Are you looking for this year’s Valentine’s Book to share with your small that will live on as a sweet, timeless classic?  This deLIGHTful board book, I Love You, Little One from DK Canada, will charm you and your babe.

Featuring a cover with a light up moon and a gorgeous colour palette of animals telling their little ones how much they love them, this sweet little book is the perfect gift to parents & smalls.  Cuddle up for a bedtime of moon gazing with animals around the world, on land and sea.

We love the animal choices, silhouette artwork and expressions of love on each page.  A book easily read to your baby, your toddler, your small child…just an excellent addition to the library.  Wonderful shower gift too!  Recommended newborn+up, for adoring parents & their smalls near and far.

Today’s #picturebook is Bedtime For Mommy by Amy Krouse Rosenthal, illustrated by LeUyen Pham.  These two talents have many wonderful books under their belts all worth checking out–this is actually an older title of theirs I discovered and really love!  Published via @raincoastbooks!

Bedtime for Mommy features roles reversed as a little girl prepares her mother for bed including bath and bedtime story!  We loved the hilarious switcheroo here with Mommy asking for five more minutes and multiple books and leaping onto the bed in her jammies!  My own small found this concept delightful!  A sweet read with lovely laughs and a cute twist ending where the little girl goes to collect “daddy” for bed next.

A wonderful bedtime read for smalls 3+up.  We would LOVE to see updated versions featuring diverse types of families, hint hint! :)

Today’s #picturebook is Summer Color by Diana Murray, illustrated by Zoe Persico and published via Hachette (via their imprint Little Brown Books for Young Readers).

This beautiful picture book is brimming with lively, painted images capturing the many colours and textures of summer.  Gentle, rhythmic text follows two children on an adventure through the weather.  Nature comes to life along with the rumbling power of a summer storm.  A wondrous rainbow finishes this sweet tale.

We loved naming colours and spotting animals in this gorgeous, lap-sized picture book.  A sweet read to cuddle up with at bedtime on summer nights.  Recommended 2 & up.

Book three in our “Week of Elly MacKay” is Shadow Chasers via @runningpress & Hachette Books Canada.  This picture book is packed with dense forests, sunset colourscapes and the lush purples of shadows.  It follows three children trying to capture shadows as night falls but shadows cannot be caught.  They are however, always waiting for us again in the morning, ready to play and chase once more.

Light and shadow have never played more colourfully than in this wonderful lap book.  A perfect bedtime read for smalls 3+up!
