Must Have Kids Books
One of the first things I did when I found out I was pregnant with Lilly was go out and buy some books. Not pregnancy or parenting titles, no clothing, kids books. Books that I would begin to read to her while she was still in the womb and continue once she was out. It’s my favorite thing to buy for her, hands down. Much to my delight, she LOVES to read. She now has hundreds of books, several cases and stations and will sit for hours both with and without us and read. For many special occasions (Valentine’s Day, Easter, summer break…), I get her a new book and write a little note inside for her to one day remember. Last year, when school started, I gifted her and her friends The Day The Crayons Quit. (I’ve also used Where the Wild Things Are as a guest book for a sprinkle I threw.) This year, I picked out The Wonderful Things You Will Be, which has become a daily read.
Below, a few more of our current and all-time favorites.
