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 »

A Perfectly Bookish Nursery: Penguin Edition

Salutations Bookworms! Today I’m going to explain how to create the world’s most adorable penguin and book themed nursery. You ready? Step One: Go back in time.

Plus she’s weird, like you. Step… Read more »

Questioning Katie: What’s With the Penguins?

Questioning Katie: What’s With the Penguins?

Howdy Howdy Bookworms! I’m braving another edition of Questioning Katie even though the internet thinks I’m bonkers. That’s right. The day the post in which I announced I’d be interviewing myself went live, Skype saw fit to show me ads for schizophrenia medication. I’m rather offended that the internet thinks I’m significantly more severely mentally ill than I actually am. Way to be a jerk, Skype. I wasn’t hearing voices, I was just… Read more »

"Where'd You Go, Bernadette" by Maria Semple. (Why Did Nobody Mention the PENGUINS?!)

"Where'd You Go, Bernadette" by Maria Semple. (Why Did Nobody Mention the PENGUINS?!)

Hello my Bookworms, I’m hosting this month’s neighborhood book club meeting, which means, among other things, that I got to choose the book. I decided on Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple, because I’d seen that a lot of my favorite book bloggers really enjoyed it. Everybody who reviewed this book mentioned its humor, of which there was plenty, but NOBODY mentioned the PENGUINS. I’m sorry, I’m getting ahead of myself…. Read more »

Confession Friday: I am NOT a Penguin

Confession Friday: I am NOT a Penguin

Happy Friday, Bookworms! I’d like to take the opportunity to share with you a book that has taught me a lot of critical life lessons. I’m going to review the masterpiece that is If You Were a Penguin by Wendell and Florence Minor. (You’d be crazy to think I didn’t notice that the wife in this penguin writing duo has THE SAME NAME as the wife in the penguin writing duo of Mr. Popper’s… Read more »

9 out of 10 Penguins Prefer My Blog (The 10th Penguin was Eaten by a Leopard Seal.)

Hello my Bookworms! I know, I know, I’ve been absent. I’m sorry. I’ve been rolling around jovially in a potent stew of holiday spirit, thousands of cookies, and more than a few drops of liquor. It’s been a magical experience, to be sure. I’ve been trying to keep up with my reading, but you try to read when there is so much visceral fun to be had. Seriously. Anyway, I’ve… Read more »

Confession Friday: I Have a Penguin Problem

Confession Friday: I Have a Penguin Problem

I have a penguin problem. When I was in the 3rd grade, I made a penguin habitat out of a shoebox and a white mold-a-rama penguin from the Brookfield Zoo. Ever since then I’ve been a crazy penguin lady. Penguin jewelry, penguin trinkets, penguin teapots, an entire drawer full of penguin pajamas… It should come as no surprise that I count Mr. Popper’s Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater among my favorite… Read more »
