Loved this one

All my girls love Peppa Pig and this one was such a fun read, even for the toddler. She made me read it multiple times. It's funny and cute. Peppa and her family are the sweetest and the pictures are well done. Just like the TV show!

If you're a parent, this book gets you right in the feels

I love stories about being a mom and the joys of parenthood. This book explores the joy of being pregnant, having your baby, and parenting from young to when they get older. There aren't a lot of words to it, it's just short, simple, and to the point. It's very...

So much love for this series of books

I loved the first Chickies book I read and I love this one just as much. It has everything I like in a young children's book - cute characters, simple yet colorful illustrations, rhymes, and a learning theme. I read this quite a few times to my kids when I...

Fun to play with and read

My 5yo is such a big fan of Peppa and I love that you get to incorporate adorable little magnets into the story as you read along. If your kid is a fan of the show, then they'll also love this book and playing with the character magnets. The story...

A fun way for babies and toddlers to learn sign language

I've always wanted to teach my baby sign language and this is a very cute and fun way to do it. The book shows kids easy words and phrases that they can practice. I like that it incorporates the picture of the object with the sound of the object so...

Fun little learning book for toddlers

I always love learning-type books for kids, especially for the baby. This one allows the child to touch, so they get a feel of what some animals kind of feel like. The pictures are all of real-life animals. You can also press on certain parts of the book to hear...

Cute jokes for kids

The title rings true for this book as the jokes are indeed corny, but perfect for little kids. The jokes are wholesome and somewhat funny, especially for young minds. The riddles are simple enough for kids to figure out, even my 5 year old, and the illustrations are on point...

Cute and fun!

If your kids like Shopkins, then they will love these adorable little stories featuring some of their favorite characters. It's very easy to read and I love that it includes stickers, which is always a hit with the kids. The story is simple enough, with a bunch of Shopkins babysitting...

Shopkins Fun!

My girls are Shopkins fanatics so they loved all the posters included in this book. Each page in the book is a poster that can be pulled out and hung up. They're a little bigger than an 8x10 sheet. Very colorful and includes a lot of well-known and fun characters....

So much love for this book

I seriously loved this book, possibly more than the kids did. I think that's because it depicts exactly what I, as a parent, felt when I had a new baby (each time). Babies can be a challenge, but they're also amazing, adorable, and so lovable. This book...

Rainy day fun!

In the same sense as the first book, the adorable Ava is back with her "itty bitty kitty" for some fun times indoors. Beings tuck indoors can be boring, but not if you have a good imagination. It was fun watching Ava come up with games for her and her...

Cute and family-friendly

This was definitely a cute book. I love how it teaches the importance of a particular family value: being different. You can't get more different than a duck and dinosaur and it was so cute seeing how the dinosaur and the ducklings show off. Feather and Flap...

Teaches a valuable lesson

This is definitely a good book to read around the holidays and I liked that it teaches a valuable lesson about how different cultures celebrate different holidays and that it's okay. Sure, Christmas is fun and all, but there's amazement and wonder to be found in all types of holidays...
