Oh, Baby, the Places You’ll Go! A Book to Be Read in Utero – Book Review 

As a child one of my favorite books was Oh, the Places You’ll Go!, I even remember enjoying it so much as a young adult when it was read in part at a graduation ceremony I attended. So I was excited to get Oh, Baby, the Places You’ll Go! A Book to Be Read in Utero as a baby shower book.

Best Lowly Worm Book Ever! – Book Review 

One of the coolest parts of being a new mom is finding out about children’s books. As a child I was an avid reader, and I knew I’d definitely enjoy sharing that love of reading with our child.

I formed my first opinion of the book during that hurried read, and now have reread it to fully form and report on my opinion.

Numbers/Numeros – Book Review 

As parents, Matt and I are delighted that William will be exposed to English and Spanish both at daycare. This may help make it easier for him to learn and retain Spanish, a commonly used language in California, at a later age. To help his learning and retention, I bought two bilingual books for Maribel to read to him including Numbers / Numeros. I first noticed this book due to the soft area on the front where a baby can feel what the down of a chick (un pollito) might feel like.
