he was younger {haha} he has loved touch and feel books.  That's Not My Elephant makes my list of favorites AND Henry's list because the simple repetition paired with the touch and feel pages with different textures on every page make reading and exploring this book so much fun for both him and I.     Not only is this book fun, but there is an entire line of That's Not My ...... books with the same fun, rhythmic repetition that kids love.   To find the rest of the Books We Love features - head on over to this page.

Books We Love: Amazing Women

Relevance: 85%      Posted on: October 12, 2019

*Disclosure:  Affiliate links may be included.* I was reading some article on the internet this morning about how by age 10 most girls are giving up on their dreams while that isn't the same for boys. {I seriously wish I could find the article to link to it}. My goal as a mom is to not only encourage my kids to all be whatever they want to be but to chase those dreams and never give up. I have quite a few books that I stock our book bin with because I want to keep those words and successes of others in front of my kids every day. One of the books I love reading with the kids is Amazing Women. There are over 100 women in this book. Each page talks about the life and accomplishment of each of them in short little snippets. Each week we feature books we love and I love sharing them with you all. Who is one woman who has inspired you in your life?

Books We Love: Count to 100

Relevance: 85%      Posted on: August 5, 2016

Count to 100 is packed full of fun illustrations your kids will love.

I'm all about books that encourage concepts we are working on anyways.  I'm also a huge fan of books that work for all of the kids.  Today, our Usborne Books & More order arrived and some of the new titles were in it.  I couldn't wait to dig in and neither could the kids.  One of the books we ordered was I Can Count to 100.  Maggie already counts to 100, but I knew it would be great practice for Charlie and Henry too in the future.   The beginning of the book starts out with counting objects, one, then two, then three, and up to ten.  Then 20, 30, 40, etc. up to 100.  On each page, they are grouped together for different counting skills, counting by 5's, 10's, on 70 you count by 7's, yet you can also count by 1's on each page.  The pictures are so fun and engaging and the pages do more than just get them counting, they ask questions.  The questions have them searching the pages for answers so they don't get bored with just counting their way through the book.  They get them thinking and talking and learning about so much.  Younger readers can learn to count, but as they grow, the book grows with them and they can work on multiplication.   While I AM an Usborne Books & More consultant and do get commission on any orders through my links, I truly share these books because above all, I'm a mom.  A mom who loves to see my kids succeed and grow and I love that books are such a large part of that for us. Count to 100   To purchase this book, visit the website and click on the party name or anytime orders.   I recently wrote about early math books for young learners.  It will be a series by age, I will try to update this post with the rest as soon as they are done.

Books We Love: Look Inside Your Body

Look Inside Your Body

This may be one of the neatest books I have ever seen.  With over 100 flaps to life, kids and adults alike will have some fun while learning about how your body works.  I've learned a few things and we just have so much fun.  It's so realistic and easy to follow.  For example - when you are on the Eating Food page, it shows your body, top to bottom.  As you lift the flap to eat the food, there is another flap that shows how the food starts to go through your body.  You never know when you lift a flap if you will find one more flap or not.  While I earn a commission on all Usborne books sales placed through my link, I really think that every family should have this book.

Books We Love: Little Blue Truck

Little Blue Truck

Not too long ago, we participated in a book exchange, you know the ones.  You send out one book, 6 letters, and in the end, you get 36 books I believe it is.  Well, so far, we have gotten two.  Not really surprised by that, but each time a book has shown up, it's been a nice little surprise.  The last book we received was this one, Little Blue Truck.  It almost immediately became Charlie's favorite.  He loves to sit and read it all of the time.  There was a time we had it in the car for a long car trip, and he was so funny.  At bedtime when it was time to read, he looked all over the bedroom for his book, saying truck, truck, the entire time.  I had to go out to the truck and get the book so we could read it.   I love this book because it has really increased his language as well as his interaction during story time.  He will get hung up on a page and keep turning back to it to tell me more about it.  For the boy who hasn't always cared to sit through an entire story, that's a big deal!  It helped him start identifying animals, as well as their sounds and it is so much fun to read with him.  It's a fun story to read about a dump truck who needs the help of the farm animals that he had just ignored, told in a fun, entertaining story kids will love.   Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle Illustrated by Jill McElmurry Is there a story that has turned your "too busy to sit down and read" child into a book lover?

The book I wanted to share with you this week is such a fun read, but has somehow disappeared in the last 24 hours.  So, here is another book that is my personal favorite right now, haha.  We have been struggling lately to get the kids to clean up their own messes.  Some days they do great, but other days it is a huge struggle and has all of us upset by the end of the night.   The Spic-and-Span Fairy By Sally Hewitt See the rest of the books we love and share some of your favorites with us.

National Geographic Halloween

I love this book, and so does Maggie.  There is actually one page where there are dogs in costumes and she had to get down from the couch and go show it to Lady Jane, the dog.  It was so sweet.  I like that this book is easy to read, informative, yet interesting to little ones.   National Geographic KIDS Halloween By Laura Marsh What are your favorite Halloween books to read?  For a full list of other books we love, visit this page.
