Current Favorite Books: Olive

Hello friends! I'm starting off a new series where I'll be talking about each of our current favorite books- Hank too! So much fun, right? For the first go-round I'll be sharing Olive's must-reads. ;) She definitely is developing preferences and favorites, and it's so neat to see what she gravitates towards. Whether you have a little reader yourself, one on the way, or just a little book-lover in your life, I hope you find some great new recs. Here we go:

1. Peek-A Who?

This is a MAJOR favorite for Olive right now. She loves to "read it" herself and always grabs this first. It's a really fun book for babies- you turn each page and reveal what's peeking out, and little ones love it.

2. The Secret Garden: A BabyLit Flowers Primer

So I'm not sure what it is about this book- we have a lot of the BabyLit books- but Olive absolutely loves this one. She hugs it like a stuffed animal, smiles at every turn of the page, and really lights up when I pull it off the shelf. It's the prettiest book too, so kids and parents can both enjoy.

3. Whose Feet?

This is the cutest book ever and I think I love it as much as Olive does! She loves holding onto the feet and turning the pages. I also enjoy that it's machine washable so there are no worries if the fabric gets messy.

4. Babies Love First Words

This lift-a-flap book is perfect for little hands and this is another one that makes Olive laugh and smile every time. Super cute illustrations and flaps to entertain baby, this is a daily favorite at our house!

5. Little Blue Truck

The bigger version of this book is a favorite of the boys, so I think it's only natural she would love this board book variation! It's a cute, shortened version of the longer story, easy hold with her little hands, and just a really fun book to read.

Enjoy, and happy reading!


  1. I love reading your blog but do you think you can change the color of your font? It is really hard to read especially the light gray ones. Black is the best font color especially to those wearing eyeglasses. Thank you.

    1. YES! And I'm so sorry- I totally agree and hear you. I'm getting my blog redesigned right now and it will be totally different. :)

      Thank you for the input and for reading! xoxo

  2. Hi Danielle, thats a very nice post. I remember sitting with our two little ones and enjoying their reactions and interactions as they flicked through their first books. Enjoy ;)
