children's book

The release of If I Could Climb Trees, the fifth volume in the Nuggies illustrated children’s book seriesis scheduled for March 28, 2017!

I love words. I love writing them and reading them. My Mom, a 5th grade teacher for over 30 years, loved words too. She was responsible for instilling a serious love of books in me from when I was small. Now, I strive to pass that same infatuation along to my daughters.

What I’ve learned as a parent is that there are a few really simple ways to share the love of reading.

Read to your kids.

Let them hear and see the words on the page. Talk about the story, the pictures. Enhance the storytelling with character voices and show emotion while you’re reading. They will be so excited for the page to turn!

Show them you love to read.

Be a great example and show them that adults love to read too.  Keep your bookshelves full at home, fill up the Kindle, or visit the library on a regular basis.

Let them read to you.

Encourage your kids to read out loud to you, siblings, grandparents, even family pets! They will become proud and confident readers, eager to share their books!

Give them new books!

Keep your kids engaged with new books, new stories, new authors all the time! Introduce them to new characters, fresh ideas, and possibilities with all sorts of different types of books to pique their interest!

Sometimes my girls can get attached to 1 or 2 books and will want to re-read it a dozen times! I think that’s great, but I also strive to find new titles that I know they’ll love too! Check out the Nuggies Website to find some new, tantalizing books for the kids!

If I Could Climb Trees, written by Jeff Minich, is the latest children’s book in the Nuggies illustrated children’s book series. It tells a whimsical story about a imaginative little dog named Coco. She is a curious pup that considers what her life would be like if only she could climb trees. Dreaming of the creatures that live in the trees (a squirrel, lady bug, ant, and even a caterpillar), Coco encourages children to consider what things might be like through the eyes of others.

This vivid story is colorfully complimented by the talents of illustrator, Renan Garcia and immediately sparks kid’s imaginations, letting the reader see a different point of view. It’s a perfect read to thrill kids ages 3-6 years old.

“It takes children on a fantastic journey while also encouraging them to consider the world through many different points of view. Building empathy and understanding for others is a key theme of the Nuggies book series, and one that is woven throughout this latest book.” ~ Jeff Minich, author of If I Could Climb Trees
