Friday Faves: Must-Have Children’s Book Gifts

Maybe it is because I taught English or because I write for a living, but I love books. Books give children the ability to imagine different places, characters, and endless possibilities. We’ve read these, owned them, some many times. I can’t wait until you get yours!

Children’s Book Must-Haves: 

  1. I Love You, Stinky Face An entire line of books about a boy who calls himself Stinky Face and how much his mama loves him. These are hysterical short, and great for any age.
  2. We’re All Wonders Moving, important, and impactful, our family loves this story of inclusion and acceptance.
  3. The Three Ninja Pigs Non-stop hilarity in this ninja spin on the traditional tale of the Three Little Pigs. Also, it rhymes.
  4. Dory Fantasmagory This was one of our first chapter books and if you have a hesitant reader, this is an easy read and so stinking funny that you will want to read it again and again. There are a few more in this series as well and we are working our way through them now.
  5. The Gruffalo A lovely rhyming story of a brilliant mouse who outsmarts all of the predators in the forest with his wild imagination. We LOVE this book, own it’s sequel, and the stuffed animal because we are the #1 Gruffalo fans!
  6. The Rhino Who Swallowed the Storm This book was written by a friend within the tiny house community along with Lavar Burton from The Reading Rainbow (cue all of my childhood memories). It is brilliantly written, expertly illustrated, and a beautiful way to explain emotions.
  7. Uniquely Wired Love the story of a boy whose brain works differently.
  8. The Invisible Boy This story of inclusion is beautiful and the kids will love it.
  9. Enemy Pie Funny and witty, this idea of friendship and kindness is wonderfully told.
  10. My Mouth Is a Volcano Our favorite book about interrupting addresses impulse control in a funny and easy-to-understand way.
