As most of you know I am avid reader. I don’t have much time to read during the day but I love to get into bed with a good book. I also love reading to Sterling. Since he was little I made it a priority to make sure we read to him each night. I think that is how children learn to love books through their parents taking the time to sit down and read to them. Every night Matt and I each read Sterling at least one book a piece and he always asks for us to read more when we are done, which makes me smile.
Don’t worry I am not about to get all preachy in this post, although I do think it is important to read to kids and encourage them to read and use their imagination.
I thought it would be fun for me to share the last few books I have read and enjoyed also some of Sterling’s favorites in hopes that you would recommend some new ones for us. I need a great new book to curl up with at night , and I also would love to give Sterling a few new books for Christmas, so I need ideas!
Here are the last few books I have read. I loved them in all different ways and would recommend each of them. Gone Girl and Wild were two surprising favorites of mine out of the bunch because they are not the types of books I typically read. They were both awesome! As you can see I am all over the place with my reading choices. So, please dish what have you read recently that I need to get my hands on??
Here are a few recent favorites of Sterling’s that he insists on reading every night! Any of these would make great gifts for little boys (or girls). And yes we are already reading Christmas books round here:) What other books are must haves for a soon to be three year old?
While we are on the subject of books, oh how I dream of having a library in my house one day! How amazing are these home libraries? The book worm in me is swooning over all these beauties.
And because Christmas is right around the corner, here are a few coffee table books on my wishlist I am hoping to add to my collection (hopefully Santa is reading).
So please help a sista out and recommend some books for me and my little man!
Happy Monday and almost Halloween!
