For the Book Worms {GIVEAWAY}

Gabrielle and Alaina have recently turned into little book worms and I'm always asking friends which books their kids like so I can add some fun new titles to our collection.  I figured some of you might be looking for new books too, so here are a few our current favorites.

Gabrielle and Alaina love "touch" books, like Matthew Van Fleet's board books.  Their current picks are Cats, which has lots of soft tails to stroke and other fun interactive pieces to pull and push.


And Tails, which is very similar but also has scratch and sniff spots!


They're kind of stir crazy at this age but there are a few books they'll sit and listen to me read to them, like Giraffes Can't Dance by Gilles Andrae.


And The Sneetches by Dr. Seuss.


The two newest additions to our repertoire are The Boy Who Wouldn't Share which is written by Mike Reiss, a former writer for The Simpsons


It's the story of Edward, who won't share his toys and ends up stuck in a pile of them after he tries to keep them all for himself. The illustrations are really entertaining and I like the message of the book a lot.

And then there's Push Button by Aliki. 


My girls love to push any buttons they find, so this book about different buttons and the noises they make when you push them is perfect for them. I also love the bright illustrations - they really pop off the page.

Check out some of these fun titles the next time you're at the library or the bookstore and I hope your little ones enjoy them as much as mine do!
