October Children’s Reading List (with giveaway!)

Disclaimer: These book titles were received for review purposes only. This blog was not monetarily compensated for this post.

Our routine is more settled around here now after the move, so I’m happy to present our latest list of favorites. At the bottom of the list, you’ll find a giveaway so be sure to check it out!

I loved having the chance to introduce Mama Yoga to my kids, because I am looking for activities to keep us occupied this winter. Yoga is a great way for us to keep active, relax, and bond. Mama Yoga is geared toward kids about ages 5-9. It is available for purchase at mamayogaskids.com

In the spirit of autumn, I wanted to include a pumpkin book of course! My four kids have loved reading The Biggest Pumpkin by Sandra Horning over and over again. In this story, Gavin is determined to grow the biggest pumpkin at the state fair. This story teaches about gardening in a fun way. I can’t wait to tie this story into our pumpkin patch trip this year. 
My 5 year old has been resisting bath time lately, so I thought this would be a great book for her. Time for a Bath by Phillis Gershator features Bunny, who rolls in grass, splashes in puddles, and gets dirty from eating a banana split. If Cheyenne starts having a fit when it’s bath night, we pull out this book! Check out the giveaway form below on how you can win your own copy of this book.

These Poster-A-Page books have become one of our favorites. These super size posters are great for decorating a children’s room or play room with their favorite characters. There are many varieties to choose from, so keep them on your gift idea list since the holiday season is coming up quickly! 

Enter to win a copy of Time for a Bath!

    Those all sound like great books. We have a few Halloween books, but I think it's time to get some new ones in our mix 🙂

    What a great selection. I love the idea of introducing kids to yoga early. If I had learned early, maybe I'd be better at it now!

    Good luck to everyone who's entered the competition! xx

    I remember reading Rabbit and Skunk to my kids every October when they were little… Rabbit and Skunk was their favorite fall book. I bet they would have liked these books, and especially The Biggest Pumpkin!

    My daughters favorite thing in the world (well, besides ballet) is reading. Anytime she has a choice to pick out a treat she goes for a book, which I am super thrilled about. I am going to check out that yoga book! So important to keep out kids active!

  13. October 10, 2014 / 9:28 pm

    I should pick up that yoga book for kiddo. She has been asking me if we can do yoga on the weekends because she knows I do it during the week.

  14. October 10, 2014 / 10:59 pm

    These all look like great books! We love reading here so would love them all!

  15. October 11, 2014 / 12:57 am

    These are awesome selections! The sooner you can get little ones interested in reading, the better!

    MAma Yoga sounds so cute. I'm actually stretching at the computer right now!

  17. October 11, 2014 / 11:35 am

    I loved buying books for my kids. To me, books are the best gifts you can give a child.

  18. October 11, 2014 / 3:26 pm

    Those are some great books on the list. We just love reading here at this house too.

  19. October 11, 2014 / 4:05 pm

    What some great books – I would have loved to have read some as a child I am sure 🙂 x

    Very nice book list. I'd like to get that Biggest pumpkin book for my kids too 🙂

    These all look like great reads! Although I've never heard of Mama Yoga before, but since I practice & my kids always join in, I know they'd love it.

  22. October 11, 2014 / 7:24 pm

    I absolutely love the Mama Yoga book. I didn't know they had anything out like that. I wish I had been exposed to that type of information as a child. Awesome!

  23. October 11, 2014 / 7:46 pm

    These are all great books. I miss reading to my kids now that they are teenagers.

  24. October 12, 2014 / 11:46 am
