As many of you know, my daughter is a BOOK WORM!! She LOVES to read!! Yesterday, on the way home from church she was reading a Clifford book to herself, highlighting on all the important points! Nate and I were in the front seat (silently) cracking up! She was naming off all the items in the picture that she knew as well as telling the story as she remembered it! What an incredible feeling knowing your child LOVES to read!! It is a good thing in this house since we hardly have the television turned on!
I recently came across this awesome kids online bookstore called Slimy Bookworm. It is so easy to find a book on her website! She has categorized it into ages and genres! I clicked on ages 0-3 and it pulled up all of the "best" books for Sophia's age! It gives an image of the book as well as a description of the contents! She also has an awesome quick reference site map to help navigate through the website! One of my favorite categories of her site is the "Just for Parents" section. It has great topical books to help teach your kids important concepts they need to know! For example you can find books on dealing with new babies, babysitters, saying good-bye, sleepovers, manners, listening, etc! What a great resource for parents trying to raise well-behaved children!
You might think to yourself, why should I buy my books here when I can get them from the Big Box Bookstores??
Here are 6 reasons why:
1. It is MOMMY Owned! (Don't we love to support other women that are mom's just like us!)
2. It's niche is in children's books!
3. Uncluttered selection for busy parents looking for vetted books that your children (or family members) will actually LOVE! (There are just some books you need in your collection to make it complete! Slimy Bookworm has them!)
4. The owner is very involved in promoting literacy amongst those who are less fortunate. She donates books and 10% of the profits to not-for-profit literacy efforts! Soon she will be working with readtokids.org!
5. She has a incredible interactive BLOG on books and parenting!
6. She has a 45 day return policy vs. the standard 30 at the Big Box Bookstores! (However, you probably won't need to use this feature b/c you will only be ordering amazing books that have been vetted!)
