What Are You Reading Your Baby?

Elias loves to read, and I really want to encourage him to keep the books open. I love it when I peek into his room, and he is sitting on his yellow beanbag with a book. Often times I will catch him rambling non-english words interspersed with “ball” and “hat” thrown in. It is a precious sight.

Right now some of our favorite books are:

1. Paddington Bear Goes to Market by Michael Bond. In this story a cute bear meets his friend for a special morning treat.

2. Psalms For Young Children by Marie Helene Delval. This book has forty different Psalms paraphrased and illustrated for kid’s understanding and enjoyment. Mark reads this book to Elias as a devotional right before bed.

3. The Dragon and The Garden by N.D. Wilson. This book highlights the Gospel in the first few chapters of Genesis in a kid friendly and exciting way.

What is your favorite children’s book?

If you are looking for books and have a pre-school aged child you can get a free book every month if you sign up for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

  1. hey! i got that psalms book for him! I’m glad he likes it!! 😀 i am so glad he is filling his mind with sweet wonderful things! YOu are a good mommy 🙂

  2. I like those books! Where did you get that Dragon in the Garden book? You know how I am. I must have every children’s book ever written.
    Ezra’s favorite book is still Goodnight Gorilla. He always goes “Uh oh” when all the animals get caught.
    You should also check out “The Three Tree’s” Its a story about how these three tree’s encountered the life of Jesus as the manger, the boat in the storm and the cross. It’s so good!

    • Ezra is so cute! I love that he is starting to talk. I have heard about the Three Trees. I’ll have to find that one for Elias. Mark brought that Dragon in the Garden book back from his seminary, so I’ll have to ask him how you can order one or which store has it.
