RESOURCES FOR DISCOVERING THE WORLD WITH YOUR CHILDREN

There is only one week left to put together your discovery boxes for The Little Book Adventure: Project #8- Explore the World Through Picture Books.

If you’re having trouble finding or deciding what to put inside your discovery boxes, you’ll find a wonderful list of ideas and inspirations below.

I can’t take the credit for finding all of these resources. Most of the online hunting was done by one of our wonderful Facebook followers, Jodie McAlister. Natalie Cooper also found the wonderful book list at Delightful Children’s Books.
