Prior to having my little one, I used to read to her each night wile she was still in my tummy. I knew from that start that she enjoyed reading, because there was not a lot of kicking going on when I did read. It was such a nice feeling know that she loved it when I read her books. I made this promise that I would always read to her each and everyday for at least 20 minutes. When looking for books, I like to look for at least one book that I know she would love, which will make the story time even better knowing she is paying attention to it. Plus, when she likes a book I have to read it over and over and over again.
When browsing the internet, I stumbled upon this amazing website called Barefoot Books and as curious as I am, I started to browse their site. I was so excited and thrilled of the different kinds of wonderful books they are offering for children of all ages. The website itself is easy to browse through, I like the fact that you quickly can search books for your child by age range or subject. They sent me three wonderful hand-picked selections of Barefoot books.
The first one is Shrinking Sam by Miriam Latimer. As much as Sophia loves all three books, I must say that this one was Sophia's favorite. It is about a little boy called Sam, that gets smaller each time he is being ignored or not listened to. So Sam is going on several adventures along with his friend, as ordinary objects get bigger and bigger. This book kind of reminded me when I was little and no one listened to me. Sophia loved Shrinking Sam because she likes everything that is small, so she kept looking at the pictures. The colorful illustrations are remarkable and memorizing for any child even me. It is pleasant to look and it encourages you to read immediately just knowing what is being told in the book.
The second book is Prince's Bedtime By Joanne Oppenheim. It is about a little prince who can't get to sleep. So, the whole kingdom decides to help him get to bed. Until a mysterious woman mesmerizes him to sleep with an enchanted story.
