Children's Books ~ One A Day for 365 Days!

My friend, Donna, over at Irresistible Ideas for Play Based Learning has been making a wonderful photo journal, posting one picture per day for 365 days. She set out a challenge for folks to join her. Several other bloggers/educators have joined in, including Lesley over at Takoma Park Cooperative Nursery School and Greg over at Males In Early Childhood Education.

I'm not a photographer, so I initially didn't consider participating in the challenge. After giving this intriguing challenge some thought, I've decided to share one children's book a day for 365 days. I am a fanatical collector of children's books, so what better way for me to participate, than to share a beloved book each day. Look for the Children's Books ~ One A Day for 365 Days! photo album on the little illuminations facebook page to see which book I feature each day. I promise to share some popular favorites, plus a few you may have never heard of before. 

Today's pick:

Mama Do You Love Me? by Barbara M. Joose

This is a beautifully illustrated story of a young Inuit girl who continually questions the limits of her mother's love, but learns a mother's love has no boundaries. 


  1. Love this author - thanks, Ayn. I cannot wait to see your daily picks.


  2. What a great spin on this interesting idea Ayn. Looks like we're all doing something a little different. Although I don't really have any visual with mine. I love how you've added it to your blog too.

  3. What a lovely idea! Would you mind if I joined you?

  4. Thanks, Barbara! I've already got some good ones in mind!

    Greg~ I figured if you could do something a little different, then so could I! I love your take on it, too!

    Stacy~ That would be sooo cool! Be sure to leave a link so I can check yours out, too! It will be fun to see what other books are favorites! Thanks for playing along!


Thank you for visiting little illuminations. I'd love you to share your thoughts!
