I’m really excited to share with you which books we have selected to read with our kids in January and February for this year. I’ve put together this book list with the Virtual Book Club for Kids Organizers Kristina from Toddler Approved, Cerys from Rainy Day Mum and myself. The book themes follow along with the typical Winter Themes that preschoolers love like Winter, Penguins, Dr. Seuss and more. Plus a few themes we know our preschoolers needs to learn more about like Kindness and Love.
