January Book Nook


For my January Book Nook picks I’m going to defer toTHIS post here: New Year, New Books: 2018 because they are still some of my favorites that I’ll be putting out again for my kiddos. I love focusing on themes each month and since there isn’t a big commercial holiday in January I like to focus my pictures books on the theme of kindness, growth, inclusion, and self-love…with a few fun winter books sprinkled in the mix!

So, in addition to last year’s picks, Here are a few new finds/ideas for this year!
