We have a lot of books (understatement?), and I feel like leaving them out all the time can be overwhelming for little kids – and can turn into a big mess! So I rotate books out every so often, especially for holidays and season changes.
We have our all-year-round favorites like “The Great Gracie Chase“, “Goodnight Moon“, etc. But for winter, this book has been a favorite among all three kids at some point. Most recently being Kaybug.
She requests I read it nearly every day for nap, and I’m happy to be a part of it, occasionally changing “Sam” to “Kayla” which always gets a smile.
It is called “You Can Do It, Sam” by Amy Hest. The story is about a bear and his mama who bake cakes and then deliver them to their friends on Plum Street. Sam – the very brave bear that he is, walks to each door “all by himself”. It’s such a sweet story, and always makes me want to run to the kitchen to do the same. If you are looking for a good book to put under the tree for your little ones, Kayla would like to recommend this one.
