Kids Books

My family includes people under the age of three. Therefore much of the entertainment I am questioning these days is Kids Books. In case you are in the same situation (or have an invitation to a Baby Shower or Birthday Party) Here is my selections of the best of our collection.  I look for books that my kids and I can both enjoy together.

Time for Bed

 Cute animals all have there mom tell them it’s time for bed. (“Time for bed Little dear little dear, the very last kiss is almost here.”) The cool thing about this book  – one of the animal familys is snakes!

    This was a wonderful list, some I have not seen before. “Angel in the Waters” and “Because Your Daddy Loves You” look very special.
