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!

Let the summer reading begin!

Summer is officially here, and libraries and bookstores everywhere are excited to share their summer reading programs with you!  The official summer reading theme for public libraries is Dream Big - Read!  If you and your child haven't yet visited your local library to sign up, now is the time!  Registration is open and signing up together is a great way to get your child excited about summer reading. My son loved keeping track of all of the books we read last summer, and couldn't wait to turn in his list and pick out a free book!

I came across a fantastic list of dream and night related titles for the Dream Big theme here, which even includes some fun songs and activities for various topics, too.  Check it out!

Several book stores (and other companies) offer summer reading programs and incentives, as well.  For details and more information about each one, click the links below.  An even bigger list can be found at the Kimble Krew's blog here.

Feeling left out and thinking that kids get all the fun? Teenagers and adults can join in the summer reading fun, too.  Their themes for this summer are:

Teens --  Own the Night
Adults -- Between the Covers

Happy reading!!
