Today is also National P.B.& J. Day!
Princess goes off and on PB&J.
Actually, she loves PB...not so much the J.
We were going to make some and meet up
with friends for a picnic lunch, but it is windy and cool
here, so we're meeting up at a McD's with play area.
We cannot miss out on meeting up, it's our good friend's
21st Birthday (again) and we want to celebrate with her!
Speaking of birthdays, today is also the birthday of Hans Christian Andersen.
and we will be reading THE PERFECT WIZARD by Jane Yolen and illustrated by Dennis Nolan
to celebrate it. Maybe we'll have a late afternoon tea with PB&J....
In honor of International Children's Book Day, here is an itty bitty book post for you
POLES APART Why Penguins and Polar Bears Will Never Be Neighbors
Princess has been enjoying this, book by Elaine Scott.
It is a bit "text book" like for her to enjoy listening to for very long,
but the pictures and subject matter she likes, so I have been breaking it down
into smaller sections for us. We will take it out next year to learn more in depth I'm sure.
There is a further reading and website of interest section in the back of the book
that we will also make use of.
Your Backyard with step- by -step projects for the young scientist
is getting us really excited to get back outside to dig around.
Many are things that we have already done, but we will do again.
Weather Words and what they mean
It is hard to beat Gail Gibbons for this type of book.
Princess and I love watching shows about the weather,
and I think this will help her understand better some of
what the weather pros talk about.
Down to Earth Garden secrets,stories,and projects.
41 Children's book authors and their favorite garden memories.
We can't wait to try some of the projects!
A SEED IS SLEEPY
We were so happy that our library finally got this book in.
We are all about the seeds right now, and this is a lovely book
I have so many more books to tell you about and pictures to upload,
but our play date awaits and so I will return later to post pics.
