I love to read to Aiden, and love going to bookstores to find some new gems for our collection. I don’t feel guilty about buying books, I see them as more of an investment. If I’m going to spend over an hour a day reading to Aiden, I may as well choose books I like too!
Lately I’ve tried to go outside of Chapters to see what other books I can find. I’m getting tired of the flashcard-y “first words” / “first colours” etc books – there’s no story to them! Aiden’s taken a fancy to books that have more of a rhyme to them, so we’re exploring longer nursery rhymes and some stories too.
We shop for kids books at:
- Costco (though they tend to be more gimmicky books than story books)
- Chapters / Indigo (store)
- Amazon.com (though too much choice is overwhelming!)
- Library book sales (where we found two of our current fave stories, Chugga Chugga Choo Choo and We Were Tired of Living in a House)
I’d love to know where you search for books – do chime in!!
