Children's Books for Summer reading

Please note I was sent free product in exchange for this blog post.  All photos and opinions are my own.

Summer is almost here.  My kids love summer reading programs.  And we encourage them to look at and read books on a daily basis.  Sometimes, where the weather is nice, they opt to take their books outside to read instead of playing.  So before these two childrens books get worn out I'm going to share a quick review.

First up... "What on Earth?  Birds" by Mike Unwin and Pau Morgan.  I feed quite a few Goldfinch at our house and my kids enjoy identifying them as well as robins, cardinals, blue birds and red winged blackbirds.  This book is broad in its information about birds.  Not only does it include bird identification, but it explains birds anatomy, behavior, habitat as well as lots of craft ideas and fun facts and trivia.  A well rounded book with a little bit of something for every interest level and age level.  One time after reading it I noticed my daughter running around the yard looking for items to build a nest with.  She came back with some grass, twigs and leaves and left them out in the open.  She monitored the spot all afternoon to see if any birds came by to use her supplies.  Overall a nice hardback book, with cute pictures and tons of ideas to keep kids buys.    This book can be purchased on Amazon.  
 Next, is "Love Big" by Kat Kronenberg.  A cute animal fable about how to treat others and be kind.  The book takes place in the Savannah and the characters are various African animals.  The pictures in this book are very colorful and the characters change throughout the story as they learn to be kind, share and smile.  Ideal for ages 3 - 10.  Love Big can be purchased on Amazon
