Children's Books

Welcome to magnolia.com, whether you're a parent, teacher, or simply a book lover, we have a few great children's books written by Joanna Gaines. 

In We Are the Gardeners, Joanna and the kids chronicle the adventures of starting their own family garden. From their failed endeavors, obstacles to overcome (bunnies that eat everything!), and all the knowledge they've gained along the way, the Gaines family shares how they learned to grow a happy, successful garden.

In The World Needs Who You Were Made to Be, Joanna tells the story of a group of kids who come together to build their very own hot air balloons. Along the way, these kids learn to work together, leaning in to their own skills and processes, to fill the sky with beautiful colors. Featuring vibrant illustrations by Julianna Swaney, this book shows the beauty of celebrating our differences and taking care of one another. “You’re one of a kind, and it’s so clear to see: The world needs who you were made to be.”

Engaging Children in Reading

Engaging children in reading is crucial for their intellectual development and lifelong love for books. Here are some effective strategies to promote reading and make it a fun and enjoyable activity for your child.

1. Fun activities to promote reading: Incorporating fun activities into reading can enhance your child's interest and engagement. Consider organizing regular reading challenges, where your child can set reading goals and earn rewards for completing them. You can also plan interactive storytelling sessions, where you take turns reading a story and encourage your child to participate by asking questions or acting out scenes.

2. Creating a reading routine: Establishing a consistent reading routine helps your child develop good reading habits. Set aside a specific time each day dedicated to reading, such as before bedtime or during a quiet afternoon. Make it a cozy and comfortable experience by creating a designated reading nook with soft pillows and blankets.
