Here’s a Book Kate Middleton Might Read to Her New Baby

As the royals and possibly the world wait for news on the newest baby, I thought about what book I might like to share with the baby.  To be sure, I would love to be appointed as the Royal Baby’s Librarian, but even if that never happens, I thought it might be fun to discover a new book.  My pick for  Baby’s new book is How Far Do You Love Me? written by Lulu Delacre and published by Lee & Low Books.

Imagine me reading this with a lovely English accent…

Isn’t that book delightful? Many thanks to Lee & Low Books for sharing this multicultural title with me.

Happy Reading from The Royal Baby Librarian!

Preschoolers Want Halloween Books Too!

Preschoolers don’t realize they are small.

They think they are just as big as the big kids.

And because of that, they want what all the other kiddos have.

They want Halloween books in their sizes too!

Literature for Babies: Baby Lit

I recently received two adorable books in the mail. They are part of the BabyLit series:  “BabyLit is a fashionable way to introduce your child to the world of classic literature.  Visit BabyLit.com for more information.”  I strongly believe that even the littlest of babies can enjoy books so these BabyLit books were a perfect choice.

I thought it would be fun to show whether the littles enjoyed these books or not.  The following are photos of me reading to babies 12 -18 months old.

Here I am presenting the title.  I’ve caught the attention of two little ones.

Unconventional Librarian reads Jane Eyre

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then as you can see little Miss Sophia is trying to upstage me!  Never work with kids and dogs, right?

Unconventional Librarian reading Jane Eyre

But I can’t help myself. Finally, she gets a copy of the book for herself.

She’s opening it upside down, but that’s ok! She’s getting a feel for how books look and feel. She’s finished with Jane Eyre.  What will she choose next?

Let’s see…

Unconventional Librarian reads Alice in Wonderland

I think it’s Alice in Wonderland by Little Master Carroll!

As you can see, the BabyLit books were a hit with my little ones! I highly recommend these books as the illustrations are beautiful and contagious enough for little ones to enjoy yet older children can follow along a little more closely for a more in-depth reading.

I give these books four paws!
