Current Book Favorites

Every season we rotate our books in the playroom and kids’ bedrooms along with toys. It’s always exciting when we’re ready to switch them out because older books now become new all over again. I  enjoy being able to add a new book or two every few months as well since sometimes the books become so loved they may fall apart and need to move on. I recently added a few Valentine books to our shelves to celebrate the month of love and will keep them out a few more weeks before switching over to spring and Easter.
Mixed into our Valentine stash a few books related to winter and snow are hiding along with a couple new ones I plan to keep out all year long. The kids are so excited and are loving them page by page.
Scroll down to see a few of our new favorites.

Bunny Slopes by Claudia Rueda | I came across this book during one of our many trips to the book store. I fell in love with the book as soon as I read the second page. This book is interactive and encourages the kids to be silly and takes them on a ski adventure with a bunny. The kids are asked to help create snow by shaking the book and helping the bunny down the slope by tilting and turning the book around. It’s SO CUTE! I know this book will have to be replaced eventually because it will get handled more than a typical book. Kensi and Finn LOVE this book and get so giggly every time we read it.

Pancakes by Lotta Nieminen | This is also another interactive book. I always enjoyed reading books that included pull tabs, flaps and pop-ups. Pancakes is a children’s recipe book that encourages them to get in the kitchen and try making one of our all time favorite Saturday morning breakfasts. It does have a small pancake that can be removed and put into different places throughout the book. It can easily get lost, so I’m constantly checking to see if it’s put back to together. 

Love is a Truck by Amy Novesky | Mike and I gave this book to Finnley for Christmas. He loves trucks like most little boys, but I was immediately drawn to the monochromatic illustrations created by Sara Gillingham and the simplicity of the story. They’re absolutely darling. Kensi knows there's also Love is a Tutu and has asked for it several times since Christmas; maybe it will end up in her Easter basket this year.

Happy Reading!
