Giveaway winner: laura20v
We like books here at my house. A lot. My son starts asking me to read him books pretty much as soon as his feet hit the floor in the morning. And I keep finding Vivian curled up on my bed, flipping through the pages of her books- and she's only a year old!
I'm lucky enough to have help in finding great books for my kids. My mom is a librarian who specializes in children's literature, and my best friend teaches kindergarten. So whenever I need a recommendation, they're happy to give me a long list. But I know that my situation is unusual and that going to a bookstore or looking online for a book is really overwhelming for most people. There are just so many options!
Enter Little One Books. This is such a great site for anyone who is searching for a kids' book, music or DVD. All of the items on the site have been personally reviewed and hand selected, so you know you're getting a quality product. Little One Books specializes in products for birth through 5 years of age and the site is very easy to search (by age range or product type) so that you can quickly find just the book, DVD or music that you're looking for.
After looking around the site for a little while and being very tempted by all the DVDs and books and music that I saw, I decided that I'd like to review a book for Vivian. So I went to the one year old tab, selected books and browsed my options. I ended up receiving I Spy Little Book, and I've been thrilled with my choice!
Although I got this book for Vivian, Ethan has been reading it as well. The book is very simple with just a few questions of things to look for on each page, so it's not overwhelming for Vivian. She's been flipping the pages and looking at all the pictures. Ethan and I have been going beyond the basic "I Spy" clues and naming other items on the pages and searching for smaller items. I love books that grow with your child- this definitely is one that does that.
I have great news for you guys! One of you will get to have the "what to choose" dilemma as well! Little One Books has graciously offered to give one of my lucky readers a $25 gift certificate to their site!
