new fall board books {toddler reads}

Well folks, here we are at the unofficial end of summer and beginning of fall.  I’m so relieved to be done with summer because I live in the desert.  We had a pretty mild summer… I don’t think it even reached 120 this year… but I am still so ready for fall festivities!  Time to handpick apples, create a million and 1 slow cooker recipes and hunt for Halloween costumes — wuhoo!

My son is 19 months now and has a ton of energy.  He is highly distracted, living in his own world, and always on the go.  Seriously, the kid could not be less interested in his toys.  He flips everything upside down and runs away… that’s the extent of his interest.  He would much rather be outside playing in the dirt, the sand, the rocks, the grass… woodchips, leaves… anything.

Literally the only “toy” that can make my son stop and sit is a book.  He LOVES board books.  Hey, if he’d rather sit and quietly look through books as opposed to banging on plastic light-up toys, so be it. = ) Board books are perfect for roadtrippin, which I talk about it my post yesterday: 10 Tips for Traveling with Toddlers.
