Children's Books: What Our Girls and I Are Loving Right Now!

Hi Everyone!  Today I wanted to talk about some of our favorite children's books at the moment!  I did one of these a little while ago but I have discovered some new fun books since then so I thought I would share them!  I love finding new things to read to my girls so maybe I will do an update every six months or so.  

This is Sadie by Sara O'Leary 

Right now, this is by far Ezrah's favorite book.  Lately, when I ask her if she would like to read this is the book she brings me.  It's such a cute little story about a girl named Sadie who has a huge imagination.  I love that this book encourages my girls to dream big and to make an adventure out of everyday.  I think it will be a favorite for a very long time!  Also, I just have to say that I am a huge sucker for illustration an Julie Morstad is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  Her illustrations are so whimsically beautiful and they help you feel totally engrossed in the story.  

"Sadie likes to make boats out of boxes and castles out of cushions.  But more than anything she likes stories, because you can make them from nothing at all." 

Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio 

This book is about Gaston, a french bulldog and Antoinette, a french poodle who get mixed up at birth and go home with the wrong family.  They find that they don't really fit in with their brothers and sisters.  Then one day at the park the two families come together where Gaston and Antoinette finally find out that there has been a mistake.  The rest of the story follows the two puppies as they try to find their place.  The reason I love this book so much is because it encourages children to be themselves no matter what and that everyone's strengths can play an important role in different situations.  

"This time Gaston and Antoinette wasted no time trading places.  There.  That looked right.  And it felt right, too."


This was a book that Ezrah got for her birthday this year.  This tells the inspiring true story of Anna Pavlova, a Russian ballerina.  This is such a beautiful book about determination, passion, and hard work, which are such great lessons for little girls to learn even at a young age.  And yet again the illustrations will give you all the heart eyes (Ahem, Julie Morstad).  Ezrah really loves to dance, too so seeing all the different performances that Anna was apart of makes her really excited to read this book.  I can't wait to get her into dance classes in the near future! 

"What people throw flowers, Anna tosses them back.  It's enough just to dance."

Bunny Roo, I Love You by Melissa Marr

Bunny Roo, I love you is about the love between a mother and her child.  It's sweet as anything and a great reminder to our girls of how much we will love and care for them no matter what.  

When we found out Hadessah was on her way we decided not to throw a huge baby shower since we already had almost everything we needed.  Instead we decided to have a book shower.  My amazingly creative mother had this great idea to give each guest library cards so they could write a sweet note on them that we could later put in all the books.  It was so fun getting all the sweet notes of blessings from all our friends and family and I cherish every one of them!  Anyways, this is the book I chose for our baby girl and I think that it will be a well read tradition for both our girls for many years to come! 

"I brought you to a nice, warm patch of sunlight so you could see the world."

So that's all I have for today!  I hope you enjoyed this post and were inspired in some way to start or continue reading with your kids.  It's such a fun tradition!  

What are some of your favorite children's books?  I would love to hear your recommendations!  

Have a super blessed week!
