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.

Not Your Average Princess: 11 Books to Encourage Children to be Unique

11 books about extraordinary princesses. These books encourage children to be unique.

Let me start off by saying that I am a huge Disney fan.  I have always loved the humor and joy that the movies bring and I love a happy ending.  Now that I have a daughter of my own, I started looking at some of the classic Disney films with a little more criticism.  Why didn’t Cinderella ever stand up for herself? How could Ariel find the love of her life and get married at 16? Isn’t there something wrong with a prince kissing an unconscious woman who cannot give consent? I want to make sure that my daughter has role models with a little more substance than some of the princesses from 50 years ago.   Continue reading “Not Your Average Princess: 11 Books to Encourage Children to be Unique”

Bookish Rooms: Treasure Island Pirate Bedroom

Treasure Island Pirate Bedroom inspired by the best pirate books we know!

Treasure Island is a classic book for a reason. Sword fighting, dastardly pirates and of course treasure! The perfect story to inspire any child’s imagination. Most people don’t realize that the story is perfect for kids as young as ten. It’s the perfect story to get kids, particularly boys, into classic literature. While my littles are still too young for this tall-tale, they still love a good pirate adventure, which is what inspired us to create this Treasure Island pirate bedroom mood board. It makes me want to redecorate!
