On Our Bookshelf, Currently

My kids (three-year-old Emmi and one-year-old Everett) absolutely love going to the library—it’s one of those words that I have to spell out when I’m making plans because if they hear it and then we don’t end up going that day, they will go bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S. We love discovering new books, and more often than not, my daughter will find a book that she’s so crazy about that we borrow it on repeat until I finally give in and buy a copy to add to our growing collection. If you’re looking for children’s book recommendations for your own avid little readers, here are a few of our current favorites.

    Olivia has been a favorite for my daughter since the moment we brought the first one home! We also love the original.

    Any and all Julia Donaldson books!! The Scarecrows wedding, The Snail and the Whale, Room on the Broom and The Gruffalo are a few of our favs. Fun to read aloud. We have read them a million times and even I’m not sick of them!!

    Hahaha, that’s when you know you’ve found a keeper! We just added Room on the Broom to our collection the past Halloween (how did I wait almost four years to buy it???), and I’m definitely going to check out the others. Thanks Meghan!

    A recommendation that we enjoyed was Basil Hazel Forest. It was a splendid read and works for a variety of ages. Great to read aloud.
