This completely adorable picture book, which won the Bronze Medal in the 2017 Wishing Shelf Book Awards, stole my heart the moment I viewed its first pages. Goodnight Wishes! is about a mouse family who has to relocate when the farmhouse they live in is torn down. It’s a beautiful story of hope and wishes coming true.
Your littles will completely fall in to Leea Baltes‘ watercolor illustrations which reflect the author’s love of Beatrix Potter. I can’t put into words how happy the illustrations made me as I read about Mama Mouse and her little babies. And when you see the craft I have to go with this gem of a book, you’re totally going to swoon.
James Brewster is at it again. Maybe I should say Uncle Rocky and his brave nephews are saving the day again. Picnic from the Glad to Do It! series is another winner that will have your kids celebrating everyday heroes even more than usual.
Because every little boy wants to be a firefighter. And Mr. Brewster knows how to make it exciting.
Even Easter Bunnies have bad days! The Grumpy Easter Bunny, a sweet story about a grumpy bunny who wants to keep all his Easter treats to himself, is great for having some Easter fun while teaching your littles not to be greedy.
It also offers lots of opportunities for educational fun. Not making it up, some of the most awesome Easter activites we’ve ever done were inspired by Justine Korman’s adorable picture book.
My hard crush on James Burd Brewster’s Glad to Do It! series is ever-expanding. I just love how Brewster bases these fun, upbeat picture books on real-life stories.
Plus, he always includes educational information about being a rescue worker. In Officer Jack: Stolen Puppy, Brewster walks your kids through how police run an investigation, showing the steps his officers take to find suspects. And if your kid doesn’t squeal over police cars, chances are puppies will do the trick. I’ve said it before, but I can’t recommend these books enough.
