I’m back with another installment of our favorite children’s books!
- LEGO Play Book — This is a book for all LEGO®-lovers. It is full of building ideas–all kinds of different things you can make. It is meant to get your creative juices flowing and help you to not only make the things shown in the book, but venture out and make your own creations.
- LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles — My eight-year-old son really enjoys this book. If you’ve ever wanted to know more information about Yoda, then this is the book for you. It’s full of info. about Yoda and his life, with lots of colorful pictures. If you buy it new, it also comes with a Special Forces Commander Minifigure.
- LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary — This is the updated and expanded version of the same book that had a Darth Vader Minifigure on the front. It is chock full of information on and pictures of the different Star Wars sets and figures that have come out since the LEGO Star Wars fad began. If you purchase a new book, you’ll get an exclusive Luke Skywalker Minifigure.
- Love You Forever by Robert Munsch — I really like this book for its sentimental value, but I’ll be darned if it doesn’t make me want to cry every single time I read it. It’s a story about a mother’s love for her son that follows him from infancy through adulthood. It’s so sweet and touching. If you have a little one, you need to read this book.
- The Berenstain Bears’ Trouble with Pets by Stan & Jan Berenstain — We are huge fans of the Berenstain Bears books. I like this book because it shows the fun you can have with a pet, but it also talks about the added responsibilities and possible problems. My only criticism is that at the end they make a dog house for the dog to live out in the yard. That isn’t very realistic or enjoyable for dogs, so I think that it is giving kids some incomplete information about pet ownership.
