Summer Reading Fun

IMG_5601.PNG

We love summer time and we love reading around here! Our local library has a summer reading program that my girls love to be a part of and they are already filling up their little list of all their fun books that we have read together so that they can turn it in at the end of the summer for a prize. It’s a fun way to keep them excited about reading and it gives us a fun reason to head to the library just about every week.

Of course, reading is so very important for many reasons but one of the reasons that I love the most is that it opens their eyes and hearts to places they have never been before. I strive to be intentional with the books that we check out of the library and get a few books about life in another country or culture so that they can see now as little ones that life isn’t always like their life here in America. I want them to see that children don’t always have lots of toys or that their names are different and foods are different. I also want to be able to walk alongside of them and answer their questions and remind them that even though cultures and countries and people are different, God created all people and He loves them deeply and so should we!

If you are looking for some fun books for reading time this summer with your little ones, here are some fun ones that we have and LOVE!!

National Book Lover’s Day!

Today just happens to be National Book Lovers Day and what better way to expose our little ones to other cultures than through reading books! Most of us can’t pack up and go to these different countries, but we can read to our little ones and help them understand a little of what it’s like to live in a country far away or live in a different culture 

Here are some of my favorite books that we have on our book shelf right now or we’ve grabbed from the library recently:
