I love kids books. And I’m always looking for awesome new ones for my nephew and for my clients. Books make a great gift. They can inspire hours of imagination and the reading of books together gives you special time to bond. A book that encourages further family time is even better! Check out my new favorite finds.
1. The Sleepy Star is an awesome book about a small star who falls asleep and goes on an ocean adventure. It’s an adorable story told in rhyme. I love it as the author is local to me! It’s a sweet story your kids before bed time. They will ask for it over and over again. Adrienne’s second book, The Sleepy Star Goes To Heaven, talks about the difficult subject of death. It’s brilliant illustrations make a hard topic really sweet and it’s message is memorable.
2. Cooking With Kids is an awesome book for rainy weekend afternoons and family activities. The book gives you fun (and easy) recipes and food creations that your kids will love to make AND eat! It has great photos, easy instructions and unique ideas. Overall, this is a winner. If you have relatives or grandkids…have this on hand for special entertainment when they come over.
3. Long for simpler times? Buy The Art of Skipping Stones Other Fun Old-Time Games. It’s full of the old games you remember from your childhood. Know what? They are still awesome today! Have a family game night without electronics or distractions with this book!
