August Children’s Reading List (with a giveaway!!)

Disclaimer: I received these books for free for review purposes only.

Our family has had the chance to read a lot of great books this last month. Here are the titles that made the top of our list.

The Pout-Pout Fish Goes to School
The Pout-Pout Fish is a cute little character who helps children ease into going back to school. Written by Deborah Diesen, children can follow Mr. Fish through anxieties most children face when starting school. Writing their name, learning their shapes, and learning how to count…however will they learn it all?! 
At the bottom of this post, you’ll find a Giveaway Tools form for a chance to win a copy of The Pout-Pout Fish Goes to School
Sunne’s Gift

Sunne’s Gift follows a young girl who becomes a victim of bullying because of her difference in appearance. Although this book features an ethnic theme, children from all walks of life can relate to this book as bullying is unfortunately so common these days. Children can learn about loving themselves in this wonderful story. Learn more about Sunne’s Gift.

Baby’s First Block Books

If you have an infant, these books are really cool! These books are shaped like blocks and feature contrasting colors that are great for an baby’s developing eyesight. It also helps them learn to focus. I wish I would’ve had these when all of my kids were super tiny! I think Baby’s First Blocks would make a great shower gift.

    My daughters and I are very passionate about anti-bullying. We really want to put an end to it. At 9 and 10, they wrote a book about how kids can be bully-proof and I'm so proud of them. I like the book you shared and will be adding to our library.
