We have been reading a lot around here lately, thanks to a dear friend who gave me a HUGE bag full of books that her daughters were no longer reading. It was very exciting for the kids to have more than a dozen new stories to pour over. Mila was especially excited since they were mostly princess and girly books, something I never think to buy.
The Giving Tree
Hudson loved this book when he was younger and he was excited when he found it again recently. Now he reads it to Mila. I love the sweet story, even though it is also a little sad. Hudson always says, “This kid is so selfish… he takes everything from the poor tree!” But we still love it.
New Boots for Hudson
I got the book for Hudson for obvious reasons, but it is really such a cute story. It’s about a dog who is sick of living in Manitoba. He wins a trip to Miami and soon realizes there is no place like home. This is fun since not only does the lead character have my son’s name, but he visits Miami as well.
Disney Princess: Magical Moments (Book and Magic Wand)
This princess book came with a star wand that makes different sounds
when you touch the pages. (you can also push the button for magic on
demand) The only movie Mila has seen is Frozen, so she loves to ask me
the names of each princess. She looks at this books almost everyday and
she loves bringing the wand in the car.
Frozen Big Golden Book
This should come as no surprise. My sweet girl is (still) Frozen obsessed and this book from Grandma is her favorite. She has me read it to her in the morning and every night. I have started to realize the places I can cut corners a bit to make it shorter. (don’t judge) It mirrors the movie, which is awesome for her, since she can kind of ‘read’ the book to herself since she already knows the story.
Also today the trailer for a new Frozen short came out, click the link if you want to check it out! I know I will be showing it to Mila when I get home! It will be shown in theaters before Cinderella.
