Books to snuggle up with this Valentine’s Day from Scholastic

I love books and have passed that love down to my children.  There is nothing better than snuggling up with a good book and settling in for long read.

Scholastic has come out with some great new books, perfect for snuggling up with your kids before bed, or any time of day.

Goodnight, I Love You by Caroline Jayne Church is the perfect get-your-child-ready-for-bed book.  The book goes through the bedtime routine with adorable illustrations and a sing-song rhyming story.

My kids, being 3 1/2 & 5 1/2 have fallen in love with this book and ask to cuddle up and read it multiple times a day.  Bedtime routines can sometimes be frustrating and drawn out, but the book goes through the routine with fun rhyming lines right until the kids are tucked in and mom and dad say Goodnight, I love you.

Zoe’s Year is a combination of Barbara Reid’s beloved Zoe board books.  This book follows Zoe as she explores her neighborhood and all the different things to do during the 4 seasons.

I love the idea that Barbara Reid has combined the 4 great Zoe books into one.  My daughter was thrilled to see a book where the pictures were all made out of plasticine!  In her words “Look Mom! All the pictures are done with clay!!”

It’s MY Room is the newest book by beloved author Robert Munsch.  When Matthew’s family moves and he finally gets his own room he is very excited.  But the excitement doesn’t last long with relative after relative comes to visit.

True to Robert Munsch fashion this book gets a little silly when Matthew tries to get his room back from the invading relatives!  My kids giggled and enjoyed the crazy story right till the end.  They have asked me to read this book over and over again.

The Runaway Hug by Nick Bland tells the story of a what happens when Lucy’s mom gives her the last hug she has.  Lucy, promising to return the hug, goes on a search to share the hug with the rest of her family including her dog!

This was my favorite book.  I love how the author portrays the love the family has for each other (even Lucy’s older brothers) and how you were kept guessing as to how the hug was going to change along the way.

There you have it.  Four great new books from Scholastic.  Go out and pick one or all of them up to read with your family.
