Welcome in Fall with a Good Book -- From Author of "Goodnight Moon", Margaret Wise Brown, Comes 5-Minute Stories - A Must Have Bedtime Book for Families! (Review)

Disclosure: I was sent a review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All views shared are mine and mine alone.

I still can't believe that tomorrow is the first day of fall.  Can you?  It seemed like summer flew by, and then September came and with school and getting back into extracurricular stuff with the girls, that this month zipped by, too!  While I am sad for the warm weather to go, I do love fall and the fall foliage, and all that comes with the changing of the seasons.  And, one thing I love is sharing all new and recent children's book releases with you all, as part of my annual "Welcome in Fall with a Good Book" feature.  Earlier this month I wrapped up my "Welcome in Summer with a Good Book" feature, where I shared reviews of over 71 new releases with you. You can see all the books featured here:

I am excited for the new "Welcome in Fall with a Good Book feature" as I have over 100 books to share with you over the next month or so, before I start sharing my annual children's book advent feature to help you count down the days until Santa's arrival.  I know, you don't want to hear about Christmas just yet. But, if you have been to stores recently you probably have already seen the decorations and Christmas aisles popping up.  It is crazy just how quickly they rush in Back to School during the middle of summer, and then rush to get Halloween stuff up, before moving onto Christmas.  If only we could slow down and enjoy each holiday.  Well, hopefully with my children's book recommendations for fall, you will find some cute books to pick up and enjoy with your kids during the upcoming fall months, before the craziness of December and the holidays get here.

The first book I wanted to share with you is by one of my favorite childhood authors.  If you have ever read or had read to you, "Goodnight Moon," then you know who I am talking about....Margaret Wise Brown.  My mom used to read all her books to my brothers and I at bedtime, and I have since shared these books with my girls.  So, when I heard Margaret Wise Brown had released another book, "5-Minute Stories," I couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy to share with my girls, and with you all.  Just like the title suggests, this book contains short stories for children that take about 5 minutes to read.  In total you get to share 8 cute stories with you kids from bestselling author, Margaret Wise Brown.  The following at the short stories included in this padded hardcover book, available now...

  1. Count to 10 with a Mouse
  2. A Song for All Seasons
  3. Sleep Little Angel
  4. Away in My Airplane
  5. Wish Upon a Dream
  6. Sleep Tight, Sleepy Bears
  7. All the Families
  8. The Tickly Spider
Even though my girls are reading chapter books on their own, they still love snuggling up on the couch to have me read to them.  We also make a point to still enjoy a good book at bedtime, as a way to wind down the day, and get in a few extra minutes of one-on-one quality time together.  This book has been popular with my girls at bedtime, as they love how they can have me read a few quick stories to them.  Not only are the stories fun to read and listen to, but the illustrations are playful and really bring the different short stories to life.  Both of my girls loved the "Count to 10 with a Mouse" story, as well as "The Tickly Spider.  The mouse story has the most adorable mouse you have even seen, and you can't help but smile when you read the story with your kids.  We found ourselves lingering on each page to take in all the details in the cute and playful illustrations done by Kirsten Richards. 

Come on, you can't tell me this little mouse isn't adorable?! :-)

And, look at this mole. He is just so stinkin' cute! :-)

My girls like the "The Tickly Spider" story as I always end the story with a few unexpected tickles, that have the girls laughing and doing this oh so cute belly giggles.  I love this special time with each of my girls at bedtime, and thanks to the 5-Minute Stories by Margaret Wise Brown, we can get in a few stories at bedtime, and I get in a few extra snuggles, hugs and kisses from my girls, which I love!

So, why not pick up this cute children's book by bestselling author, Margaret Wise Brown today?  Then, get ready to welcome in fall with a book story or two each night at bedtime with your kids. Happy reading! :-)
