Kids books for St. Patricks Day

Yep, it is that time again. Time to add another book to the kids library. They loved the books we got them for Valentines and I know they will be excited for these ones as well.

One of the great things about buying books online from Amazon is that a lot of them allow you a "look inside" and for picture books that is a great bonus. The girls are ok with any story as long as daddy will read it to them but mom and dad love to look at the illustrations.

These will be our first St. Patrick books and I'm so excited to share with the girls. A lot of the book on this list have great illustrations, are very reasonable in price and you can even choose

16 Cute Board Books for Your Little Valentine

Trying to always come up with the 'perfect' gift can get a bit daunting. One thing I know my little ladies will always love....a new book.

Having Paul home in the evening to read to them has really been a treat since he graduated last fall. Miss E. is still a bit young but Lady A. really does love having her dad read to her. She sits in his knees and they act them out, use funny voices and have some bonding time. Not to mention all the good that come to those developing brains as they are read to and use their imaginations.

There are a few favorite Valentine books on our shelves already and so this year we will be adding to it, one for both of them. Now to decide which ones.....hum????

Just looking at the fun covers of these books gets me excited for ours to come and discover the stories within. 

Here are links to these and with Amazon Prime {whether you are a member or have a qualifying minimum order} shipping is free and you have time to get them before Valentines Day, if you act fast.
