This month’s books are an eclectic mix. I usually link the books so you can get your own copy, but one of the books this month was thrifted. So unless you’ve got a time machine…


The Pigeon HAS To Go To School

We will buy and read every Mo Williams book ever written. The Pigeon books are so funny. I have heard some moms don’t dig how sassy The Pigeon is, and I get it, but I think that’s the joke. My kid loves watching The Pigeon overreact and fly off the handle because she know it is just that. I say give your kiddos some credit and a chance to laugh.

Llama Llama Misses Mama

Hand’s down best off-to-school book EVER. We read this a ton the summer before we started half-day Montessori school and it was so helpful. Giving kids a Fram of reference for these emotions is super important.

Biography of a Bald Eagle

I don’t have a link to point you to purchase this book because I found it at a local antique store for fifty cents. Honestly, I bought it because there was a legit library card in the back and it made me super nostalgic. Turned out to be a really good read.

The Story of Ferdinand

A classic must-have. Love Ferdinand. Kids always laugh at him sitting on the bee and who doesn’t love watching kids laugh. Sweet and tense at parts, I’m glad my kids love this book as much as I do.

Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls

We are restarting this one. We got a few pages/people in and it just didn’t hold interest for my 5YO at the time. We’re going to try again now that we’re edging closer to 7.

Lena’s Baby Brother

When I asked my girl to pick out books for this month she added this one in and I think I’m going to just take the compliment and go. She memorized this book while I was writing it. Lena’s Baby Brother is a funny and, ultimately, sweet look at what happens when you get a baby brother.

Happy Reading!
