Our bookshelf grows from college to the time we’re pregnant. And those shelves aren’t straining from Dr. Seuss or board books either. Books on pregnancy and parenting fill up our home, and if you now have a little girl just like me, books to build a stronger mother-daughter relationship are probably stacking up, too!
Be sure to choose books that are not only interesting or colorful but also teaches them some values and good habits. Ysha and I love reading books that make us feel like we are the main characters! 😀 Try reading these books with your kids and you’ll both have a great time too!
What books do you read to your little ones, mommies! I’d love to know and check them out too!
