Mailbox Monday (37) Kid's Edition!

I'm back and linking up with Mailbox Monday again!  Work and life have been insane lately so it's been a few weeks since I have posted.  The past week has been filled with work related stress and a sick baby so Christmas wasn't anywhere near as fun as I had hoped.  

I didn't get any books for Christmas but I did get some gift cards that I will be using to buy books so I will post those in the next few weeks.  I decided to make my Mailbox Monday a kid's edition because Julia got a ton of books for Christmas and I thought it would be fun to showcase them!

Frankenstein: A BabyLit Anatomy Primer - If you haven't seen these BabyLit books, you should check them out.  They take Classics and turn them into fun education board books for little ones.

The Bearnstein Bear's Bear Family Treasury-I couldn't find a link to this one but it is a compilation of 8 Berenstain Bear's books.  I loved these books when I was a kid so I'm excited to read these to Julia.

Going West (My First Little House)- I had never heard of the 'My First Little House' books until a friend of mine gave me one for Julia.  They take some of the stories from the Little House books and turn them into short, illustrated children's books.  They're really neat!

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day - This is one of my childhood favorites.  My mom read it to my brother and I when we were kids and I have great memories of listening to her read it.

Julia's House for Lost Creatures- I have never heard of this book before but my brother and his family gave it to Julia and just from flipping through it, it looks like a fun read.  Plus, the main character is named Julia!

A Wolf's Tale - This is another one I haven't heard of before but it's another version of the Three Little Pigs and looks really cute.
Little Blue Truck Leads the Way and Little Blue Truck's Christmas - We have the first Little Blue Truck book and love it so I can't wait to read these two!

My online book/mom group had a Christmas book exchange and Julia got the books above.  The Christmas in the Big Woods book is another of the 'My First Little House' books.  She also got Moo, Baa, La La La! by Sandra Boynton; her books are awesome and I recommend them to anyone with a little one at home.  The final book she got was Anna Karenina: A BabyLit Fashion Primer.  This book is absolutely gorgeous.  The drawings are exquisite and I love it even if Julia doesn't get it.

So there you have it!  Julia hit the mother load for Christmas in both books and toys.  Hope you all had a happy holiday!  Leave a link in the comments so I can check out your book haul!

  1. Sounds like Julia really got lucky with a heavy mailbox. Good for her.

  2. I haven't heard of the my First Little House books either, I just may need to check them out myself. And we definitely have a ton of the BabyLit books, a lot of which came from the holidays. We don't have Anna Karenina yet and just may need to add that one to our collection!

  3. Those kids book have great covers. I like the colors. Hope the Kids enjoy them.

  4. I love Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day! I read it to my kids, and then my grandkids when they were small. And we even photocopied some of the funnier pages to put on our work bulletin board.

    Have you seen the movie?

    Thanks for sharing and for visiting my blog.

  5. Hope baby is better - I don't have children but I do love children's books! Enjoy spending those gift cards.

  6. Oh how cute! Hope she enjoys!

  7. I hope the baby is feeling better - always tough when they get sick. I remember Alexander from when my kids were young :) Happy New Year!

  8. I have a feeling Julia will love her new books!

  9. ENJOY all your new kid books. :)

    Sorry to hear your baby was sick. Hope all is good now.
