Inspired by kids books

I loved reading bedtime stories to my son when he was really little. We fell off it for a long while when he was old enough to read on his own, though. As mentioned a few days ago, we recently started reading at the dinner table instead. It's had me thinking about some of his... Continue Reading →

Illustrated Harry Potter 1-4

For the first time in his young life, I've been able to really read with my son. It took a while to get him to the place where he wasn't dreading the experience and I tend to give up after a chapter or two if he does, but then lockdown.... I'm kidding, it wasn't lockdown... Continue Reading →

Top Ten Favorite Books to Read to My Son

I know, I know, that's not the theme for this week, but this Top Ten Tuesday just happens to fall on my son's birthday. He has his own full sized bookshelf in our house and at least as many books as my husband and I have put together. We usually read 2 to 3 books... Continue Reading →

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

Review: It was great to revisit this classic! I reread it for the Read Harder 2017 task 9: Read a book you've read before.

The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place by Julie Berry

Review: I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I got this book from the library, but how could I resist a title like this? A scandalous sisterhood? Sign me up! It's listed under both YA and middle grade, which I felt was appropriate after listening to it. Here's the back cover... Continue Reading →

Rad American Woman A-Z: Rebels, Trailblazers, and Visionaries who Shaped Our History … and Our Future! by Kate Schatz and Miriam Klein Stahl

Ok, this one is a children's book for ages 8-16. I still read it because I thought that made it even more interesting. I do love a good anthology of women's accomplishments. It just drives me nuts that it has taken so long and women are so slowly getting the credit they've deserved in so... Continue Reading →
