We are definitely a family of avid readers. Even as babies our children loved picture books and loved to be read to. Now that our kids can read on their own they have graduated to the young adult section. Yikes, when did my babies become young adults! Obviously, they won’t admit it to their friends, but they still love it when we read to them. Here are 3 of our favorite children’s books that we have been reading these days.

Max and Bird

The unlikely pair of Max the cat and Bird learn the meaning of true friendship in this heartwarming book. When Max meets Bird he struggles with deciding whether to be friends with Bird or eat Bird for a tasty snack. The pair do become the best of friends.

Max and Bird is part of a series of books written by Ed Vere. Other books in the series include Max the Brave and Max at Night. You can purchase Max and Bird on Amazon.

Cutie Meets Mr. Lizard

The book takes you on the adventures of Cutie, the Chihuahua. Cutie does not like to stay home alone all day so he sneaks out of the house and goes on adventures where he meets Mr. Lizard and the Lizard family. If your kids are animal lovers then this is a great book for them!

Cutie Meets Mr. Lizard is actually the 1st book in a series. The next book, Cutie Saves Miss Bunny, is scheduled to be released in September 2017.

Benji & The 24 Pound Banana Squash

This book begins with Benji planting squash seeds from the summer before in the garden. He waters them, and he waits. Nothing happens! Until one day when he sees little sprouts. To Benji’s delight, those little sprouts turn into a giant 24-pound banana squash. Benji’s mom cooks up the yummy squash for the whole family to eat.

Benji and the 24-pound banana squash can be purchased on Amazon.

These are 3 books that our family is loving right now and I know that your family will love them too. Happy Reading!!
