Somehow September is just around the corner. Yeah, I can’t believe it either. I’m looking forward to the cool, crisp weather and apples, pumpkins and fall leaf piles to play in. Below are the six books I’ve compiled for you to vote on for our September book selection. The survey is at the bottom so scroll on down and vote!
7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess – You’ve probably heard of this book…maybe. It’s caused quite the stir and for good reason. Reading this just might change you, or so I’ve heard as I’ve not yet read it. “7 is the true story of how Jen (along with her husband and her children to varying degrees) took seven months, identified seven areas of excess, and made seven simple choices to fight back against the modern-day diseases of greed, materialism, and overindulgence.”
Sleeping with Your Baby: A Parent’s Guide to Cosleeping – If you’ve been in AP circles for any length of time you’ve heard of Dr. James McKenna and his work on infant-maternal sleep. This book is chock-full of information and the fascinating studies done on co-sleeping and bedsharing. I’ve only read a portion of it and thoroughly enjoyed what I read.
Finding Balance with Attachment Parenting – I received this as part of a bundle I purchased and thought some of you may be interested in it. Because attachment parenting can be intense at times, it can be hard to maybe find that balance. It is possible to meet your baby’s needs as well as your own and this book helps you discover that.
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life – I’ve heard this recommended and was interested in reading it. From Amazon: “Author Barbara Kingsolver and her family abandoned the industrial-food pipeline to live a rural life—vowing that, for one year, they’d only buy food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it.”
The Elegance of the Hedgehog – Two friends recommended this work of fiction so it’s here on my list. It was a bestseller in France so that says something, right? 😉 I wasn’t sure which bit to pull from the description so just hop over to Amazon to read the whole description if you’re interested.
Loving Our Kids On Purpose: Making A Heart-To-Heart Connection – Another one that was recommended to me, I love the title! From Amazon: “Rather than the traditional approaches that train children to learn to accept being controlled by well-meaning parents and adults, this book teaches parents how to train children to manage their freedoms and protect their important heart-to-heart relationships.”
So, what will it be? It’s up to you! Please vote below for which book you’d like to read along with me in September.
