With Christmas coming I had to share some children's books that I adore, they deserve a place in your home as well.
The books by Munro Leaf are my most favorite books, Ocean loves them.
The illustrations are cute, simple and quirky and his writing style is wonderful.
I love the way he conveys his message in a fun and goofy way without being dumb.
We have 5 of his books, only 4 of which are pictured here. I found the first one at a thrift store and it sent me on a treasure hunt trying to find more, online and at bookstores.
They really are the best books, scroll through the photos a bit and you will fall in love.
How to Speak Politely and Why by Munro Leaf
Manners can be fun by Munro Leaf
(my favorite part of the book, Ocean loves this part as well and will call us out when we are being "Whineys" or "Piggies")
How to Behave and Why by Munro Leaf
I loved this. Four basic rules- be honest, fair, strong and wise.
He goes into depth and explains what each of those traits mean.
Ocean and I repeat this to each other a lot throughout our day.
Reading can be Fun by Munro Leaf
See what I mean? I love these books!
The books below are a few other favorites...
You are to me by Rebecca Doughty
A sort of poetry, this book makes me think of a Weepies song.
The Lorax by Dr Seuss, quite possibly the best book on environmentalism out there.
What is God? Since we aren't religious but have many family members and friends who are we wanted to get a book that explains different beliefs and thoughts about God as a being, idea or person without any biases, this one does just that.
