board books

Nerdy Book Club Post

My post went live over at the Nerdy Book Club this morning.  If you’re unfamiliar with this blog, which is facilitated by Donalyn Miller, Cindy Minnich, and Colby Sharp, then click here to check it out now.  If you love books, then it needs to be on your blogroll!

I wrote a post about board books because I’ve spent a lot of time and effort finding quality ones to read with Isabelle.  Once I knew this post was due in early June, I spent a few months watching Isabelle carefully when I read books to her. I paid careful attention to the books she gravitated to on her own in addition to what she did when we read them together. By early May, I was able to discern what she seemed to like out of all of the board books in our house. I combined her likes with my favorites and was able to write a post about the Top Ten Board Books.

If you are a parent to little ones or are an aunt, uncle, cousin, or grandparent to a child under three, then I hope you’ll check out the list I created. (NOTE: It’s not written in a David Letterman “Top Ten” kind of way. It’s structured in two ways: why I love it & why my daughter loves it.) To that end, if you have other board books you think I should know about, then please let me know what they are. I’m closing comments on this post so please leave a comment on the post I wrote over at the Nerdy Book Club. (Click here to read it.) I’m always up for suggestions when it comes to reading with my daughter!
