Yesterday, I finally had cleared the bookshelf I'm going to use in the child's room. Sorry second child but you are starting out with a smaller bookcase than your older sister and it's a hand me down from my childhood.
The seven year old and I had gone through her books a few weeks ago because I also had her on operation downgrade the books because I needed more room in her extra closet her in her room. We pulled out all the board books that I had not donated, sold, or given away.
A picture of the top shelf so far..
There are a few more I want to add in or replace copies of our old ones that had to be eliminated.
Here are a few that I want to get the child...
Hello Animals! This looks like a cute board book and we do not have any black and white books.
Hello, Farm! We do not have any of the indestructible books and I think we got rid of all of our farm books! This one looks cute.
Dream Big, Little One I really want to add this to her collection! It contains a plethora of African American women role models. I love strong women books for my little women!
The Going To bed Book! I love Sandra Boynton books! I thought we had this one but it may have been destroyed! My seven year olds absolute favorite was But Not the Hippopotamus!
Little Blue Truck This is another that I thought we had already, but we apparently no longer do. I have fond memories of reading this when I was a nanny to the kids over and over again. They loved it.
There are obviously oodles more that I want to add but these are just a few that I think would be great additions to to our shelf.
What are some must haves on your children's bookshelves? Favorites to read over and over again? Favorite to gift?
