We adore our multilingual books over here, but this one is definitely special! It’s written the way that we hear a lot of our multilingual friends speak - mixing the two languages together seamlessly. I’m so impressed that the author can not only think and write - but also RHYME - in English and Spanish at the same time. Plus, I’m a sucker for a book with a recipe. This has been Fin’s most requested all week. Her favorite character is the gato with an umbrella! Now I want all the recommendations of your favorite bilingual/multilingual books! #mamacan #consciousparenting #sgkids #sgmom #fcpl #homefortheholidays #montessori #raisingreaders #bilingualkids #bilingualkidsbooks #diversebooks #bookstagram #kidbookstagram #kidlit #picturebooks #spanishbooksforkids #spanishbooks #raisingareader #thirdculturekids #childrensliterature #susanmiddletonelya #leechapman

Raising a reader, not only just become a reader. Let them to explore more the soul of the book, understand the message and attach to the book itself. . . . Bookstore is a family library taste, just sitting down then enjoy the book what you love. #ahractivities #ahr44mos #raisingareader #1000bukudalam5tahun #bookliteracy
Hayattaki engeller her ne olursa olsun; Paylasildiginda, asilamayacak hicbir engel yoktur. #feridunoral in butun cocuklara ithaf ettigi resimleriyle de beni benden alan bu sevgi dolu enfes kitabi yetiskinlerin uzerinde cok da dusunerek miniklere okumasini diliyorum. Hepimiz farkli ama ayniyiz. Bircok farkliligimiz bizi birbirimizden ustun yapmadigi gibi eksikligimiz de degil. Ayni oyanin baska renkleriyiz. Kimimiz örtü olmus masanin uzerine serilmis, kimimiz bir yastigin kenarina ilistirilmisiz. #farkliamaayni #yazar #author #illustrator #illustration #cocukkitaplari #childrenbooks #childrenliterature #cocukedebiyati #cocuk #books #turkishauthor #turkishchildrensbooks #turkishchildrensauthor #cocuklaricinyazmak #turkceokuyorum #kizimlaokuyorum
#invitationtoreadandplay R E A D I N G T I M E 📚 Sometimes it's not easy to get a hyper toddler to sit down for some reading 😅. Z generally loves books and is happy when I read with him but when he is in this #toddlermood that no one can analyse or fathom 😲 it is a bit of a task to get him to do anything. But I've found setting up a space for him to explore the books openly along with a dangling carrot in the form of toys definitely helps. So when I got these lovely #ladybird books, I paired them with his colorful toys and voila we went through all the 3 books! As I read on a post from @readaboo , the best/earliest time to get your kids to read was yesterday. 😁 . How do you encourage your kids to read ? . . . . . . . #reading #raisingareader #toddleractivities #toddlerbooks #bookish #bookshelf #books #play #newlearning #bibliophile

Christmas dreams
This book is almost 50 years old and still captivates children anticipating Christmas. My son is almost 4 and trying to decide if Santa is friend or foe. Why are we ok with a stranger creeping into our house😂? This book is helping him figure things out, as it did for me when I was a little girl. ❤️🎄🎅🏻🏠 . . #book #bookstagram #story #storytime #toddler #baby #education #learning #childhood #bedtimestories #bedtime #winterreading #imagination #keepkidslearning #learningthroughplay #reading #preschoolreaders #onceuponatime #bookclub #babies #babiesandbooks #christmas #readingisfun #readingisfundemental #kidbooks #bookworm #raisingareader #kidlit #childrensbooks #santaclaus
When you’re a Stick Man, you are especially vulnerable to the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune. Dogs want to fetch you, birds want to use you for their nests, and heaven forbid you should end up in a fireplace... A hilarious tale by the creators of The Gruffalo, Stick Man is an Odyssey in which the hapless hero simply wants to get home to the Family Tree, and only a Christmas miracle can make that happen. This book about sentient kindling is a must for your kinderlings. @kinderlingradio #odyssey #juliadonaldson #axelscheffler #kidlit #raisingareader #childrensbooks #christmasbooks #teachersofinstagram #toddlerbooks #kidlitart #earlychildhoodeducation @panmacmillan #harpercollins

We used #signlanguage to start learning about animals when she was around 13mos. She knew how to say several animals using her hand. Her favourites were fish, crocodile, duck and monkey. Today is my golden lucky day to film her. She kept concentrate though she knew I was holding a phone. #animalrecognition #raisingareader #booksmakelearningfun #19monthsold
Henry is supposed to practice blending his sounds over the break. So of course we need new books for that. I told him to pick three out of these options. He’s picked four. #raisingareader
We got to see a classic come to life tonight (and it was amazing!).❤️🎄🚂📚 #polarexpress #parkdistrictstyle #raisingareader #bookstagram
"The Adventures of Beekle" by Dan Santat is a story that encompasses hope, courage, friendship and imagination. Told from the perspective of an imaginary character, called Beekle, we share his feelings and join him on his journey in search for the perfect friend. . Beekle was born in a faraway island where imaginary characters lived, hoping to be picked by a real child. When his turn never came, he sets off on his own to find his special friend. . This is such a sweet story with vibrant illustrations that capture our hearts. ⠀ .⠀ #beekle #kidsbookstagram #abookaday #picturebook #childrensbook #kidlit #kidsbookswelove #kidsbooks

The @guardian called it 'a thought-provoking picture book,' and we think it would make for an excellent #Christmaspresent 🎁#TheKingWhoBannedtheDark is a powerful story about how we need the dark in order to enjoy the light 💡 - #picturebook #political #kidlit #childrensbooks #childrensbookillustration #kidlitart #handlettering #yellowandblack #thekingwhobannedthedark #youngreaders #bedtimestories #raisingareader #illustration #christmas #giftguide
If you could be any kind of animal, what would you be? Would you be a dog that goes ARRRROOOOOOO? Or maybe you would be a sharp-toothed dinosaur that can CHOMP, STOMP, ROAR! Perhaps you might want to be a hopping frog that goes BOING, BOING, RIBBET! But maybe you would want to be the best kind of animal of all: a child! With joyful, impressionistic illustrations by Chris Raschka and text from author Jamie A. Swenson that invites playful interaction, this is a perfect book to read aloud to toddlers. After months of enjoying the book with little Miss A, I was excited to read this book at class. Combined with a number of animal sound and action activities, this was one well spent hour with the little ones. (watch my story and highlights for a closer look at the animal dice we made) #babybookbabbles #toddlercrafts #crafts #mommyblogger #momblog #raisingreaders #raisingareader #readout #childrenbooks #kidlit #animalbooks #picturebooks #readaloud #readtokids #readwithkids

We got to review some lovely books that only come once in while and we had quite a few of them this week at #TokaParent ⠀ 1. ‘Dance of the Wild’ 👆🏼is definitely one such book! A stunning and evocative picture book about a girl, Shilu, who loves to dance naked, much to her grandma's chagrin. But Shilu doesn't see why it's wrong. After all, Pirate the cat doesn't wear clothes. This is a beautiful book wittten by @richajharj with illustrations by #RuchiMhasane makes a child come up with positive and individualistic responses to their bodies and their identities. The only book from India this year to make it to the coveted #WhiteRavens catalog of book recommendations from around the world for the young, collated by the #International Youth #Library in #Munich .⠀ ⠀ 2."It was a boring day," begins Sowmya Rajendran's book, ‘Suddenly Cow’ published by @booksmsmoochie.....Not for long! The #story meanders into a #quirky and fabulously #funny tale about how a cow wanders into little Anu's day every time she is on the spot in some way!⠀ ⠀ 3. A clever, witty, and important little picture book, 'Pink and Blue' by #RituVaishnav gently but powerfully examines the deepest gender restriction embedded in minds, both young and old.⠀ ⠀ Book reviews on the blog now!

A true Holiday classic is this picture book by James Kruess! In perfect rhyme that is great fun to read aloud Kruess tells the story of Annabelle and Ladislaus - a doll and a teddy bear that stay behind in a big department store on Christmas Eve. Nobody wanted or bought them. They are sad. But then the phone rings: Santa needs a doll and a teddy bear! The whole family loves this book... ❄️❄️❄️ (You can purchase this and other holiday books at our christmas store (link in bio) or rent it, of course)
#100years 💜 This morning I read that it is 100 years ago today that woman were able to cast a vote in the UK for the first time ever. What a moment in history that was. How it must have felt for those first women, thinking this was a step towards an equal place in society with their husbands, fathers, brothers. For centuries of course women had literally, been the property of men. But here they were (some of them) casting a vote. They must have wondered what else was about to change. Certainly all women can now vote in the UK, and we are no longer owned by the men in our lives. But there’s still a gender pay gap, women are still routinely blamed for the actions of men (from the girl in the playground who is told he only flipped up her skirt because he likes her, to the young woman in the dock being asked what she was wearing and how much she drank), and there are many who think that the fight for equal rights is bringing about the demise of men (which honestly, is ridiculous, but that’s a whole other post). Look it’s not all bad. I don’t need anyone’s permission to write this, I can earn money, I can dress how I wish, those women 100 years ago will think it’s all pretty good now. But just because we’ve come this far doesn’t mean we should only come this far. How amazing to think that vote took place 100 years ago and started a (albeit slow) period of change. I wonder what we’ll achieve in the next 100 years. #boysareequaltogirls

Dream Snow By Eric Carle Day 13 of our Holiday Book Countdown brought us one of all time favorite author/illustrators, Eric Carle. We love so many of these books and this one was no exception. Saske was more excited to explore this book than any other so far. The book has clear laminated pages with snow outlines that sit on top of the illustrations. We talked about shapes and tried guessing what was under the snow. Saske loved that it had a different feel than regular book pages. He also loved the little lights on the tree in the last page. It was a wonderful book. Our favorite so far this year.
•Baby's Christmas• . . . . If you have a baby and you celebrate Christmas, this is one of the cutest books you could get. This is another from our home library, can you tell I just adore the little Golden books?? They are so nostalgic and whimsical in a way that modern books just can't be. I love the gilded spines and old timey illustrations. This is also a nice short read, perfect for babies and toddlers! We found this copy at a thrift store, as we have found most of our little Golden books. The picture of the baby in the bouncer reminds me so much of my daughter last Christmas. 😢 My family really enjoyed revisiting this story this year, and I know it will be on our holiday reading list for years and years to come!
Two more #christmasgiftideas —The first—As We Grow, by Libby Walden and Richard Jones. Walden has a way with words, taking simple sentences and transforming them into lyrical poems that flow effortlessly. And, Jones has a talent for creating beautiful scenes that will charm every reader. The colour palette, much like Feelings, is soft, earthy. Texture gives the illustrations depth and depicts gentle movement. The story itself is a journey through life, from the opening of eyelids for the very first time to the setting of the evening sun. “We are all astonishing—we grow in different ways and the chapters of our lives create a story to amaze!” This book amazes. It’s my share for #kidlitpicks_rhymingreads . Discover more with @alittlebookhabit and @spiky_penelope. . The second book is a must for #kiwikids and anyone who would like to learn about our homegrown legends—OH BOY: A Storybook of Epic NZ Men, by Stuart Lipshaw. Featured are names you may know because of their outstanding achievements—Sir Edmund Hillary, Peter Jackson and Steven Adams, and others you’ll quickly come to admire. All overcame challenges to make their mark in history and in our hearts. The illustrations, like the men this book celebrates, are bold, powerful, striking and full of personality. If you love the companion book GO GIRL, or others like Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls and Stories for Boys Who Dare to be Different, definitely add OH BOY to your All I Want for Christmas is Books wish list.
FEATURE 🍎 “With scrumptious illustrations by @_annawalker_ and rhythmic poetry by @janiegodwin , you’d be hard pressed to find a more moving and gentle exploration of the year.” —@booksandbabycinos. #kidlitpicks_rhymingreads
Welcome to the world of the Wilderking and Feechiefolk! These books are captivating at first glance! Adventure, Imagination, Humor....these books have it all. They are a fantasy rendition of the story of King David. We read the first book as a read aloud which hooked my kids and they immediately requested the other two. Both my 5th grade boys and my 2nd grade girl read them and loved them. If you are looking for a fun series, try these! So glad we added them to our library! 📚 ❤️ 📚 #wilderking #countdowntochristmas #readaloudrevival #raisingareader #kidsbookstagram #kidlit #childrensbooks #middlegradebooks
My son loves this book and I mean LOVES it. #wedonteatourclassmates is more than just a household favorite, it’s an obsession. The pages are wrinkled and worn, the book jacket is crumpled and torn. He takes it to bed with him, he requests that we read it over and over, he imitates his favorite part with such enthusiasm (when Walter the goldfish tries to eat Penelope). This book even comes to dinner with us. I just ordered 2 of the author’s other books in hopes he likes them just as much! #raisingareader #kidsbookstagram #littlereader
ARE YOU THERE LITTLE REINDEER? 🎄 A delightful Christmas peekaboo book. 🎄 Little reindeer is lost, join in the fun and help the animals find little reindeer. Is he hiding behind any of the cut out shapes? Probably not, as an array of animals are discovered. 🎄 This is an extremely tactile book that makes you want to touch it and discover the secrets inside. It has cut out shapes and trails of dots to run your fingers along. The illustrations are exquisite, it is just a really beautiful Christmas book and one that will stand up to the demands of babies and toddlers, meaning that even the youngest of children can enjoy a Christmassy story. Highly recommended. . . . #usbornebooks #usbournechristmasbooks #littlepeepthroughbooks #areyoutherelittlereindeer #christmasbooks #christmasbooksforkids #christmasbookstagram #christmasbook #raisingareader #boardbook #kidslit #childrensliteracy #booksforbabies #bookcover #bookreview #readingforchildren #getkidsreading #getkidsreadingyoung #igbooks
❄️ When It Snows ❄️ We read this beautiful book and decided to make our own unique #snowflakes . The canvas snowflakes were made my making snowflakes out of tape (swipe to see) and then painting around the tape. Once the paint dries, we pulled it off to reveal our snowflakes. The snowflake ornaments were made by painting popsicle sticks white and then glueing them into a snowflake. (Keep swiping to see more.) We then picked out beads that we felt were “snowflake” colors and glued those on to the snowflakes. #parentingtheprincipal #raisingareader #tistheseason #kidscrafts #christmas #christmascrafts #magicofchildhood #magicofchristmas #candidchildhood #letthembelittle #playmatters #littleartist #craftykids #montessoriathome #homeschool
