Blogging Break: Welcome Baby GreenBean

He's arrived! Baby GreenBean arrived on Tuesday and he's already a reader! Of course I would expect nothing less from my little guy! 


So of course you understand if I take a short blogging break over the next few weeks. There may still be some posts but they will be more sparse for awhile . I need to spend time reading to Baby GreenBean and hopefully getting some sleep! I'll be back to blogging more regularly soon. 

In the meantime, do you have any suggestions on favorite board books or picture books for Baby GreenBean? If love to add to his library!!

  1. Congrats, Sarah! Your baby is SO cute. Of course you deserve a break to enjoy your baby.

    I'd suggest some books for you but my daughter is in high school and I'm sure you already know the ones we read because they are the popular ones like Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Pat the Bunny, etc. Enjoy your time with your sweet baby!

  2. Ahhh, congratulations! He's so sweet :)

    I think my kids' all-time favorite picture book is CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM. Your is a *bit* too little for it yet, but it's a great one!

  3. I really love the Begin Smart series for newborns and younger babies. "Peekaboo Kisses" was a big hit in the early months too and still stands the test of time.

  6. Congratulations! Of COURSE he's already a reader. He's got the best mom showing him the way! I'm partial to Mem Fox's books - especially Ten Little Fingers, Ten Little Toes and Time for Bed. And Leslie Patricelli's books! Yummy Yucky is my fave.

  8. My daughter's favorite board book

    http://www.amazon.com/Kiss-Good-Night-Sam-Books/dp/0763621145

    We read it before every nap and bedtime. Very soothing cadence and gives the opportunity for many head kisses before laying the baby in the crib. I seriously think she knew that she was supposed to go to sleep after we read that book!

  9. Congratulations! He's a lucky baby! Seconding the BeginSmart recommendation, and Kiss Good Night, Sam. We also really liked: ABC, Baby Me! by Susan Katz, 10 Little Fingers and 10 Little Toes by Mem Fox, Everywhere Babies by Susan Meyers, Goodnight Gorilla (of course), Hug by Jez Alborough, and various by Sandra Boynton, Helen Oxenbury, and Leslie Patricelli. Happy Reading! So happy for you.

  12. Congratulations :) He is just beautiful! My favourite kiddie books are Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes by Mem Fox and Hairy Maclary by Lynley Dodd (the second title is a New Zealand classic). Both have fantastic rhyme and repetition

  17. Congratulations!

    We love Sandra Boynton and Caroline Jayne Church's books: "How Do I Love You?" "Good Night I Love You" and "I Love You Through and Through". There are four "Llama Llama" board books that have fun rhymes and actions.
