Book Fan Friday

Storytime today was extra special because my wonderful husband was able to join us! He had a break from work and came to see what it was all about. You could really tell Baby Girl liked having her Daddy come listen to a story with her.

While looking through all the books this morning, I wanted to find one that I was not familiar with at all. Some of the books I have done for this blog so far I have either read, heard of, or were familiar with the characters (ie. Berenstain Bears). So I really wanted to discover something new with Baby Girl. I came across a book with a cute little owl on the cover. Turns out the owl doesn't want to be known as a cute, little thing.... at least he doesn't think he does. It is I'm Not Cute! by Jonathan Allen.

It is a sweet little book. I generally read to Baby Girl during the day, not as part of her bedtime routine. I want to incorporate reading into her bedtime routine, but just haven't yet. Anyway, I feel like this book is a perfect bedtime story. I can picture myself reading it to Baby Girl while she lie all snuggled up in her bed (well, when she's older... she's still in a crib right now of course).

I am still trying to think of a good name to replace "Book Fan Friday." Honestly I haven't really sat down and brainstormed too much, but I'm hoping inspiration will come! If you have any ideas, please leave a comment! And if you have any books you have read your little one that you guys have just loved, I would love some recommendations! I received a recommendation last week and look forward to seeing if the library here has it. Since it was similar to the book I checked out last week, I decided to save it for another week but it is on my list!


  1. I think 'book fan friday' is a good title. I also think this is a great idea for a post series! And the title you have keeps it clear what it is(sort of like the SEO title optimization they were talking about at SITS today). Yay! Other ideas for a title (since you asked) :) could be: Find a Book Friday or Library Friday.

    That book looks super cute... except maybe I shouldn't call it 'cute', since it obviously doens't want to be called cute. Heh. My kids are older - 4 and 7. They loved Sandra Boynton books when they were smaller.

    Happy Saturday Sharefest!

    It is interesting that in this post you talked about the title of your post. I like the title but if you are looking for something else maybe something like 'Friday Finds'. If you are finding new books it might work.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. Hopefully you have this set up to notice late comments! :-)

    I've been meaning to comment but I never have Dawson's books right next to me! As I was putting them away today I figured I should hurry and hop on the computer and leave you a comment!

    These are my 3 favorite books to read to Dawson. (He already has a library of his own! Dave had to put me on a monthly book budget because I love buying books for him! *lol*) Anyway, here they are:

    How Do I Love You? by Marion Dane Bauer
    Baby Cakes by Karma Wilson
    I'll Always Love You by Paeony Lewis

    I think the first 2 that I mentioned are Dawson's favorites. He always gets super excited as I am reading them. :-)
