My favorite time of the day is before bed when I get to read to my munchkins. Unfortunatly, life happens and things get busy so this doesn’t happen every night but I try to incorporate it into our day whenever possible. I am an avid reader and have had my nose in a book my whole life. There is nothing better than being engrossed in a world and falling in love with fictional characters that remind you so much of yourself. I want to teach my kids the beauty of stories and show them all the wonderful adventures you can find inside a book’s pages. Hopefully, some of that will rub off on them.
Usually, story time around here consists of the boys running into their room and grabbing as many books as they can fit in their arms. There is really no rhyme or reason to this madness and we never quite know what we will end up with.
This was our haul for tonights story time…..
No matter how many books they bring to me I know there is guaranteed to be the same two hidden in the pile somewhere.
The first one is……
This book is a must read for anyone with kids. It’s really funny and cute. It makes me laugh and some kids books are just painful to get through.Not this one!! I mean a book about kissing….who can beat that?
The second book certain to end up in our stack is…
My boys LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. Logan and Mason are obsessed with Halloween and that is when I first introduced them to this book and they have fallen in love with it ever since. They both practically have it memorized and can recite the story almost all the way through. I like doing different voices and inflections to make it more of a ‘spooky’ scary story. They think it’s pretty funny. If your kids love Halloween then this is sure to be a hit.
If anyone out there has any more good book suggestions for little ones let me know. I’m always interested in finding new stuff.
Wishing you lots of bedtime stories and memories with your little tots…..
