What We're Reading... more Children's books

The little one and I have been "reading" these two darling children's books of late and I love them so, that I just had to share! Sweet Dreams, by Rose A. Lewis and Jen Corace is a story written in a parent's voice to her little girl telling her all about the animals who come alive at night, about "the friends she is soon to meet". And Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen, is a story about a girl who finds a magical box full of unlimited yarn that allows her to knit a sweater for every person, dog and house in her town.

 Here are a few vignettes of my favorite illustrations from Sweet Dreams. This book has a sweet rhythm to the comforting sleepy message.

And here are some of my favorite illustrations from Extra Yarn.  Our daughter refers to these books as "The owl book" and "The Yarn Store, book". And although her attention span is not as long as it will be, we have this tradition of sitting on Momma and Dadden's bed with Momma's pillow, and we flip through the books reading them occasionally and searching for the special elements in each book- the owl, the dog in the sweater etc. And learning bigger lessons about being gentle with our books ; ). I just love growing a little collection of beautiful books for our daughter. I hope you are inspired to check these books out for yourself!
