WWRM: Birthday Books and a Giveaway!

wwrm-449670-edited.pngIt's WWRM! This week, I'm going to tell you about the babies' birthday books (you know...from July...#twinlife can put you behind schedule!). I also have a special birthday book giveaway to belatedly celebrate their 1st birthday!

Birthday_Book_Giveaway-419411-edited.jpgAs a librarian and a book lover, I wanted to start a meaningful tradition with books for the babies' birthdays. I decided to pick out a book for each of them and write a birthday message and a note about why I picked it inside. Stuff like this is not Ben's thing but after some {okay, a lot} of nagging, he also wrote them a birthday note. I have a few of my own inscribed books from when I was a kid and I love to see the messages inside!

We have been reading a ton of books by Oliver Jeffers lately. I love that his stories are sweet and funny and his illustrations are simple but beautiful! I went with these books by him for their birthday books: 

bdaybooks1.jpgI picked How to Catch a Star for Baby B because he reminds me of the little boy in the story. In the book, a boy wants a star of his very own and tries all kinds of things to reach one. Just when he is about to give up on his sweet little-boy-dream, he finds that what he is looking for might just be where he least expects it. I can see my little man doing something similar when he's bigger!

Miss Baby A got The Incredible Book Eating Boy due to her pretty serious book eating habit. She eats every book we own! You can even see where she nibbled on the bottom right corner in the picture above. It's actually a really big problem in our house but I try to see the humor in it and I know she can't eat books forever! In this book, a little boy literally devours books until he finds out there are other ways to enjoy them. Some day soon I hope Baby A learns the same! Until then, "read it, don't eat it!" will continue to be something I repeat all day every day.
