If you spend any amount of time on Instagram, here’s what you need to do. First, search the hashtag, “bookstagram,” and second, lose your life looking at all the beautiful photos of books you need to immediately go out and read! There’s a whole world of readers using the social media platform to support authors and books, and the photos they use are stunningly beautiful.

If you’re a lover of children’s books (because we never grew out of that phase), or if you’re looking to stay current with what the kids are reading these days, these “bookstagram” account are must-follows for you!

This is one of my favorite series and I know I’m not alone… these books have been so popular over the decades that they made it an animated show on Prime! As if we needed another reason to love Prime. Can you believe the original, ‘If You Give A Mouse A Cookie,’ was passed on by 9 publishers before being taken on? . ‘If You Give A Cat A Cupcake’ is a fun choice for a summer book as it takes us to the beach, among other places. Because cupcakes come with sprinkles and sprinkles remind us of… sand. One thing leads to another which always leads us right back to where we started in these humorous stories. . My son picked this one out at the bookstore recently and, when I picked him up from school last week, he was “reading” ‘If You Give A Moose A Muffin’ with one of his friends. Clearly he’s a fan. My personal favorite of the series that I’ve read thus far is ‘If You Give A Pig A Pancake.’ . Which is yours?

What did I tell you? She loves #bookfacefriday so much that she gets any book these days and when I say I’m going to take a photo, she holds the book right up next to her nose. . Hudson and the Puppy: Lost in Paris is my Little’s current favourite. She watched The Secret Life of Pets for the first time recently and since has loved everything to do with puppies. While giving readers a tour of the wonders of Paris, Hudson encounters a lost puppy. We see more of the fascinating city as Hudson helps the puppy find its home, even taking a scooter for a ride and a boat. Readers get a delightful introduction to many iconic monuments, sights, and the French language. With its sweet ending, adorable characters and beautiful painterly illustrations, I can see why Little has taken a shine to Hudson and his new puppy friend. Nous aimons hudson! #hudsonandthepuppy #kidsbooks #learningfrench #parischien #picturebook

“Of all the children that ever could be, you are the one made just for me.” . MADE FOR ME celebrates a fathers love for his child. From the “day you were born” to first steps and a first trip to the beach. From banging pots and pans to swinging a bat in the yard. A father celebrates all the little moments that add up to measure his love. And at the end, when he’s tucking his little one into bed, the text will tug at your heartstrings… “Tucked in tight, it’s my heart where you’ll stay. Tomorrow I’ll love you even more than today.” . We painted little hands and added handprints on the front endpapers of the copy we’re gifting for Fathers Day. Because goodness knows, those little hands grow so fast. . #FathersDay #fathersdaygiftideas #booksfordad #daddysgirl #fatherandson #readtome #picturebooks #kidsbooks #booksasgifts #readingismagic #MadeForMe

What’s in a name? I’ve always loved that question. Sure, some parents pick names for one reason and one reason only: because they like the way they sound. But many of us pick our children's names for a reason: as a tribute to someone’s memory, to honor someone currently living, or because the name has a special definition we hope our sons and daughters will emulate. We picked our boys’ names for all of the above reasons, and their names- both their given names and their Hebrew names- are so special to our family. Because I love the derivation of names, I particularly loved Alma and How She Got Her Name, by Juana Martinez-Neal. This book is simply perfect – and absolutely stunning to boot!!
