the library right now....
I am a bit surprised that Princess has enjoyed this as much as she has.
She picked it out at the library, and has spent a lot of time looking through it.
She says it reminds her of playing Poseidon on the computer.
A Perfect Father's Day
This book is a perennial fave around here..Father's Day would not be the same
without it. The little girl "takes" her Dad out for lunch and fun at the park on Father's Day.
We all really crack up when she tells him that Mom is baking a special cake for a surprise
at home, because Princess cannot keep a secret AT ALL!! Especially from Dad. ;-)
Happy Birthday America
Another favorite..feels like a perfect Fourth of July!
A little girl who enjoys playing with her shadow, gets very upset
when she "loses" it on a cloudy day.Princess loved the drawings of
the animals, and it inspired us to try a lot of shadow fun around here.
the Dumpster Diver
We got a big kick out of this book about
three kids and their neighbor teaming up to make stuff out of
the treasures they find in dumpsters behind their alley.
Who could resist a book that begins with the words...
Today is Grandma's birthday,The cute illustrations made us laugh and there is a recipe we'll be trying in the back of the book.
and Granddad has an itchin'
to bake a whopper chocolate cake
and traumatize the kitchen.
An Island Scrapbook
We have really been enjoying this book!
It will go on our list of favorite "summer" books for sure!
Told in scrapbook form it takes you dawn to dusk on a barrier island.
Makes us want to head down the shore, although, I could do without
the Alligators of North Carolina.
the Flag Maker
This is the story of the flag that inspired Francis Scott Key to write the Star Spangled Banner.
It is told through the eyes of young Caroline Pickersgill, the daughter of important flag maker,
Mary Pickersgill.It was a bit too"wordy" for Princess, but she did enjoy the lovely watercolor paintings.
I have so many more books to write about, I may have to write another book post this week.
