What We’re Reading

Mmm…chocolate… We’ve been enjoying a stack of chocolate-inspired books from our bookshelf and the library, which makes for some delicious bedtime reads. I’m thinking The Chocolate Touch would be a great read-aloud chapter book to start next. :)

Have you seen these puzzles? I saw them at our local toy store and they look SO cool. Each puzzle has three different puzzle piece sizes, so everyone in the family, from littles to grown-ups, can work on the puzzle together. Isn’t that neat? They are totally on my wish list!
