We are more than halfway through the year. How are you doing with your reading challenges? Have you gotten a lot of reading done over the summer? I haven’t done as much as I would like but I do have a few titles for you to add to your bookshelf this month. Here are six short reads that will be great additions to your list.
ABC Affirmation Baby Book – I’ve had JustaBXgirl do affirmations since she was tiny. It was my hope that if I helped her see herself as the amazing being she is from the start that no one would ever get her to doubt herself later. This book is a beautiful way to support that. It says it is for 0-5 but trust me it can be a beautiful addition to any home.
Mermaid Day – We love mermaids. This was such a fun and colorful read. We loved the rhymes that kept the story flowing. We loved that everyone was included in the celebration. And, of course, we loved the mermaids. It is the perfect addition for a summer read on the beach with littles.
Baby’s First Book of Banned Books – I love how simple this form of resistance is. It is a great way to introduce little littles to works of literature that society is trying to keep from them. It sums up the lesson of each banned book in a succinct manner. Great addition to a bookshelf that offers recommendations of other great bookshelf additions!
There’s a Yeti in My Tummy – This is a fun read for littles with big feelings. It helps them to identify what they’re doing and feeling. The illustrations help bring the fun words to life and give littles so much to discover.
Are You Gonna Eat That? – This is my type of humor. Ever wonder what your pet and the local wildlife are thinking? This book will let you know. You no longer have to scroll to enjoy Jimmy Craig’s webcomic series. There are over 100 comics included in the book.
When Moon Became the Moon – This is a book that I know we will revisit over and over. It makes science simple and warm. Science is always more fun when it is combined with fun drawings. The illustrations in the book do just that. Along with simple text, they teach us about Earth’s connection to our moon. Even though this book is meant for 3-5-year-olds, we will be adding it to our science resources because it gives JustaBXgirl a good foundation to dig deeper into the subject.
