What’s Sammy Reading? Kid Lit with my Kidlet!

What’s Sammy Reading? Kid Lit with my Kidlet!

Howdy Bookworms, I only finished one book this week (The Boyfriend Project by Farrah Rochon- it’s super cute!) so I thought instead of a normal weekly update I’d talk about that book in next week’s roundup and focus on some of Sammy’s current favorites this week.   Harriet Gets Carried Away by Jessie Sima- My friend Jenny from Reading the End turned me on to this one! I think it… Read more »

Kid Lit with my Kidlet: Sammy’s Current Faves

Howdy Bookworms, I can’t tell you how much it thrills me that Sammers enjoys reading stories with me. I mean, sure, I’ve been reading to him at least nightly since infancy, but he’s reached an age where he can actively choose the books we read and interacts with the stories. It’s so stinking cute. If you need book recs for the kiddos in your life, read on, friends! We Are… Read more »

Kid Lit with my Kidlet: Penguin Problems and Reading with Voices

Kid Lit with my Kidlet: Penguin Problems and Reading with Voices

Hiya Bookworms, This pandemic is wild. It’s so awful on so many levels, and even though we’re faring better than I might have expected in our household, I still have the occasional breakdown. I mean, I’m human. I also have a strong-willed toddler. It’s all A LOT. But I’m trying really hard to document the good things, because there have been many good things, mostly surrounding all the extra time… Read more »

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Twelfth (With Bonus Kid Lit)

2020 Weekly Wrap-Up: The Twelfth (With Bonus Kid Lit)

Hey Bookworms, Life comes at you fast, huh? Two weeks ago coronavirus was scary, but not panic inducing. Today it’s changed just about everything. I used to LOVE reading fictional accounts of plagues and pandemics. Now? Not so much. Two weeks ago I started writing a listicle of some of the great plague books I’d read over the years, but I just don’t have it in me to finish that… Read more »

Penguin Books for Every Occasion: Kid Lit with my Kidlet

Penguin Books for Every Occasion: Kid Lit with my Kidlet

Hiya Bookworms! Y’all know by now that I’m an avid penguin enthusiast, and that I shamelessly roped my child into the obsession (check out his first Halloween and nursery if you require proof.) Sammy has a MASSIVE book collection, and a large swath of that is dedicated to our flightless feathered friends. I know what you’re thinking. “How many penguin books can there possibly be? And on how many subjects?… Read more »

Holly Jolly Toddler Books

Greetings, Bookworms! One of my favorite humans just asked me for book recommendations for her Toddler Godson and I could NOT have been more excited. I sent her about 20 disjointed Twitter DMs, but I thought pooling some of that knowledge into an actual blog post might help someone else out. Sam’s library is so extensive, thanks in large part to family members with elementary education backgrounds, that I sometimes… Read more »

Kid Lit with My Kidlet: Halloween 2018

Greetings, Bookworms! ‘Tis the season for pumpkins and candy, so I thought I’d share a few of the seasonally appropriate books I’ve been reading with Sammy lately. My son has a very impressive library, and, like his very impressive wardrobe, it has little to do with my own shopping. We’ve got some very astute children’s literature aficionados in our orbit who like to spoil the young sir. As a result,… Read more »

Kidlit with my Kidlet

Howdy Bookworms! I’ve been reading and listening to oodles of books lately, but oddly, all I want to write about are my favorite books to read with Sam. Since I rarely write anything these days, I thought I’d just run with it.┬áSammers is 8 months old (already?! HOW DID THAT HAPPEN???) but since he’s still, you know, a baby who can’t actually say intelligible words, I get to choose our… Read more »
