River of Dreams The story of the Hudson River.
Princess has a thing for rivers, of course so do we.When I saw this book on
our libraries shelf, I had to bring it home with us.This lushly illustrated book
gives the history of the Hudson River, and the people and creatures who live there.
It also gives the history of the fight to save the river from those who have lost sight
of the fact that the river can only take care of us, if we take care of it.
We will be making our way through the suggested reading list and web sites in the back of the book as well.Chele, if you haven't read this yet, you would enjoy it!
We have been enjoying this picture book about the Revolutionary War.
The author uses the song Yankee Doodle and explains what the song meant
at the time in sidebars.Princess really enjoyed the detail of the uniforms
of the animal soldiers.A great way to bring a bit of history to life for young children.
A long time ago some smart guys had some smart ideas...
unfortunately, most kids get lost in the language of the document.
OK, a lot of adults do as well.;-)
The author gives it to the kids (and their folks) in plain talk
(with his humorous illustrations helping to make the point)
they can all understand. This was a fun compliment to Yankee Doodle.
I'll try to come back later with some photos from this weekend, and keep
checking in, because we will be having a give away this week...I have some
really cool prizes to send out. Thank you all for your kind words about
Princess. She is healing well, one tooth out, the other soon to follow (we think),
less pain every day, my blood pressure is almost back to normal from seeing all that blood...
