Random House: Bringing You the Best in Fiction, Nonfiction, and Children's Books

What a way to wrap up a fun week of reading new books to the girls at bedtime, and during our one-on-one time.  I am finding that Arabella is getting just as excited as Savannah is when it comes to reading time, and is even sitting still longer.  She has even added a few new words to her vocabulary including "Sofia" and "Tea", thanks to the new A Little Golden Book, "Sofia the First: The Perfect Tea Party" from Random House.


THE PERFECT TEA PARTY by RH Disney; illustrated by RH Disney
"Girls ages 2-5 will love Sofia the First--the new animated TV show about an eight-year old girl who becomes a princess when her mother marries the king. Living in a castle and attending school at Royal Prep takes some getting used to, but Sofia has lots of helpers including Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather! This Little Golden Book retells an episode of the Disney Junior show in which Sofia hosts her first royal tea party."

My girls just love watching Sofia the First on Disney Junior, and were so excited when I showed them this book the other day.  I told them that they would have to wait until bedtime for me to read it to them.  You should have saw them that afternoon...pacing around, continually asking me when bedtime was, or if we could read the book sooner.  I made them wait until bedtime, and it was well worth the wait, as this was a cute story to share.  Fans of Sofia the First will enjoy this A Little Golden Book, as the story is easy to understand and follow, and the illustrations are amazing. 
Since receiving "Sofia the First: The Perfect Tea Party," and reading it at bedtime to the girls, this has become an instant hit in our house.  The girls can't go a day without pulling  it from the bookcase and flipping through the pages themselves.  And, when it comes time to choose a book for bedtime, they continually ask for this one.
In addition to the Sofia the First book, Random House also released a fun CARS book for kids to enjoy this summer.  BONUS:  This book comes with over 30 stickers!!!!

STEP INTO READING—STEP 2: Driving School by Kristen L. Depken; illustrated by RH Disney
"Lightning McQueen and Mater take their friends to driving school in this Step 2 reader! Boys ages 4-6 will love this fun-filled story that features Lightning McQueen, Mater, and all their friends from Disney/Pixar's Cars. When hot rods race into town, it's up to Lightning McQueen and Mater to teach them the rules of the road! Plus it comes with over 30 stickers!"

So, why not join my girls and I this summer, and pick some new summer reading material to share with your little ones.  There is no better enjoyment than to be able to spend quality time snuggling up together, as you read your little ones a good book.  :-)
