• Some of our favorite children’s books right now •
With a fresh cup of warm coffee, plenty of snacks and a warm blanket within reach, we enjoy spending hours and hours reading through our favorite children’s books. Me reading for both of my girls, them reading by themselves, or what I like most of all, Eleanor reading for Alma.
Spending time reading with my children always brings a bit of calmness to my life, and makes me come to terms with all those things I thought I was going to do, but never got around to doing that day either.
Here’s a list of some of our favorite books right now:
