Theme Your Book Days

Do you read books to your kids everyday? Well, you're not alone. My kids LOVE reading books, and I love reading to them! I love that they love learning! We go to our local library every week for story time. My kids EAT IT UP! I got an idea from them one day. They always have a different theme for their story time, so I asked myself, "why can't I?"

First of all, I would like to thank my 5 nieces who kept their books in such nice shape to hand them down to us. I am thankful for my mom who kept all of my favorite books growing up in a box to save for me to use now. I am thankful for those who have given us books brand new. Books are expensive, so every time someone gives us a new book, we are ecstatic! 

I grabbed our mountain of books and together my daughter and I sorted them into themes. She was so excited! I took a few pictures for you, then placed them into a clear bin so I could grab out a "theme" a day. It has been a BLAST teaching my kids through stories. 


Here are our themes for the day
(Yours are probably different due to the fact that EVERYONE has different books)

Farm
Colors
Weather
Babies
Bath Time/Bubbles
Counting Books
Food
Dr. Seuss 
Dinosaurs
Books about the Moon
Bed Time
Circus
Alphabet Books
Zoo/Animals
Fish/Ocean
World/Different Cultures


I hope this inspires you to have fun themed reading days with your kids!

  1. Cute idea Brooklyn! We have most of our books sorted by series - Dr. Seuss, Golden, Beatrix Potter, Alpha-pets, Disney, etc. but that's probably more due to my personal OCD. I'm going to try to start choosing our library books by theme for the school year though. Sounds like fun!
