Story time is the best time of the day. Whether we're snuggled up on the couch or cozy in our pjs before bed, reading stories with my little ones is one of my favorite things to do. Everyone has a favorite book they remember from their childhood, and every day, parents and kids are discovering new classics of their own. There are many fabulous children's books out there, some of which everyone knows about and others we would have never discovered had my son not simply pulled a random book off a library shelf. I created this blog to share some of these wonderful stories with you. Think of it as a year's worth of the best children's books around, since no day should be without a great story. In the end, I hope we'll all have discovered at least a few new titles that will have made their way onto our list of family favorites. Enjoy!

Happy birthday, Eric Carle!

Happy Birthday, Eric Carle!

We've thoroughly enjoyed celebrating this amazingly wonderful author all week, reading many of our favorite Carle books, eating our own caterpillar snacks, and attempting our own collage art.  We've also been honored to be a part of the Eric Carle Link-Up created by our friends over at An Amazing Child.  If you're looking for tons of fun, crafty, creative ideas, check out some of these fabulous links below. 

Oh, and if you live in the area and are interested in visiting the Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst, MA, check out Groupon today.  They are offering admission for two for only $9 (an $18 deal) and 15% off purchases in the gift shop.  We can't wait to get there ourselves!

Thank you, Eric Carle, for inspiring creativity and a love of reading in so many children around the world.  We wish you the happiest of birthdays and many more to come!
