Happy August, friends! This month I was asked to collaborate on a fun craft project with some amazingly talented bloggers. Every month Lu from The Mama Workshop and Beth from Days with Grey team up together for a book box activity. And this month they invited me (along with two other creative bloggers) to participate! This month’s book is Dragons Love Tacos. This engaging and silly story is perfect for the preschooler crowd and lends itself to many crafting + learning opportunities. Dragons Love Tacos is a new book to our family, but it has quickly become a favorite of ours!

Whoo is Ready for Bed was gifted to us in exchange for my honest review. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
Ahh… Bedtime. The hour that brings both happiness and frustration to many parents of toddlers and preschoolers. In our house we go through ups and downs when it comes to bedtime with our 3 year old son, Noah. Some nights are better than others, but overall, bedtime is an area where we could use some extra help. Most nights when we tell Noah that it is time for bed, he gives us a million reasons why he can’t go to bed. Once he finally accepts that it is bedtime, he then begins to list all of the things he needs before going to bed. A cup of water. A pair of socks. A different matchbox car. ALL the stuffed animals. A different blanket. One more book. Another trip to the potty. Now a different pair of socks. One more hug. Typical threenager. Right?! Most nights it usually takes 30+ minutes to get Noah into his bed, which is exhausting at the end of a long day.
The end of July is already here. And that means one thing – back-to-school time is quickly approaching! Since my little preschoolers head off to school in less than a month, I thought I’d share our favorite back-to-school books today. We’ve been reading most of these books with Noah for the past couple of years. And since London is getting ready to head off to her 1st year of toddler preschool (tears!), we’ve acquired a few more back-to-school books and have started reading them with her as well.
We are thankfully blessed with two kiddos who enjoy reading. One of my favorite times to sit down and read to them is at bedtime. We don’t always get to do as much reading during the day as I’d like, but our bedtime routine always includes time for reading. In general, I aim to read between 4-6 books with them every night.
I don’t know about you, but I am always on the look out for good children’s books to add to our growing library, so on that note, I thought I’d share some of our favorite bedtime books.
