books for kids (that also teach!)

We love gifting new books to our daughters for any occasion. We recently partnered with Candlewick Press to review some of their latest children’s books releases. They sent us 6 books for kids (that also teach!) and they are perfect for gifting. We love that the books also teach educational concepts to children through fun, engaging stories and beautiful, colorful illustrations! Check out our full IGTV review, and links to each of the books below. 

Paper Peek: Animals by Chihiro Takeuchi

Paper Peek Animals

This mesmerizing board book is designed for ages 0-3. It features paper backgrounds with animal patterns and invites kids to use their visual discrimination skills to spot specific animals on each page. This book is perfect for teaching about various animals across the globe, introducing counting skills, and practicing search-and-find activities.

This is a Book of Shapes by Kenneth Kraegel

This is a Book of Shapes

This creative board book is designed for ages 2-5. It features simple illustrations of basic geometric shapes, paired with delightfully silly illustrations of animals engaged in hilarious activities, like an emu pushing a pancake wagon down a hill! This book is a great introduction to shapes, while also engaging kids in the enjoyment of surprising storytelling.

My Favorite Color by Aaron Becker

My Favorite Color

This is a gorgeous board book full of colors and designed for ages 4-8. Children are often asked to state their favorite color, but this book reveals that each color can shift along a beautiful spectrum of hues and shades. This book teaches colors, but also expands on that idea to introduce deeper appreciation of the expansive range of colors that can be found in nature and art.

See the Cat: Three Stories About a Dog by David LaRochelle

See the Cat: Three Stories About a Dog

This book contains a trio of stories designed for ages 4-8, and is a perfect book for young readers. The narrator introduces basic sentences like “see the cat” and the character of Max emphatically lets the readers know that Max is NOT a cat, he is a dog! This is a super fun way to expand on the simple storylines of basic primer reading books.

I'm Tyler Moore 

My wife and I live with our three young girls in a 700-square-foot apartment in New York City. I started Tidy Dad to help others tidy, simplify, and find joy in their lives. I firmly believe the tidying process can transform your life. I’d love for you to join me in exploring ways that tidying can make room for what’s important in life.

About me

Hi, my name is Tyler Moore. My wife and I live with our three young daughters in a 700- square-foot apartment in New York City. I began my tidying journey when an early-30’s crisis invited me to reflect upon, challenge, and change my patterns of daily living. I quit my job as a school administrator, returned to teaching, and started Tidy Dad to help others tidy, simplify, and find joy in their lives. I firmly believe the tidying process can transform your life. I’d love for you to join me in exploring ways that tidying can make room for what’s important in life.
