Our Favorite Kiddo Books of 2017

One of my absolute FAVORITE  moments with my kids is reading to them!!! I’m sure its because I have such amazing memories of books & reading with my mom & dad.  Reading comic books with my dad when he would get home late from work. Saturday mornings at the library with my mom, coming home with stacks & stacks of books. We made countless library trips this year and wanted to share some of our favorites. Our reading abilities fall within 0 to 6 years old so the books recommended below are geared towards those age groups.

Don’t forget books make the best gifts!! Grab any of these as baby shower, birthday or even a Valentines day gift & you’ll be set!!!! Another tip: The thrift store is the BEST place to find books for $1.
