As I've mentioned before, books have been an important part of our daily routine from the beginning. In fact, I don't believe a day has gone by over the past ten months without turning the pages of a sweet story
I bought Madeline her first book months before she was even in my belly- a board book version of Guess How Much I Love You. In the throws of fertility treatments, this purchase served as a reminder of the little one that would eventually come, and the memories we would someday create as a family. Today, that book will forever remind me of that strange time in our life.
Books are funny like that- serving as symbols of various events throughout our lives. Over the past several months I can think of countless examples: The Poky Little Puppy will always remind me of the time my six month old sat patiently while I read the entire book to her (and that's a long one, folks); Giraffes Can't Dance will always conjur giggles as I remember my husband's rendition; I will forever think of Valentine's Day when I see You Are My Sunshine; and Bathtime Peekaboo will always make me nostalgic for the first time my mother read to my daughter.
And the truth is, no matter how many books one has in their library- there is always room fore more stories; more memories to be made.
Bookroo is an amazing way to create these moments for you and the littles that you love. Their subscription boxes come straight to your doorstep with 2-3 adorable books each month, with the option to choose either board or pictures books for the kiddos.
We chose picture books this go-around, and both Maddie and I loved our little goodies. The books were colorful and adorable; wrapped in kid-friendly packaging that were a pleasant surprise on an otherwise ordinary Wednesday afternoon.
Maddie loved them from the moment we opened them. And while they're a little too big for her to "read" to herself, I know someday soon we will make memories reading them as a family together.
I look forward to gifting a subscription to the book-lovers in my life- teachers, mamas, papas, mamas-to-be- so they can make sweet memories with the littles in their lives all year round!
