The Day the Meanie Dragon Showed Up at My Daughters' School

My girls love to climb the trees at their school.

IMG_0590 (1)

As soon as they see me at dismissal, they hand off their backpacks and run away with their friends - sometimes stopping to see me for a quick chat or snack. Most often they're monkeying up the handful of trees lining the school's playground.

Easy Bookmark Craft for Kids

Establishing a love of reading can be tricky sometimes. Children who would rather run around and be active physically may not see the "fun" in exploring through a story... at first. The key is to choose books that speaks specifically to their interest and personality. Allow them to select which books stand out to them - superheroes, all things locomotives, comedies, comics, holiday themed, etc. As they become excited about what they're reading, they'll want to do it more! Go a step further…

Are you a digital girl?

For the past few birthdays, someone usually asks me if I want a kindle or other device to read books on. I always decline. I explain that I like my physical books and I spend too much time in my workday looking at screens. I understand that those devices are more convenient and can hold an entire library's worth of books, but I just like the feel of paper too much to give up the real deal.…

7 tips for nurturing a budding book worm

We have been in the used book store for more than an hour. Since my son has started reading on his own, picking out new books has become a MUCH more serious task than it used to be. I normally let him move at his own pace in the bookstore, but it is past lunch time, and I am pretty convinced he will sit on the floor all day and read every book he can if I let him.…

The book on the shelf

I recently took all my cookbooks to our used book store and traded them in for store credit. While there, I let my son choose some new books. He was super excited to go to his section and pick out whatever books he wanted (at only $2 per book, I said yes to everything he chose.) He chose some new Disney story books, a few I Can Read books and some Sesame…

Looking for a few good books

My son's school is having a book fair this week. Of course, we will go. I have fond memories of school book fairs when I was little, and they haven't changed much. You look through the catalog, go through the tables at the fair, buy your books and stay up late over the weekend reading them all so you could trade books with friends the next week at school.…
