Oh, and books. Pick a couple of books your kids enjoy and would love to add to your collection. Stumped on what books your kids would like? Take a trip to your local library and take a look around! We've found many new authors and series through first borrowing a few of their books from the library to take them on a "test-run".
Right now my youngest is in love with Jim Benton's new toddler books. They have their own unique sense of humor that is catchy enough that I catch my toddler reading aloud all by himself. For older kids, he is the author of the Dear Dumb Diary series and the creator of Happy Bunny.
Since S-bug was turning three, I chose 3 books to wrap. I made the polka dot numbers from a quick template and scrapbook paper that I had on hand. I found matching ribbon to create the look I was going for.
We will have to wait for the weekend for his reaction, but I think he will love these presents and what is inside them!
Update - March 2nd
We decided to let S-Bug open these at bedtime, the night before his birthday. He was ecstatic and wanted up to read the stories over and over again!
Why don't you pin this and spread the word of Read Across America Day!
How will you be celebrating Read Across America Day and/or Dr. Seuss's Birthday?
