April Books to Add to Your Kids Shelves

A new month brings new books! You all know how much I love to add to our bookshelves and rotate out the books that maybe don’t serve us anymore. I’ve found that since the pandemic began, both reading and the types of books we bring into our household have changed and formed a new meaning for us. There are three categories I look into when it comes to adding to our bookshelves. Let’s discuss them all!


Life lessons and morals to stories are something that I find to be important when it comes to choosing new books. Some topics can be difficult to talk about or approach and may be easier to learn about from books. At the same time, books just have a way with words, no pun intended! Everything is explained in detail and often time by expert or psychologists.


Moreover, while the morals and lessons can be important, books are an escape from reality. And we want them to be fun for our children to spend time doing as an activity. Whether it’s topics they find interesting, a book version of a movie or show or mindless reading, it’s great to have something to look forward to or wind down with from the day.


Finally, I love the books that get my kids to use their imaginations. As they get older, I worry that they lose more of that and go into just practicality. Which is great, but also, it’s important to keep some sense of imagination and creativity alive. Specifically, it’s something that can help us get through tough times, like the past few years.

Thus, let me know about any new books your kids are loving, I’d love to add them to the next roundup and introduce them to my kids!
