With that being said, I do like to mix it up a little. So today, I wanted to share with you some of my favorite ways to Rock The Mommy Bun!

Top 3 Books Your Kids Will Love – Kids Ages 3-7 – #FridayFavorites

I just love a good book, especially a good book for my kiddos! So, I thought I would share my top 3 books that your kids will love.

My kiddos just love these books, and I think you will too!

These books are funny and interactive…which means ZERO boring! 😉

It can be tough as a mommy to get those kiddos actively wanting to read. And, let’s face it, if we wait until the end of the day to read…we are just plain tired!

It is so important to keep those little ears and eyes engaged from beginning to end. So, that is why I wanted to pick some great books that not only will the kids love reading, but YOU will too!

My first book on my favorites list is Let’s Play by Herve Tullet.

Top 3 Books Your Kids Will Love Ages 3-7

I love, love, love this book! Herve Tullet uses an interactive concept in his works Let’s Play, and the NY Times bestsellers Mix It Up, and Press Here. He proves that there doesn’t always have to be an ‘app for that’. These books will keep children entertained, and excited about reading!

Top 3 Books Your Kids Will Love Ages 3-7This is just a glimpse of the wonder that Let’s Play provides! You will love seeing the kids light up while reading, and play go hand in hand. These 3 books together would make a lovely Christmas, Holiday, or birthday gift for a special child.

My next book on my favorites list is The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak. If you happened to watch a little show called The Office, then you may remember the character Ryan, as in Ryan and Kelly. Ryan was played by B.J. Novak, and Kelly was played by Mindy Kaling…whom I adore!

The thing I love most about this book is that Novak proves that you don’t need pictures to excite our kiddo’s minds.

He shows them that words can be just as exciting! And, this book is super funny. Your kids will get a kick out of watching, and hearing you say some pretty crazy things.

We absolutely love this book in our house!

The next book is Ninja Red Riding Hood by Corey Rosen Schwartz. This is the companion book to The Three Ninja Pigs.

In this book the Big Bad Wolf is tired of getting ‘beaten’. Ever since the Three Little Pigs have opened their dojo, it seems everyone in town has the ninja moves.

Surely Little Red Riding Hood, and her little old grandmother will make the perfect prey…or will they?

This book is a fun, and exciting spin on a classic tale. It takes a light hearted look at choosing peace, which is a fantastic life lesson for the little ones! It also hones in on some girl power…which I adore!

You should definitely add all of these books on your To-Do list. Your kids will absolutely love these books, AND you will too! 🙂

Pardon me, while I go make some crazy noises while I read The Book with No Pictures for the 1000th time. P.S. It doesn’t even get boring for ME to read! 😉
