I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite times of the day is cuddling up with my five-year old son and reading a good book! With the amount of attention I spend with my newborn daughter lately, it’s a great time for my son and I to just spend time together.
We’ve decided to put a fun spin on our reading this month. We are planning on reading 100 books! We are hoping to find some new books we haven’t read so please join my Facebook community and tell us what you like to read with your kids! Lots and lots of suggestions are welcome!
Our favorite book so far has been We All Went on Safari– A Counting Journey through Tanzania by Laurie Krebs and Julia Cairns. This book teaches kids to count in Swahili while discovering African animals on a safari though the grasslands of Tanzania. Facts about Tanzania, Swahili counting, and a map are included at the end of the book. The neat thing about this book was that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book went to the African Wildlife Foundation, to aid in their wildlife conservation and community building efforts in Tanzania.
Stay tuned for our progress to 100 books and our favorites as we go!
