Best Boy Books: Movement and Books!

We love highlighting new books every month. This month we wanted to highlight one that would not only give your little one a love for reading but also a love for moving! This fun book encourages kids to get up and move. So much of our time now is ruled by a screen, so it is great when we can find ways to interact with our kids without a screen!

Boogie Monster by Josie Bissett encourages kids to get up and shake their bodies! The Boogie Monster loves to travel the world and he loves to dance. he discovers that no one dances the same, everyone has a unique dance style. He loves to show off dance moves, and he suggests many for your kids to try while reading. Ants in the pants dance, helicopter in the sky dance, and a bear after honey dance. It really motivates little readers to get up and shake their booty.

It is a fun book to read with toddlers and early readers. Just be ready to shake your booty!

Best Books: Peppa Gives Thanks

In our house Peppa Pig is a HUGE favorite. All of my kids love the pig family. Peppa and George are the absolute favorites, but everyone is enjoyable in this sweet pig family. We love the adventures that the books and show take us on as a family. But this year I was incredibly impressed to see that there was a new book for the holiday season. While the book does not explicitly mention Thanksgiving, which is of course an American holiday while Peppa Pig and her creator are from the UK, the book discusses the idea of being thankful and even culminates with a dinner at the end. The idea of Thanksgiving in a universal idea; to be thankful and open to sharing our love, gratitude, and compassion with others. Although American’s associate Thanksgiving with the sharing of a meal and a special cooperation between the Puritans and the Native American’s, it is really about the American Ideal: the ability to coexist with other backgrounds and cultures while not losing anything from one’s own background. Peppa Gives Thanks allows children and parents to make a connection between being thankful and sharing all year long. It shares a meal and an idea to remind others what we are thankful for and to continue that behavior all year long. Parents and kids can even use the card at the end of the book to write down what they are thankful and grateful for. What will you write about?
