My two favorite books from March

I don't have a lot of time to read these days but I do make room during Hudson's morning nap, to read at least a chapter. I don't trust myself to read before bed because I am a "one more chapter" kind of girl and before I know it the book is done and it's 4 am!
Last Month I read two great books, the first is a MUST READ for anyone with a baby (or two) ;). Seriously Healthy Child, Healthy World is an amazing book. It made me strive harder to create a green home for our little Hudson! This is a great read even if you don't have a baby around!
Next was Reading with Babies, Toddlers and Twos "A guide to laughing, learning and growing together through books". This has been my go to guide for reading with Hudson. It talks a lot about the importance of reading to children but it goes even further and lists the best books for each age group. Hudson has loved every suggestion and it has really inspired me to slow down and read with him more often. We went from 1 or 2 books a day, to  10 - 12 books a day!!!
I hope you'll give one of these books a try, honestly they have been two of my favorites!!

In other news: WE BOUGHT A HOUSE!!! ;) More info on that in another post but I just wanted to let you know! ;)

  2. I will definitely have to check out Health chid, healthy world. I read Growing up green by Deirdre Imus and Raising Baby Green By Alan Greene M.D. I really liked them both!

  3. I can't tell you how happy it makes me to hear that you are reading to Hudson. I believe that children whose parents talk to them and read to them are better able to cope with social situations and when they start school. Good for you!

  7. Cannot wait to hear about the house!! I know it will be amazing. Reading to and with your child is one of hte best things you can do!! Our girls talked early, and started reading early as well. I know a lot of it had to do with their exposure to books very early on.

  11. Have a look at debralynndadd.com if you are interested in less toxic products for your home. She has been researching the subject since 1982- which is making me feel seriously old as I remember having a few of her books in the 80's. There is also a Q&A forum which is nice if you want feedback on particular items.
