This Week's Book Post on a Tuesday

Hello Dear Friends,
I am not feeling like blogging right now.
Most of my computer time has been used
up reading my e-mails today.
I have some exciting things coming to you
in the next week or so book wise, so stay tuned.
For now, I will leave you with the top of our library stack
this week....


I thought this book might be a bit above Princess's head,
but as we've been reading it, she is quite interested.
Weather has a very obvious impact on us all, so
learning about it is necessary, in my opinion.
We have a lot of project ideas floating around
in our heads for the upcoming weeks.
We'll be sure to keep you all posted.


A lovely book filled with poetry and quotes by the likes of
John Donne and Ralph Waldo Emerson
who wrote the following:
'Tis the good reader that makes the good book;
in every book he finds passages which seem
confidences or asides hidden from all else and
unmistakably meant for his ear
The only thing more lovely are Tasha Tudor's
watercolors.

This is a sweet book about the power of a hug.
Princess loves to hug, so she really liked
this book.Visit the author here. Feel free
to give her a virtual hug.
Like this ((BIG HUGS))
Be sure to visit some of my Gal Pals,
Nina, and Mrs W, both have nice book posts up today.

Big Hugs going on my library list. Silas loves to hug. He will say "I'm scared" just to get a hug. When I say "why are you scared?" he says "werewolves"

Those look really good. I love the Spring book (and Tasha Tudor, of course), and CJ is a hugger too. i'm guessing the weather book would be over her head, but I'll bet she'd enjoy looking at the pictures. Thanks for the ideas!

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 .
