book review: don’t ever look behind door 32

“Don’t Ever Look Behind Door 32” is one of those stories that grabs you from the first page. A story about a “magical Hotel … with some unusual occupants” where the guests “are invited to experience everything that it has to offer … [just] don’t ever look behind door 32.”

As the doors are listed from 1-32, each one of those rooms has a fantastically eerie function. Not only does this encourage counting with your child, but it gives them something to look forward to as well.

This book is humorous and strange and sweet. The rich colours alone are incredibly vivid and entertaining. The rhymes flow so naturally and the illustrations are worthy of Sony Pictures.

What child or adult doesn’t love a story about a mysterious hotel? I know that I certainly do. I will be holding onto this book for many years.

While it may be intended for children aged 3-8, it certainly didn’t stop us from enjoying it!

This book was graciously sent to me to review on my blog. All words and opinions are mine.

#babylove: my toddler life review

#BabyLove: My Toddler Life is a book that has a wonderful message for both child and parent. Simply stated, “put down our phones.”

Written and illustrated by Corine Dehghanpisheh, it brings forth a situation that most likely rings true to all mothers and fathers. I know that I’m guilty of taking pictures and videos of Remy all day, not only for my own keepsake but to send to my husband who rarely sees her anymore. If I’m not paying attention, she will grab my iPhone and start playing with it. I usually just take it away from her. What I should be doing is not documenting every second of her life to begin with.

This picture book is colourful and fun with adorable illustrations, large lettering, and cute rhymes. Remy immensely enjoyed having it read to her. It even came with stickers!

#BabyLove: My Toddler Life is a great reminder to all parents and caregivers. Pick one up for yourself, and for anyone else that you know who could use a gentle and beautiful suggestion to do away with smartphones around children.
