Celebrating Valentine's Day with National Geographic + Giveaway

If you have been following my blog for any amount of time, then you know we love books! Especially books from National Geographic. I was going through our books recently to hand some down to my niece (since they are just starting their collection) and I realized so many of the books held memories. And it made me smile. My sister-in-law is starting her daughter off on the right foot and creating a night time routine early that includes reading. A student who reads 20 minutes per day will be exposed to 1,800,000 per year and is more likely to score in the 90th percentile on standardized tests. So starting these healthy habits early is great for a child's development so they can grow a love of reading.

Make Valentine’s Day special for your little bookworms with three books about things kids LOVE - baby animals, music, and dinosaurs!

Summer Reading with The Big Book Adventure and Canterbury Illustrated Classics

With my son going into kindergarten and my daughter going into third grade (but reading on a fourth-grade level already), I want to keep this momentum going. So, we have been reading all summer long! If you take a look at my Summer Bucket List Ideas, it included completing a reading log.

So, I searched the web and found this printable reading log that we have been using. And the kids are earning their rewards. Y'all let me know in the comments what some good reading log reward ideas are. Maybe something from my Spectacular Summer Toy Guide? Anyways, we were sent a wonderful book from Silver Dolphin that is great for summer reading and a new spin on some awesome classics!

Incorporate these guides and activities to celebrate reading with young people.

Easy DIY Lorax Costume

With my daughter, my mother-in-law made a "Cat In The Hat" embroidered shirt that was pink, but with my son I didn't want to bother her so I thought I would try something homemade and easy since that's how I roll.

March is National Reading Month. Which I have enjoyed talking about already with you all. But since reading and books is such a HUGE part of my family's lives, I wanted to share some more with all of you. There is just nothing like opening a new book and smelly the pages.

This enchanting storybook is a powerful way to show a child how absolutely unique and special she is.

Flower fairies bring letters one by one to spell out the child's name, while describing character traits that make the recipient alone the perfect princess.

Tips to Help Your Child Develop a LOVE of Reading + GIVEAWAY

This interview opportunity was sponsored by LeapFrog.

It’s no secret that the earlier kids start reading, the better their chances for success in school and in life. However, according to the US Department of Education, only about half of all young children who are three to five-years old are read to on a daily basis by a family member. Getting kids to start reading earlier sets them up for better chances of success in school and life. So, what can be done to boost those numbers and have a positive impact on kids?

Reading to Your Baby with DK Books

I received a complimentary Toddler Book Pack from DK Publishing for the purposes of review. All opinions are mine.
 Reading to your baby/toddler is very important. Hearing your voice and saying different words is how they learn to talk. It is also very beneficial for them socially. And what you read to your little one is very important as well. DK is a best-selling and award-winning children’s publisher with a crop of titles for babies and toddlers. DK books for early learners are perfect for children ages 0 to 3 and help provide a fun, hands-on playtime experience for babies and toddlers. DK books contain bright pictures, easy-to-read text, novelty features and more to excite and engage little ones. So when I received the opportunity to review a few titles from DK Publishing, I was very excited to share them with my 5 month old and 3 year old.
