Classic Treasury of Childhood Wonders

Being from the Pacific Northwest means that many spring days are spent inside waiting for the rain to pass.  Although I would have plenty to keep me busy should I be rained in for the week, kids and toddlers are another story entirely.  For them, the best way to spend an indoor day is to learn, make crafts, and imagine, and I found just the book to make that happen.

Childhoodwonderscoverfinal The Classic Treasury of Childhood Wonders (National Geographic Children's Books) is a gorgeous hardbound book filled with classic stories, poems, and illustrations paired with numerous activities to do as a family that are fun for a variety of ages.  Not just a gift for kids, this book is a great family gift.  Think of it as a piece of art to put up on the bookshelf that you can pull down to create some really beautiful memories with your child.  

Celebrating all that is pure and innocent about childhood, Childhood Wonders is part treasury, part activity book, and is one of our new favorite children's titles.  Whether you feel like curling up with your kiddos and reading a good book or you've got imagination to spare, Childhood Wonders is a good bet. 

Although I love a good mama snuggle while we read {who doesn't?}, I am really excited about all the activities that the kiddos and I can do together.  From directions on how to create a hideaway fort, playing with shadows, and easy recipes we can cook up together, Childhood Wonders has all the makings of a great day. 

Besides being filled with page after page of gorgeous illustrations, stories, poems and activities, The Classic Treasury of Childhood Wonders has a great vintage appeal that makes flipping through the pages fun.  Whether you are developing a collection of children’s books for your child’s library or are looking to add this to your own bookcase, it will stand out in your collection and be a favorite for years to come.  

The Classic Treasury of Childhood Wonders: Favorite adventures, stories, poems, and songs for making lasting memories, by Susan Magsamen, may be a long title, but it really does say it all.  These moments with our children are incredibly precious and in this fast paced world we live in, we all could stand to do a bit slowing down and enjoying this magical time with them.  I can't wait to read Childhood Wonders with my little ones throughout the years and teach them how much fun anything can be with just a little bit of imagination.

“If we take care of the moments, the years will take care of themselves.”

  1. Hi Annie – first time really trying for a win.
    1.Checked out FamilyStories website: I checked out the instant fun page, but honestly I am most looking forward to cuddling, reading, walking Shadow and crafting (when she is older) with my first grandchild Evie.
    2.I liked National Geographic Kids on Facebook
    3. Rave&Review is #23 on Top Baby Blogs
    4. and I have been a subscriber for a while.

  2. At the Family Stories website, I think it would be fun to teach the kids how to play the card game ‘Go Fish’. I loved that game when I was little.
    Thanks for the great giveaway.

  3. I checked out the card game instructions. Playing some card games should be fun when my boys are older. I also came across the tooth fairy chart, and printed it off for when my oldest starts losing teeth.

  4. Outdoor exploring sounds delightful…
    We can plan and plant a garden, and
    watch it grow, and smile and know
    that we are caring for our food and
    flowers from seeds!!
    How magical!
