What Wee Read
In honor of National Reading Month, we thought we'd share a few of our very favorite kids' books. Some are beautiful, some are clever, some are silly—and all are fun to read together.
What Wee Read:
Little Blue Truck by Alice Schertle and Jill McElmurry
For almost a year, our boys demanded reading this book every single night. We still have the catchy rhymes memorized. It's about Blue, a country pick-up truck, and his animal friends who figure out the importance of helping others. (And shout out to our Iowa roots—we spent lots of time in pick-ups.)
Iggy Peck, Architect by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts
This is one of our go-to gifts—everyone loves it. It's a beautifully illustrated, fantastic story with the best rhymes since Dr. Seuss. It's about sticking with your passion, no matter what. We love great books with good messages.
Cars and Trucks and Things That Go by Richard Scarry
Richard Scarry books were some of our favorites when we were kids, and they still hold up. With so many things to look at, you can create a new story each time you read it. The best part? Finding Goldbug (a teeny, tiny yellow bug) hidden on each spread. It keeps our kids focused (by themselves) for many, many minutes. Thanks, Mr. Scarry.
