My daugther’s first birthday is quickly approaching. I am getting ready for her party and have been thinking about the perfect gift to get her. Because she has an older sister, I don’t think toys are needed. So I am giving her the BEST gift of all: books!
I love books. So much that I when I used to get my book orders in grade school, I would hurry up, open the book and take a big whiff! Mmm, the smell of a new book is so great! I love the messages that lie inside of books. I love the illustrations that paint pictures in your head. I have to hold back on spending money on books for my girls. Being a teacher, I already have my own personal children’s library at home. But with it being a first birthday, I chose a few books with super special messages in them.
1. Little Michigan by Denise Brennan-Nelson
2. Only One You by Linda Kranz
3. Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? by Dr. Seuss
5. An Awesome Book of Thanks by Clayton Dallas
Invitations for the birthday go out tomorrow. I love planning a party but I could cry thinking about how it feels like only yesterday that my little girl entered this world!
