That is absolutely accurate in my case. When I entered college I spent time in a few different majors before I finally returned to my love of books. I graduated with a degree in Secondary English Education and spent my professional days immersed in literature. I felt fulfilled in my career because I studied and practiced what truly made me happy. Turns out, I loved teaching and mentoring my students worlds more than I enjoy books, but that's a story for another day.
Now that I'm stay-at-home mama, I continue to spend my days surrounded by books. I take our children to storytime at the library at least once a week, and we always come home with new texts to peruse. Naptime and bedtime are preceded by a few good books and we have a cute reading nook in our playroom that beckons us during the day.
Here is a list of some of my favorite children's books (some of which you may have never read). Each week I hope we'll come across another gem, but the majority we encounter are rather bland. My husband and I find ourselves wondering how most children's books even get published; the content often isn't worthy. I believe all of the below books are creative, clever, inspiring, and/or informative--key ingredients to a successful read!
I hope you enjoy these books as much as we do! Please leave me a comment with your favorite children's books. I appreciate your suggestions, and the opportunity to expand our minds, hearts and library. Happy reading!!!
