If I didn’t have a parks and outdoor play blog, I’d write a book blog. I absolutely love books! I wrote about a few other choices in Mice Can Be Heroes. The following are sure to give you some outdoor inspiration.
Have you ever read a Mo Willem book to your child? Mo Willem wrote Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Tale. He sneaks in lots of hilarity for the grown-ups. So give this one a try: Are You Ready to Play Outside? (An Elephant and Piggie Book).
I couldn’t resist buying The Curious Garden by Peter Brown at last year’s Scholastic Book Fair. I value books where I can look at the same illustrations over and over, but find something different or get a different feeling every time. The Curious Garden doesn’t disappoint.
So whether you order them from Amazon or check them out at the library . . . Enjoy!
And have a Happy New Year!

I would gladly bring these books and read it to my kids when we go camping to remove boredom at the same time bond with them. Gotta find them! :)

My 4 and 6 year old boys can laugh over and over and OVER again at Mo Willem's books with Piggie and Gerald...and BOTH can read them,or pretend to read them because they are easy and fun. A MUST on any home-bookshelf list!
