Toddler Books We’ve Been Reading: April 2018

Even before Erin was born books have been a big deal in our family. We try to make sure she gets to read (look at) a wide range of books and always has plenty available to her. Each month I’ll be writing about what books we’ve been reading with Erin and sometimes also posting a video!

Along with a copy of the book we received
