There is nothing like a good book!
Bear, Love Bug and I have a nighttime ritual that I absolutely love and look forward too…“snuggle in and read”. I’m sure many of us share this same routine before bedtime.
It’s amazing as a mom, my strong desire for a GREAT children’s book. How many of us encourage our children to grab their favorite book and as they return to bed with THREE books, we dread their selection and we gravitate toward the books we love? Ok, I will admit it…I do. (If I have to read Elmo Goes Potty one more time…) Over our 3 short years of reading nighttime stories together, I’ve discovered some awesome books out there. I wanted to share our favorites and why ~ and I would love to hear about your recommended reads.
As the proud mom of 2 little girls, there is something about a great little girl book.
Spider Sisters is an all time favorite that teaches the important lesson of ‘sisters are forever, friends will come & go’. It’s an awesome and inspiring book for sisters (of all ages).
Pinkalicious, adorable and fun. A quick, entertaining read that ALL little girls will love, including mom.
If you want to teach little girls about day-dreaming I would encourage you to read Do Princesses Really Kiss Frogs? (the illustrations are so cute)
And if you want to take that day-dreaming to something a little more adventuresome read We’re Going on a Bear Hunt or Daddy Mountain.
I’m a true entrepreneur at heart and passionate about marketing. Sure, I have a desire that our 2 little girls will share this same passion for business…so Lemonade for Sale is a must for marketing moms like me. (Thanks Lindsay for a great gift) I would describe Lemonade for Sale as the children’s version of The Wealthy Barber. Both apply basic principles to saving money.
I personally try to live the mantra that “all things are possible.” As a mom, I want to find new ways to instill this same optimism for life’s opportunities and a thrill for trying new things. Well…some great books that foster that type of thinking and dreaming:
Oh The Places You’ll Go and On Beyond Zebra (Dr Seuss, you are on to something)
There is no way you can put into words the love you have for your child. And I’m confident they won’t fully understand the love a parent has until they become a parent themselves. Two of our favorite books are:
You’re My Little Love Bug and On the Night You were Born
Please share your favorite bedtime stories with us – we’re are always up for trying a new book!
