We all love reading in our family! If there’s one thing I never feel bad investing in, it’s definitely books for my kids. There are just so many cute options out there, and I particularly love picking up new books from local bookstores as mementos for the kids to remember a location or vacation. There are also so many favorite books from when I was a little girl that I still have on my kids’ bookshelves! Lots of them have special messages written in them from friends and family. Since we’re always discovering some new favorites, I thought it was a good time to update my Favorite Kids’ Books series with the ones we have been loving lately. Let me know if there are any books your kids love that we need to check out!
