What We’re Reading

Hi! Fly Guy by Tedd Arnold was an easy-reader hit with Delaney this week. She has been happily rereading it a few times a day. We are looking forward to reading more of Buzz and Fly Guy’s sweet and silly adventures, like Super Fly Guy and I Spy Fly Guy.

We also enjoyed visiting Tedd Arnold’s website for answers to kids’ questions, coloring pages, and information about being an author/illustrator.

Creative Products

I love just about every product made by Mudpuppy – the illustrations are amazing and the quality is excellent. I have been browsing through some of their new products and I love their Flip & Draw books. They are wire-bound booklets with 15 sheets divided into thirds horizontally. Each book has 10 mix & match characters to color, and 5 blank sheets for a creating your own characters. Sounds like the perfect activity for a car ride! I would pick the Farm Animals and Let’s Dress Up. (Available at Amazon and Mudpuppy. Check your local toy store, too!)

Hope you are having a wonderful week!
