Book Series: Old + New Favorites

Monday, March 25, 2013

I haven't posted as much as I've wanted during my March Up to Parr Book Series, moving takes up allll your time! I'm not sure if I've got much more this month for the series. (I'm really excited to share our new house though!) But here's some things that have been floating around in my head....

Let's face it, all the children's books that I love are special to me because I read them as a child! So it's hard for me to explore new ones. Hence this series! But while moving the past few weeks we came across a box of children's books from Nate's childhood. I found a real winner tucked away in there...

The House That Had Enough by P.E. King.
This is a great way to scare your kids into doing their chores! But it has a sweet ending of course. It's quirky enough to be enjoyable for adults too. And don't all kids dream about their furniture and toys having secret personalities?

Big Jeremy by Steven Kroll.
This one I am sharing because if you haven't read it, you need to! It's a lovely tall-tale about a giant who lives on an orchard in Maine. It's out of print so I was thrilled to find it on Etsy via Bountiful Books for $5!

If you are in a reading mood, here are some fun links about children's books:

Joanna shared a sweet idea: living out a favorite book.

Books for boys.

Also, DesignMom shares a favorite children's book every week!

Sorry if you follow me on Instagram and you already saw these...I need to stop being lazy and get out my real camera!
