This month we were invited to become Parragon Book Buddies, where we will be receiving one or two new books each month to review and share our thoughts. Reading is one of our favorite activities in the Rodriguez house, so I’ll never say “no” to books!
Our July selections were Discovery Kids 5000 Amazing Facts (by request) and Cute as a Button Memories & Moments Baby Record Book (a surprise!)
Lilu immediately immersed herself in the Discovery Kids 5000 Amazing Facts — like the title says, it has 5000 facts that span wide range of topics. From history, to animals, to boogers! (What kid doesn’t want some gross-out facts to impress their parents and friends?)
Here are a few of Lilu’s favorite highlights:
#4806 – Cotton Candy used to be called “Fairy Floss”
#1251 – You don’t sneeze in your sleep (One of 8 “Slimy Snot Facts)
We never did a baby book for Annabelle, so it was a pleasant surprise to receive Cute as a Button Memories & Moments which provides prompts and space to fill in all the details from the moment we knew we were expecting through baby’s first years. Lilu was on me right away to get started and it was a lot of fun going back and sharing our memories from that exciting time when we met Annabelle.
I was very impressed with the quality of both books — they are definitely made to last so we can enjoy them for years to come. We’re all looking forward to seeing what will arrive in the mail in August (maybe a cookbook for Daddy?)
Both books are available for purchase on Amazon:
These selections will definitely keep us busy for a while! What books are you reading this month?
