Our Family’s Morning Basket Favorites

Our school days are slooooowly returning. The first thing I add back in is Morning Time! It is our favorite time of the day. We gather around for breakfast or a snack and read together. Morning Time is done “family style” with all of our children (ages 5-9) joining in as we loop through each study. We keep our morning baskets tucked away in our breakfast nook. (I found our baskets at hobby lobby.)

(Over the weekend, I organized our books for this year’s basket.)

Even though we rotate our basket’s materials, some books seem to stick around longer than others. Scroll down to read a list of some old favorites along with a few new ones we recently discovered. Do you have a Morning Basket Favorite?

(check back as we add to our list this school year)

I also just discovered today is PRIME DAY! Which means it’s a great time for us book lovers to stock up on Amazon!

Us code PRIMEBOOK19 for $5 off your $15+ book purchase! Yay!
