Best Books about School for All

,The Best Books about School for preschool to college aged kids.

Every time we look at the calendar we are shocked to see the summer is almost over (heavy sigh). Previously, we did a post that introduced going to school to your youngest child, but what about getting your older kid’s ready to head back? Some kids look forward to the start of the school year while others dread the end of summer. Getting them ready to head back can be as simple as finding a funny book or two! My personal favorites are those in the Wayside School Series. I use to laugh for hours reading them, but we have a ton of other fun books to get your kids ready for the grind!

Patriotic Picture Books for the 4th of July!

Patriotic picture books that are perfect for July 4th Weekend!

Regardless of your political affiliation, I think we can all agree that what makes America such a special country is freedom. Freedom of speech, freedom of religion and freedom to live our lives the way we wish.  It is important to note that America wasn’t always free. We celebrate the 4th of July every year to remember how we became the Land of the Free. In honor of the birth of the nation, we present you with a list of our favorite patriotic picture books. Enjoy your holiday and Happy 4th of July. Continue reading “Patriotic Picture Books for the 4th of July!”

16 Dragons Books for All Ages

George and the Dragon and 15 other dragon books for all age groups

This month, we have fairy tale fever. Between the recent release of Dragons Love Tacos 2, which we commemorated with a playroom inspired by the book, our favorite princess picture books, and next week’s storybook adventure location, we are going back to basics. Why do knights, princess, dragons, and castles inspire so much imagination? We aren’t sure, but we do know that our children are caught up in these types of fairy tales as much as we are. Dragons, in particular, seem to cross all age brackets and genders. We decided to compile the best dragon books for all ages to inspire the lords and ladies of your castle.
