I may or may not have declared my love for @chaptersindigo and my addiction to buy new books for Sofia. ❤️However, there is something unique and special about going to a local library with your child and hauling a huge bag or two full of books home! (We can get up to 15 books per account! 😁) It makes my heart explode with happiness. 🏡 📚 .
Here are some of our finds. Sofia seems to especially enjoy Llama Llama Sand & Sun by Anna Dewdney, From Head to Toe by Eric Carle, The Nose Book by Al Perkins. 😍
❣️❣️❣️ How often do you go to a library with your kids? ❣️❣️❣️
#wisewords Books are magical. They can take you to wonderful places and allow you to meet fabulous people; they can fill your brain with amazing facts and they can make you laugh, or cry. Books are magical. What are you reading today?
Once your dog, always your dog. A lovely and affecting story of a boy and his dog and their moments of elation and sadness that will resonate deeply with those of us who have grown up with pets. The illustrations and text move together in a beautiful union — simple, graceful, honest and heartwarming. This photograph doesn’t do justice to the handsome texture of the cover, so we encourage you to seek this one out for yourselves, hold it in your hands, find a quiet spot and spend some time with it.
Hey, Boy was written by Benjamin Strouse, illustrated by Jennifer Phelan (@jenandgleb) and published by Margaret K. McElderry Books (@simonkids).
See the bowl? We made banana bread today and that bowl with robot face housed our banana smash till we put it in the pan. When I was washing up C asked to play robot. We use it for all kinds of adventure but this happens to be one of our favorite games to play with it.
Swipe to see our 20th round with a crying baby in my arm, videos aren't easy for this mama people!
This game is great for kiddos who are learning to decode or sound out words.
Write words on post-it's that can be sounded out. My daughter helped with this. Then transform someone into a robot.
The robot powers on and the robot reads a word by segmenting (taking apart) the sounds.
Next the humans guess the word and can keep the word they get correct. Keep playing till all words are guessed.
We haven't done a book of the night in so long! Tonight we read "Little Red Riding Hood"- one of my favorites!! I may have been a little too animated for an evening read but I don't regret it. Hearing how excited she got was worth the extra half an hour to settle her down ❤
