What We’re Reading

A couple of our favorite series have new books that we are eager to add to our collection: I Broke My Trunk! (Elephant and Piggie) and Scaredy Squirrel Has a Birthday Party.

I’ve also added a March book list to the sidebar with some of our seasonal reads – both old favorites and new picks. Enjoy!

We have been having so much fun playing Doodle Dice. It’s a game that my husband and I don’t mind playing over and over again, which is always a good thing! You build pictures using shapes on the dice, trying to collect one of each color card. The color cards range in difficulty from designs that use one shape to designs that use six shapes. Those purple cards can be hard to earn.  Great family game!

See you tomorrow for the Ways to Play in March free download!
