My family will tell you I'm not a big collector of trinkets and things, but when it comes to books I have a weakness. We just can't have too many. It is one thing I make space for in our tiny home! And green though I may try to be, just not sold on the whole Kindle thing, yet. Reading is such a tactile experience. I like the feel of the pages, they way they smell, the vivid illustrations. There's a certain joy in pulling out an old book my parents read to me as a child- sharing that very same, well-loved book with my own children.
Today I'm excited to introduce you to a great company that believes in making the process of choosing a great book(or two, or three...) easier for parents, grandparents, caregivers, everyone and anyone:
Joan McCoy and Barney Cohen are the people behind Little One Books. They started their web-based store specifically to carry quality media for children birth through age five. My own kidlets are currently 4 and under, so it's really nice not having to wade through material that isn't age appropriate for them. They've taken the guess work entirely out of it as the site is organized by age! Joan and Barney are grandparents to five grandchildren under the age of seven; which of course means they bring plenty of experience and test subjects to find the best media for their customers.
What I think speaks volumes(pun intended) is that they have personally selected and reviewed every product you'll find in their store. Going a step further- they've created a "Why we chose" section for each product. In this area their staff goes into detail as to why they chose the product, a few highlights about it and what the little people in their lives loved. Yes, their products have also been reviewed by kids!
She was so excited to read our 'special book' together!
Little Lady says, 'Thank You!' for her new favorite book(So does mom).
