The other day we were walking through a big ol’ box store to grab some supplies for our life on the road (I mean, have you seen the crazy adventure we’re on?).
After wandering through theoverwhelming aisles of the toy section, we wondered“how much of this stuff will just end up in the landfill in a few months...or even weeks?”
Now, let us be clear. We buy toys for kids all the time. We’re not trying to rain on any parades here...
BUT, we do try to be selective about the toys we buy. And more often than not, we choose to give books instead.
Reading books out loud together is one of our favorite activities. How great is it to snuggle up with the child in your life and read?
You can re-gift a favorite book once a child outgrows. Many stories are timeless and can be passed from family to family.
Books spark the imagination in new ways. So often after we've read a story together it comes up in ways toys often don't. Questions are asked, great conversation ensues making it fun for everyone.
Sneaky learning happens. Of course we're all about PLAY (just look at our company!) but we love that kids can build their vocabulary and reading skills with books.
There are enough screens, and things with all sorts of bells, and whistles in kids' lives already. Giving a great books gives them an excuse to calm down and enjoy a quiet moment.
We love books so much we wrote two of ‘em! They’re the perfect gift for the small children on your list.
SHOP NOW and get them in time for the holidays.
Thanks, as always, for supporting small (but mighty!) companies like ours. We’re glad to be a part of your mission to raise confident kids and connect as a family.
We’re big believers that some of the best things in life are free.
But we also know that this time of year, giving gifts to the people you love feels pretty darn good, too!
