One of the greatest gifts you can give a child, is teaching them to read and love books.  I remember as a child, my grandmother used to send me books, and I devoured them!  I couldn't wait for the next one to show up.  In fact, I've hung on to a couple of them through the years, and although time has taken it's toll on them, they're still readable, and still fond memories of my grandmother.

Now back then my grandmother had to go to a store and choose the book, then package it and send it.  I understand now, just how special a gift those books were.  And, it's something you can still do, but in today's world of hustle and bustle, just trying to keep up with everyday life can be as much as many of us can handle.  There are lots of websites featuring books, but at, you'll find a huge selection of children's books that you can choose from the comfort of your own home.  

Bola, a mother of two, developed her idea while pregnant with her second child.  It's enabled her to stay at home, and still  achieve a dream of enriching children's lives through the introduction of amazing books.  You, as the buyer, can rest assured that your selection will not only thrill the child receiving it, but just possibly become the fuel that ignites a love of reading.  In today's world there are so many products we can purchase for our children and grandchildren, but a book can become the treasured keepsake that someday they'll read to their own children.

The layout of, is so easy to navigate, it's sure to become a bookmarked favorite once you visit.  Bola has broken it down into categories either by age, or by interests.  She even posts featured books that have proved to be popular with many.  Each book has a description of the story line, and you'll even find information about the authors of the books, so you get a feel for their back story and how they came about to write such cherished books for kids.

And just when you though it couldn't get any better there's a Reward, has thought of everything, and provides quality books at amazing prices.  Shipping is even FREE if you order $25.00 or more......and they ship in 1-2 days after you've placed your order.  You simply have to go and check it out--I promise, you won't be disappointed!

Additional features:

1.  There's a birthday club where parents/grandparents/gift buyers can sign up the kids in their lives. They get a handpicked selection of suggested titles 2 -4 weeks before the birthday along with a special discount. 

2.  July 2012 -the launch of a fund-raising program begins. PTAs, little leagues and church groups would be able to sign up for fundraisers on and get back 20% of the sales proceeds minus shipping while the participants also get 5% off their purchase.

3.  Gift Certificates are available!  

Be sure to stop by's Facebook page and say hi!

Spring-Summer Color Trends for 2012

I'm always curious to know where the trending colors are going, and how well Adorable Baby Clothing represents those colors.  I was really pleased to find that the colors you'll find on the website, are right in there with the newest "hot" colors for the year.

Spring colors were trending toward the light and playful colors, combined with neutrals to make a refined statement.  You'll find the bright orange and yellows throughout the selections on Adorable Baby Clothing in everything from play wear to formal wear.  Adding to the mix of vibrant color, are the teals, navy, khaki and reds.  The beauty of neutrals, is that you can combine them in a multitude of ways with just about any other color to create a custom look.

Green seemed to take on a larger role in summer clothing, and there's plenty to choose from for both girls and boys.  

Combinations of colors are important too.  Mixing the pinks and greens with yellow offers a subtle alternative to solids, while classics like navy and white create a timeless appeal that will stand the test of time.  The point is, to have fun, and use colors to express your own personality.  Gone are the days of everyone wearing the "same ole, same ole".....there's such a huge variety today, that you can virtually create your own style.
