February Book Basket & Tracker
First, I have to rightly address that I am linking affiliate links below which include links from Usbourne. I am a consultant with Usbourne. Anything I write below are my own thoughts and opinions and are not a reflection of the company. This means if I'm super controversial you cannot hold them responsible. I'm a loose cannon when it comes to books friends. LOL... you should probably laugh at that in case you didn't. No matter. I'm just going to envision everyone softly giggling to themselves as they read it and appease myself.
Illustrated Kids Bible - Can I just say that I love this new Bible I bought for Joe and I to read through. It goes through the Bible just like a regular Bible, but is sectioned off by story and is in a readable version for kids. It isn't just select stories, but the whole Bible. We are currently in Genesis and I have to say I am super impressed by it.
Where The Sidewalk Ends & Falling Up - We finished up Shel Silverstein's Everything On It last month. Joe loves these silly little poems and I enjoy reminiscing reading these with my mom. I've even used a couple to post in my Facebook groups because I love the simplicity of a powerful message and Shel Silverstein has a couple of them.
Love You Hoo - Love You Hoo was one of my first ever Usbourne books. It is such a cute book. Joe will request this book to be read to him and that just cements it even further in to my heart. If you want a sweet, sentimental book that you can read while you are cuddling your little person than I definitely recommend this one.
Cuddle Bear - This is a sweet feel good book that talks about offering and giving comfort when someone needs it.
The next couple of books we have not read yet, but are in the basket for us to read this month so I am going to list them and I'll definitely follow up with a review of them. Be sure to check out my youtube channel for my reviews of them.
Show Some Respect - This is a Berenstain Bears book which are some of my all time favorites. Again, it is super nostalgic for me to read these books with Joe, but I love that he gets engaged with them and even repeats some of the conversations we have read. In this book Brother Bear shows kindness to a younger bear that wants to help him fly his model airplane. Instead of getting upset and blaming the younger bear when the plane crashes he lets the younger bear help him make the necessary repairs so that they can fly the model plane again.
What Are Germs - For such a tiny book it is packed with information and knowledge that help you teach your child about how germs spread and how we can help prevent others from catching colds we have or from catching sicknesses from others. While this books is not directly about kindness, I chose the theme of dealing with germs because I believe that sneazing and coughing in to your elbow or staying home when you do not feel well is showing kindness and thoughtfulness for those around you.
I'm (Almost) Always Kind - This is a new book for us this month and might I just say that I absolutely adore the message. It is narrated by a little girl who talks about how her mom tells her it is good to be kind. She walks you through the ways that you can be kind and then launches in to an explanation about how sometimes when you think you are being kind, you are actually not being kind. For instance, when playing with a sibling, you may think it is kind that you are playing with them, but they do not like that you smashed their building. It comes down to that even when being kind you should be thoughtful and put yourself in the shoes of the person you are helping.
Mind Your Manners - This was another new book to us that I found exceptionally cute. It goes throught he different ways that we can be mindful and use our manners from using an inside voice to not litering and picking up after ourselves.
Kindness Makes Us Stronger - This is a cute and quick read with your kiddos. I love it because there are super short sentences on each page so Joe can help me with the smaller words he can sound out and because it is short we can work on word recognition. The book goes through different ways that we can help others and what kindness looks like.
How Can I Be Kind - This book, though it is small is a little bit of a longer read and is packed full of information. I love the overall theme and message of the book and Joe stays engaged because he gets to lift multiple flaps on each page we turn to.
Love From The Crayons - If you have any of the crayon series, then you will want to add this want to the collection. I love that these books have witty humor and that Joe gets a kick out of them as much as I do.
