Here are some of my favorite kid books my 3 and 5-year-old daughter and son loved last year.
Not Quite Narwhal: Love the colors and illustration of this book about identity. This year my son started Kindergarten and as little ones and even adults grow up we often ask our self are we a unicorn or a narwhal? Well, maybe not that but it is a very kind story about Kelp finding out he might not be what he thought he was and how this new discovery actually made his life better by bringing two worlds together.
Dagons Love Tacos: This is a funny book about dragons who don’t like to eat spicy foods but love tacos. Funny since I love spicy foods and my kids don’t, but also a fun way to show them that not all foods are spicy. Not even tacos who are usually spicy, especially the ones on mama’s plate. Found these absolutely cute taco holding taco trucks that came two per a pack (orange and green) so it turned into a fun night.
Linus the Vegetarian T.Rex: My family is vegetarian (well hubby is pseudo) and this is a fun book on the topic to help not only my kids talk about what is a vegetarian but for all kids to open up to learning that everyone is different and we may not look the same, or maybe we don’t eat the same. My son started Kindergarten this year and I liked this book about diversity.
Robo-Sauce: This is a fun book about a kid who turns into a robot. Love the creative images and a BIG foldout page that my kids can’t wait to play with. Great book about being yourself and noticing the people around you. Of course, I paired it with spaghetti night.
Try a Little Kindness: Was the perfect addition to our month of December and random acts of kindness. This book is about different ways we can be kind, like letting others go first in line, holding the umbrella for someone, and opening the door for others. We can all use a little reminder and what a cute book to share with a little one in your life.
