Next 100 - 500 Books Down to 1,000 Before Kindergarten

October 30, 2017

 

My goal was to hit 500 books before baby #2 arrived. As the days continued and I became more and more anxious and ready for baby to get here - each day that came without labor I would think okay more time for girl and I and our goal of books. Proud to say we reached this goal just prior to Halloween on October 30th 2017.

 

When selecting books I follow the ones pulled out and selected by the librarians. The pretty picture books on top of the shelves in the stands are often pulled out because they are a favorite of the librarian or they fit within a theme.

 

It is really fun to read books in themes with your kiddos because you see how the same topic can be shared and approached differently. Here are our Top Ranking Reads as we reached 500 books!

 

Looking for some reccomended reads check the list below - or message me with what you are looking for and I will share what we have read. If you have a book you loved please send the name my way we would love to check it out!
