Happy Friday, y’all… and welcome to another edition of We Love Weekends!  Sadly, this is also my last installment – but not to worry, the rest of my co-hosts will continue to carry on this great weekly link-up for all your family fun.  I have loved getting to know many of you through your great posts, and loved sharing all your awesome contributions.  As we gear up to move this month, and have a new baby the month after, I just needed to reduce my weekly commitments.  I look forward to continuing to support my co-hosts by returning as a contributor!  This Friday, in my final edition of We Love Weekends, I am featuring three awesome book recommendations for kids, from toddler age through the preteen years.

Book Recommendations for Kids of All Ages

This week, we are featuring three book lists or book-activities for kids across age groups.  Books are easily the most popular toy in our house – the girls would happily read and be read to all day longs, so we are always on the lookout for great reading lists, and book-related activities.

Book Recommendations for Kids of All Ages

First up, for the toddler to preschool age group, I loved this Go Dog Go storytelling basket from Munchkins and Moms.  This is one of my girls favorite Dr. Seuss books – Big M used to make me read her the board book version all the time, and now has it memorized and reads it to herself or her little sister.  Can’t wait to set this up for them to re-enact it as they read along!

Next, from Soph and Jack, I really enjoyed checking out their recurring weekly booklist: Books We Are Reading this Week.  Their list this week features two of our current favorites, Rosie Revere, Engineer and Miss Rumphius.  Stay tuned for exciting week long series featuring Miss Rumphius and a giveaway coming up on our blog in August!

And last but not least, Brain Power Boy has put together a fantastic list of a dozen book series for preteen boys.  While some are classic favorites, like Harry Potter and A Wrinkle in Time series, many I was unfamiliar with and can’t wait to check out!
