Our Favorite Books from the Momma Society Community
One of our favorite activities to do with the kids is make visits to the library and get a book or twenty to read for the week. Aside from the classics like The Giving Tree or Goodnight Moon, sometimes the amazing selection of kids’ books can feel a little overwhelming. I asked our moms in the Momma Soceity Private Facebook Group what their favorite books to read with kids are and they did not disappoint!
One // I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! // This is a #MommaSocietyMomApproved choice and has been added to our ever growing library list. Can’t wait to read it!
Two // The Bad Seed // A friend recommended this and I love the message -- a sunflower seed starts out rotten but realizes he wants to be good. A great lesson for the kiddos!
Three // Madeline Paris is on my brain this week and I love the Madeline series. I love mixing classics in modern books to keep our home library interesting.
Four // The Wonderful Things You Will Be // This is one of our current family favorites and it has such a sweet message. Perfect for inspiring little hearts and minds.
Five // Grumpy Monkey // Have you ever been in a situation where the sun is shining, the day is perfect, yet your toddler cannot help but have a bad attitude? This book is a funny and smart way to address it. Highly recommend!
Six // Wee Hee-Hee: A Collection of Pretty Funny Jokes and Pictures / This book is great for slightly older kids. I purchased it on a whim and it has quickly become one of Brody’s favorites. He gets a kick out of the jokes!
Seven // My Mom is Magical // Unicorns and sparkles - that’s what mom’s are made of, right? I love a sweet, affirming board book and this one is just the ticket. You can also snag the dad’s version, My Dad is Amazing here.
Eight // Snuggle the Baby // This is one of Isla’s current favorite reads. We read it at least twice a day and I think it’s a perfect prepper for baby #3.
Nine // Just Ask // I love an inspiring kids’ book and this one nails it. For any kids that feels different, this book is a perfect affirmation that they are and always will be perfect and worthy.
Ten // You Belong Here // Another #MommaSocietyMomApproved read. The illustrations are gorgeous and the message is so sweet. It makes a perfect keepsake book.
Eleven // Tomorrow I’ll Be Brave // Today is sort of scary, could tomorrow be easier? I love that this book teaches kids to take things one day at a time and everything, including bravery, will be a little easier tomorrow.
Twelve // Just In Case You Want to Fly // Our last pick is another #MommaSocietyMomApproved book and I love the illustrations and writing. This is a perfect book for a kiddo starting a new adventure, like moving or starting school.
