This collection of books is part of Feed Me Books Friday hosted by The Adventure of Motherhood. This week’s theme is Resurrection, Easter Stories and More. Check out what books Moms are recommending to help you get ready for Easter! We’ve been traveling this week so I haven’t had a chance to find Easter-themed books, yet.
We brought several new books with us on our trip and then were given several more from a dear friend. Sammi’s backpack can’t even hold all the books we now have! And she can’t carry it when it’s stuffed with as many as it will hold. But it’s a great place to store them so they don’t take over Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Some of our new favorites are listed below.
Chewy Louie is about a little boy who gets a brand new puppy from his dad. The puppy loves to chew and basically destroys the house. The boy keeps thinking his parents will decide to get rid of the dog, but they wait it out and eventually he grows out of puppyhood and stops chewing everything. Sammi and Elli have each brought this book to me asking for it again and again. They love the idea that he grows out of puppyhood just like they grew out of babyhood.
The Bouncy Baby Bunny is a cute book about how one bouncy bunny tries to settle down for a nap. He has quite an adventure trying to find a place where his bounciness is accepted and in the end it’s his bounciness that actually saves nap time. There are repetitive phrases in this book that work well with the rhythm and flow of the book. My husband didn’t like reading it that much because of the repetitiveness, but it didn’t bother me. Sammi loves this book the most of all of us and she reminds us of that each time she brings it to one of us to read.
We’ve had a lot of fun reading this week. Aside from playing outside, we’ve spent more time reading than on any of our other typical activities. Books are great because they’re easy to pack along, you don’t need many because kids love the same one over and over again, and they help make an unfamiliar place feel a bit more like home.
