It's National Children's Book Day!

We will be visited today by our good friends,
who are on Spring Break.They read quite well,so Princess has a
big pile of books picked out for them to read to her.
Some of them are pictured on the left, but there are many more to be enjoyed.
I urge you to pick up a stack of children's books today and read to
or with your children.

Another poem for Poetry Month:

By Marchette Chute


Squelch and squirt and squiggle,
Drizzle and drip and drain-
Such a lot of water
Comes down with the rain!

Oh good books and big kids to read to Princess! I hope the day went well. I love visitors who can read to Citcat!

How did you like Banjo Granny? I need to order One Bean by Anne Rockwell. I'm not sure if I've read it.

Cute poem. I just might add a poem to some of my April posts. The weather is so nice today and tomorrow that I haven't even thought about a post to write. Maybe toinght.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
