Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Those are just some of the animals your little will find in I Like Animals from Wide Eye Books. Written and illustrated by Dahlov Ipcar, the book features beautiful and classic illustrations in a 70s style motif. The book brings a nostalgic feeling of finding a gem in the library when you were a kid! Accompanied with the animals in his life—and I’m not just talking about our old English bulldog Doug!—Carter loves to play and read the afternoon away with this book.

Storykins // Whale Watching

The deep blue blows my little Babiekins’ mind. We’ve watched ocean life documentaries open mouthed; In awe of this incredible world under the waves. So it will come as no surprise that one of our favourite bedtime reads is ”If You Want To See A Whale” by the New York Times bestseller writer of ”And Then It’s Spring” Julie Fogliano.

” If you want to see a whale you will need a not-so-comfy chair and a not-too-cozy blanket because sleeping eyes can’t watch for whales and whale’s won’t wait for watching.”

Erin. E. Stead’s delicate illustrations are beautifully composed.  Leading you on a journey with a cute flame haired boy; his trusty basset hound and a tiny bird friend in tow trying to avoid daydreams and natures distractions to patiently wait…and wait…

Still, when we read this book together; Edie gasps when she sees the whale under the boat as if it was the first time. Adorable. This book is sure to be a big part of my Babiekins’ childhood memories of calm bedtimes.

There are some books so sweet, they can bring tears to your eyes. In rhyming whimsy with steadfast storytelling, “An Awesome Book“ by Dallas Clayton, is an uplifting and touching one that helps you and your little remember “to dream a dream as big as big could ever dream to be.” A very important message that we as adults, often forget. What started out as a project inspired by Clayton’s own son, has now turned into a series of fantastical books all of which have an air of thoughtful playfulness, reminiscent of classics like Dr. Seuss and Shel Silvertein. These books are a fun read with heartwarming sentiments that truly resonate.
An interactive online version of “An Awesome Book” is available at www.veryawesomeworld.com in its entirety read aloud by Clayton along with his other titles like “Make Magic! Do Good!” and “It’s Never Too Late” for purchase on Amazon.
