Whoever came up with the phrase The “Terrible Twos” was completely wrong. In fact, this might even be my new favorite age. Bennett will actually sit still long enough now for me to read him a book all the way through and now wants to read more than just board books that have flaps you can open. I love that we can read books during the day together whenever we need to something to do and love how it has created a bedtime bond between us every night. I know that one day I am going to look back at these fond memories of just the two of us, snuggled up together in a chair with a giant stack of books next to us.
Bennett’s favorite books used to be all of the “open a flap”board books (mainly every single book by Karen Katz) that are out there, but now he enjoys a book with more of a story. I find that each page can’t have too many sentences on it, or he stops paying attention, and wants to turn the page. I feel like we are in that in-between stage where he’s too old for board books, but not quite ready for the paper page books yet. There are some paper page books that we read to him, but I kind of struggle to keep his attention the whole time while we read them. I wanted to share with you some of our favorite books as of lately that seem to be the perfect mix for a toddler his age:
We have accumulated so many books over the past two and half years, that we were running out of places to put them! Our entire TV cabinet was stacked full and the storage cubes in Bennett’s room were starting to overflow with all of our books. I didn’t just want to get any ordinary bookcase for his room, I wanted to get something decorative and unique as well. We found the perfect one from Delta Children and its called the Happy Home Storage Bookcase. The bookcase comes in three colors; grey, white and dark brown. We own a lot of products from Delta Children and their products are always well made and seem to hold up nicely over time, so this was a no-brainer for us (plus, how stinkin cute is this bookcase?!)
Today I am partnering up with Incredibundles.com to give one lucky reader a $50 giftcard to use on their website. We recently received a custom book bundle from them and Bennett just loved it!
