Thank you #kidlitexchange Network and @desibabies for the review copies of these books - all opinions are my own! I love these board books! I have practiced yoga for over 15 years and know a little bit about the Hindu Gods - so, reading about them in Meet My Hindu Gods kind of felt like I was reading about old friends. It would be a perfect fit in a tiny kid yoga class! I also loved 10 Noisy Rickshaws. Colorful counting book and an awesome opportunity to teach your kiddo about a different culture! β€οΈπŸ“šπŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘ #bookstagram #reading #librarygoddessblog #booknerd #bookreview #boardbooks #toddlerfun

So, I very nearly had a panic attack reading this book. Fast paced and terrifying. πŸ™ˆ What starts out as an afternoon at the zoo, unfolds into something awful that is not too terribly unrealistic (unfortunately). There are things about the writing I did not love, but I would totally recommend this book to those who like thrillers...please let me know if you've read it! Dying to talk to someone about it! πŸ“šπŸ’πŸ˜¬#bookstagram #reading #bookaday #librarygoddessblog #booknerd #thriller

I ❀️❀️❀️ magazines! Which ones are YOUR favorite? PS - if you have a kiddo who would rather do pretty much anything other than read, find some magazines that might interest them! There are TONS out there for kids...and even some great ones that aren't necessarily targeted to children, but that they would like to read! Reading is reading and you do whatever works! πŸ‘β€οΈπŸ“š#bookstagram #reading #librarygoddessblog #booknerd #magazines
