What We’re Reading

Delaney is zooming through her reading log for the library’s summer reading program. This is her first year being a reader instead of a listener and she is loving it!

Here are a few favorite picks from her reading log:

Freckleface Strawberry by Julianne Moore

If You Give a Pig a Party by Laura Numeroff

How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night? by Jane Yolen

Today I Will Fly! by Mo Willems

The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear by Audrey & Don Wood

Creative Products

Sprinkler play, sunscreen, bug spray, and little sweaty bodies mean lots of summer-time baths for my girls. Here are a few finds from Etsy to make bath time even more fun!

Organic Bath Mittens :: Ecoleeko

Have a wonderful week!

We have loved most of those books from Delaney’s reading log, too (haven’t read Freckleface Strawberry yet). We actually have a compilation book of “If You Give A Mouse a Cookie” plus “If You Give a Pig a Pancake,” “If You Give a Moose a Muffin,” and “If You Take a Mouse to School” that also includes activities, recipes and music sheets for the silly songs on the accompanying CD. Fun!
