Hi. Today I would like to share with you some of our favourite books.
Reading to your little ones and encouraging them to read on their own as they grow is one of the greatest things we can do for them.
Especially in a world where technology seems to be taking over.
There are wonderful apps and tools for little ones that teach and encourage their young minds, but I strongly believe books are still the best option and I’m so thankful for my little's love for reading.
I personally love this one. There are many books on women and the strides that they have made, but this one is appropriate for little minds, with a beautiful collage design and spirited language.
2. Your Fantastic Elastic Brain - Stretch it, Shape it!
This is a great book. It explains accurate information about the brain and it encourages little children to learn and grow. I had a lot of : Aha! moments reading this book, so it's great for parents too! :)
This has to be our favourite! I can't recommend this book enough! It is brilliantly written, nothing like I've ever read when it comes to Bible books for children. It came with a CD collection and we listen to them in the car so much that my kids know most of the stories by heart.
A sweet and simple book with beautiful illustrations that my girls ask for quite often. It teaches little ones to be thankful.
We love Max Lucado's books! This is the story of Punchinello and how he meets his Maker for the first time. It's a beautiful story that teaches children that what matters is what God think and not what others my think of us. The one we have is a board book witch is great with small children. There are more books in this series that we love and still to purchase.
This is a board book too, great for little hands. It has no words so you can make up your own story. There is so much to explore on each page, Alex loves this page right here! He has a thing for lions and tigers. :)
Buying books can get expensive. Here are some ideas for where you can get books for your children that wont brake your budget and you get to recycle and reuse.
- buy books that are gentle used from Amazon or Ebay.
- charity shops ( thrift shops)
- car boot ( garage sales)
- borrow from your local library or their school/preschool. Sometimes library sell their book for as little as £0.20 a BAG! It's worth to ask your local library when is their next sale.
- set up a library system with other moms were you can borrow books from one another. I do that with a friend in church.
- Poundland ( Dollar Tree)
- make a list of the books you are interested in and look out for Sales. I bought a book for £0.30, down from £9 from a fancy bookshop because there was a small dent on the book cover!!
Thank you for reading! :)
