Here we are back with another book review because I love to read! However, this time I am reviewing a children’s book because my toddler loves to read as much as I do. Thank goodness! We receive #BabyLove: My Toddler Life by Corne Dehghanpsheh in the mail almost a week ago, and we have read it every day since.
DISCOSURE: I received this book for free in return for my HONEST review. All opinions are my own as always, and if you want to read more about my disclosure policy click HERE
My first impression of #BabyLove was how cute the illustrations were, which are actually drawn by Corne Dehghanpsheh herself. How cool is that! The book is also the perfect length, where my two-year-old doesn’t lose interest in it, so that’s another plus. The book feels very good in my hands and I don’t think my toddler is going to tear the pages out like he does on some flimsy books. This book might actually stay safe in our house.
When you flip through the pages you will notice that every page is bright, and every page is a different color than the last. A lot of books aren’t like this and it really makes a difference. My son is so interested in every page because of the drastic color change. Not only can I teach him to read with this book, but I can also help him identify colors really easy. This is a great learning tool!
I can’t get over how much I relate to #babylove. It’s about a toddler and his mom, and the toddler runs away with his mom’s phone. Yes, I have a toddler that runs away with my phone and he behaves the same way that this little boy in the story does but, It’s crazy how similar. Do all toddler’s act like this little boy in the story or was this book just written about my life? You can purchase your copy HERE if you think you might be able to relate.
I think there is a much deeper message in this book. To start out we see what the mother sees when she is trying to get a good picture, through her phone. Then we see at the end where she puts the phone away and just enjoys her little boy.
I am a blogger, which means I am also my own photographer. This hits me hard because I am always trying to get the perfect shot. I am always watching my toddler through my phone’s camera because I don’t want to miss my picture opportunity. It’s really an eye opener that sometimes just spending time with your child is going to be so much better than making sure you get the picture.
I would highly recommend #BabyLove My Toddler Life to anyone with a toddler. The story line is great, the pictures are so creative and it might even make you a little emotional. So, don’t forget to grab your copy HERE and be sure to let me know if you are enjoying these book reviews, because I am enjoying writing them!
If you are struggling to get your child to be interested in reading, I have a whole blog post dedicated to helping you HERE.
