Happy International Children’s Book Day!

International Children's Book Day

In case you didn’t know, today is International Children’s Book Day.  In celebration of this totally random day, I have a couple of book recommendations for you.  These are books that my kids love, and I actually love reading these books to them, which is a good thing since I have to read them over and over and over…….


Maddie got Part-Time Princess by Deborah Underwood for her birthday this year, and it is one of my favorite books of all-time.  It is about a little girl who becomes a princess in her dreams, but not an ordinary princess-a princess who fights fires started by fire-breathing dragons then takes the dragons to tea to see why they are upset.  She saves her kingdom from many disasters throughout the book, while also enjoying bubble baths and pink cake.  Her mother also appears in her dreams as a queen from a faraway land, which I think is really cool.

I also love all of the Buzz Boy and Fly Guy books, written by Tedd Arnold.



These were Charlie’s first series of books, which he started collecting last year.  He doesn’t have all of them yet, but he’s not far off!  The Buzz Boy books are about a boy and his pet fly and their crazy adventures.  They are really short and fun and have taught Charlie a lot of sounds, especially ZZZZZZZZZZ….

So how are you going to celebrate International Children’s Book day? I would love to hear about your favorite children’s books!

    I love to read Billy Crystal’s book about being a grandparent to Arlo.. It talks about how I knew I would love you because I loved your mom… Makes me cry everytime.. I love snuggling with him and hugging on him while he loves to be read to.. He loves the book Funny Farm about a dog visiting his family at the farm… And my all time favorite book in the last 5 years or so is I love you through and through….yesterday, today and tomorrow too~
