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?

Reading Books, Lifting Flaps

Reading Books, Lifting Flaps

Hiya Bookworms! This is probably the least surprising thing about me, but I LOVE reading stories to little kids. One of the things I looked most forward to when I imagined having a child was the bedtime stories. Reading in our house is not confined to bedtime by any means, but since my husband and I both work full time and the kiddo goes to bed early, there’s not a… Read more »

My Name is Jonas: The Giver by Lois Lowry

Hello there, Bookworms! I hope you’re all well rested after “falling back” this weekend. For those of you who don’t live in areas where Daylight Savings Time is observed, I hope you got extra sleep anyway. Sleep is wonderful. This week I’m going to focus on The Giver by Lois Lowry.

Life Lessons Courtesy of Harriet The Spy

Life Lessons Courtesy of Harriet The Spy

One of my all time favorite childhood books is Harriet The Spy by Louise Fitzhugh. Harriet is a precocious 11 year old girl who aspires to be a spy. She wanders around New York City (yeah thinking about that NOW is a little scary, but suspend your disbelief for a moment.) She observes her neighbors and classmates while writing down her notes in her special spy notebook. Harriet’s regimented existence… Read more »
