Peter Carnegie’s Children’s Books

Jenny, 5 Minutes for Mom contributor, shares a look into Peter Carnegie’s children’s books. This giveaway post is sponsored, but all opinions remain those of the writer.

Books are my daughter’s love language.  In fact, “book” was her first word. As a result I am constantly looking for new books to entertain her and to engage her mind.

Peter Carnegie Childrens Books

Peter Carnegie’s beautifully illustrated stories were perfect for my avid reader. The simple, yet interesting plots caught her attention. She recited the repetitious parts. The illustrations caught her imagination and she spent hours looking at the pictures and describing what she saw.

These books combine humor, heartfelt stories, rhyme, and imaginative illustrations. The stories are perfect for a variety of ages!

You can order your own copies on Amazon.

I Love You Like A Monkey is a fun book of animals and their favorite things.  It describes how much a person can love another person with comparisons that children can understand.


Malcolm McDinkelstorm Fedderman Stitch has a lot of fun, some silly names, great examples of imaginative play, and catchy rhymes to entertain your reader.

I love how these books not only tell great stories, but also inspire imagination and encourage memorization! My daughter was reciting lines from “I Love You Like a Monkey” just days after receiving her book and it quickly became a favorite!

    Yes! My girls are in love with reading. My one year old will go to the shelf and pull her favorite and bring it over to climb on my lap. It is so cute!

  2. AMy m says

    I don’t have kids, but one of my best friends teaches developmentally challenged, urban preschool kids, and I go read to his kids once in a while. It’s such fun time for all of us, and remnds me how lucky I am that I grew up with books and the encouragement to love them.

  3. Rebecca Parsons says

    I think they are great. I love to have the kids read and they love it too. They learn to appreciate books when they are young.

  4. Jasmine R says

    Yes!! Mine is learning how to read so she is extremely excited. she loves for me to read to her and loves that she can now recognize many of the words.

  5. Erin Ellis says

    All 4 of my children love books, they are all avid readers and we read together as a family on a regular basis

    I believed in this article as I am a parent with 3 lovely daughters. Tablet games are not bad they can learn from it and since you can sometimes install an app to limit and control their playing time such as Screen-time Ninja. In this app you can limit what time they can start playing if their time credit expires and they still want to earn more playing time they have to solve a math problem to gain extra playing time. Its great huh? Yeah I am using this app and I find it useful and helpful for me as I am a busy mom who has a day job and I can’t monitor them every hour. :)

    my daughter does like books, and she’s learning to read so i love having new things for her to read.

  10. Terra Heck says

    My children definitely love books, especially in the evening after supper. Thanks.

  11. Sunnymay says

    My kids love books along with my grandson. I think it’s because they liked sitting in laps when tiny and grew into their own interests in reading. When I was little, we had to turn the lights out, but I read by flashlight.

  12. Laura J says

    Oh Carter LOVES his books! We spend alot of time reading each day and before bed! He just loves stories!

  13. Audra O'Hara says

    Oh yes I do! You could tell if you walked into my daughter’s room. She has 2 toddler bookcases full of books and piles of them on the floor. We read 3 book every night before bed.

  15. allyson tice says

    I love children’s books! They are full of wonder and creation! My kids just love to imagine living like they do in the books! Its so much fun to imagine and play!

  16. Stephanie Grant says

    Absolutely!! I’m an avid reader myself and my son has picked up my reading habit and with him being only 6 years old and reading at a 6th grade level (according to his teacher at school!) is just so amazing to me! With that said I am always looking for new books to add to his reading collection because he loves to read and I want to fuel his passion!

  17. Becky VanGinkel says

    Yes, they do!! We have an 11 year old son, 4 year old daughter, and 18 month old daughter.. and they ALL love books! I think it’s the cutest thing ever when I find our 11 year old son reading to his two little sisters.. they badger him into it at least a few times a week 😉 And we have family reading time every night for at least 30 minutes.. the 3 kids alternate picking books for us to read together.

  18. Stacy F. says

    Yes, I absolutely love children’s books! I take my little 13 month old to the library every 2 weeks and get our fix to take home!!

  19. Marcia Goss` says

    My children have always loved to read, and now I am teaching my grandchildren the pleasures of reading.

  20. Kimberly says

    My daughter loves books. Since she has been able to walk, she has picked up books and just backed her little butt up to whatever open lap there is to be read to.

  21. Taryn T. says

    My children do love books! The youngest love to read, and be read to. Now that the oldest is a teenager, though, it is more challenging to get him to read for fun.

  22. Lori A. says

    I am blessed with children who really enjoy reading. I have always loved to read and made sure to do it in front of them and with them. When my son was a toddler he wouldn’t always sit still for a book, but I would read to him while he played.
