Book Rotation & Favorite Fall Books


There is one thing that I don’t mind taking over my kids play area and that is…books! I am always happy to purchase and receive books for my kids. With that being said, however, I also like to be able to mix things up and have new books to read without necessarily buying them all of the time. When my oldest daughter was around two I started rotating some of our more seasonal books. We have a special basket in our main living area that only holds books that pertain to that certain season or upcoming holiday(s). I store them with my seasonal decorations and pull them out when that time of year is upon us. Every year I also try to add a book or two to each collection. My kids love when certain books come out and it is fun to have new books to read that we don’t have out all of the time. Here is a peek inside our fall book basket!

I am a wife and mommy to two sweet girls ages 4 and 10 months. I work from home part-time as an art teacher for a local online school. As a Cincinnati native I love this city and am so thankful to be raising my family here. I love getting creative with my four year old and letting her run wild with paint and lots of other art supplies. I am passionate about encouraging creativity and art making at any age. When I am not crafting or having adventures with my little girls, I love organizing, decorating, shopping for a bargain, exploring new places for family fun around the city, cooking, and searching for local restaurants with great food. I also run an Etsy shop, be tees. by AJB (, with my sister selling screen printed baby and toddler apparel.
