I’m always on the hunt for good children’s books to check out from the library or purchase for our family library. And judging from the number of emails I receive asking me for children’s book recommendations, it appears I’m not alone.
So I thought it would be fun this summer to feature a few of the books we read and enjoy each week.
Roxaboxen by Alice McLerran has recently become one of our children’s favorite picture books. It tells the story of the author’s mother and neighbors who used boxes, sticks, shells, and more to create an innovative town complete with a bakery, ice cream shop, and jail.
My children are always fascinated and inspired when we read this book. I love how it sparks their creativity and gives them new ideas for imaginative play.
