Spread Smiles with These Children’s Books on Kindness!

Random Acts of Kindness Day is observed on February 17th every year. I love the idea of recognizing the power of small acts of kindness and encouraging kids to make a difference. My mother is the kindest person I have ever met. She encourages every person in her life to spread kindness to others. Whether she is baking birthday treats for every single person at her work, or just smiling at every person she passes, her goal is to brighten people’s days. I absolutely want my daughter to look at life that way as well. I love that this holiday encourages everyone to do the same. To spread some smiles this year, I decided to gather a list of great children’s books on kindness to help families start their own traditions.

Celebrate the Olympic Spirit with Books on Winter Sports!

I love the Olympics. The world comes together to watch people fulfill their lifelong goals and cheer them on. The pride in representing your country, the beautiful routines and tricks being performed and the incredible range of emotions on display all make it a wonderful thing to share with your kids. With the 2018 Winter Olympics coming up, I figured this would be the perfect time to gather a list of books on winter sports that we will see in the coming weeks. Introduce your kids to all of the winter fun and maybe inspire them to chase their dreams as well!

15 of the Best Yoga Books for Kids

From a very early age, my daughter has loved to do yoga. Even before she knew what she was doing, she loved copying my yoga moves. As she has grown, I have been really excited to find some great resources to help me teach her some yoga basics. At only 2, she has her favorite poses already and she loves doing them on a regular basis. I love that it is something that we can do together, and that she is learning how to control her body, her mind and her emotions. Since one of my goals for the year is to do more yoga together, I decided to gather a list of 15 of the best yoga books for kids!

Personalized Christmas Books to Make the Holidays Special!

When it comes to shopping for Christmas gifts, I am always looking for special gifts that really mean something.
