One passion that we share at our house is the love of reading.  We are obsessed with books, which is evident from the large number of books throughout our house.  In fact, we are getting to the point that most of our shelves are full.  I’m not sure what we’ll do once they are full–build a library addition onto the house maybe.  I’m getting to my point, really I am.  I wanted to share with you some of our favorite books.  We own some of them and others have been library discoveries.  Each time I make a new post about kids’ books, I’ll include five books.  I hope you get as much enjoyment from these books as we have!

  • Star Wars Origami by Chris Alexander — I got this book for my boys for Christmas.  It is amazing for anyone who is a Star Wars fan.  The book consists of directions for folding a variety of Star Wars characters and includes the specialty paper that makes them really look the part.  I can’t overemphasize how neat this book is!
  • Little Melba and Her Big Trombone by Katheryn Russell-Brown — I checked this out on a whim from the library.  It’s about a little girl who decides she wants to play the trombone and how she eventually becomes a jazz great.  A super story!
  • LEGO Minifigures: Character Encyclopedia by Daniel Lipkowitz — This book gives you all the information you could possibly want to know about a variety of the more generic LEGO characters.  These are not the Star Wars or other franchise characters, but the random ones.  It’s a really fun and colorful book for major LEGO fans.  If you buy it new, it also comes with a bonus toy soldier minifigure.
  • Down by the Bay by Raffi — We have had this board book since my eldest was a baby.  That was ten years ago.  The kids love this song and the silly illustrations that accompany it.  “Did you ever see a bear combing his hair?”
  • Tyler Makes Pancakes! by Tyler Florence & Craig Frazier — This was a recent library find, too.  In this book Tyler wants to make pancakes, so he goes down to the local grocery store for the ingredients.  The grocer helps him pick out each ingredient and tells him how it is grown and/or processed.  What a great way to teach kids that there is more to food than just picking it off the shelf at the supermarket!

That’s it!  Look for more posts like this in the future!  We love books and love to share them with others!
