Welcome back!! I have 5 fantastic books to share with you this week. Hopefully you will find a few that your family will really enjoy.

I Dare You Not to Yawn is a very funny book structured as an instruction manual to help kids avoid being sent to bed early by their parents. There are lots of sound effects throughout the story which make it a great read aloud bedtime story. As a mom with two kids that have become increasingly anti-beditme this really hit home!

Dinosaur Rescue! is a beautiful picture book about the Dinosaur Rescue Team coming to the aid of a pickup truck that gets stuck on some railroad tracks. We see all the dinosaurs working together to make sure everyone is safe. Once all is right in their little dino world we get to see how they rest and play. There are also a ton of fun sound effects in this story and great end notes featuring the names of the dinosaurs and vehicles in the story.

The Story about Pingis the sweet story of Ping the duck who sets out for the day with his family on a boat and ends up getting left behind. We follow Ping as he sets out to find his family. Along the way he makes quite a few friends and finds his share of trouble. This book is another beautifully illustrated book perfect for reading aloud as a family.

The Seals on the Busis a fantastic take on the classic “Wheels on the Bus”! It is a great sing-along that is perfect for little animal lovers. My kids love anything that they can sing and dance along with and this was no exception. The bus is full of all kinds of animals and we honk, roar, eerp and so much more along with them on the bus.

Greenby Anita Loughrey is a great book to help little ones learn all about the color green. Anita Loughrey was a school teacher for 17 years before becoming a full-time writer. She has taken her knowledge from her many years teaching young children and mixed it with beautiful, bright and bold illustrations to help very young children start to understand the concept of the color green.

That’s it for this week! Please let me know below what you are reading this week or find me over on Facebook or Twitter!
