Books—they serve a deep importance to our lives and the development of our children. If instilled early, kids can learn to adore story time, and often attach themselves to certain books and exciting tales. Reality is, many of the options are strictly geared at putting simplistic, easy to understand material and pictures on paper. That’s great! But doesn’t it sound nice to incorporate some options that you might end up loving, too? From the simple, to slightly more complex, these kids books are adventures you wouldn’t mind reading over and over.
One Day in the Lives of Seven Kids from Around the World is a culturally educational book that offers a glimpse into Peru, Italy, Russia, Uganda, Iran, India, and Japan. What’s school like? What do they eat? What’s their favorite thing to do when playing outside? Understanding the environment each country’s children live in from day to day is an immersive way to discover small pieces of lives very different from our own.
The Day the Crayons Quit is a totally refreshing take on children’s books, that presents readers with the task of problem solving and conflict resolution. Complex stuff for kids, and intriguing for adults! Crayons have literally gone on strike and left behind nothing but resignations in the box. Each has their own complaint about their tedious jobs, from blue’s exhaustion from coloring all of those oceans, to others miffed because of torn paper coverings, which has left them in the buff. It’s creative and funny.
