Book Preview: Surprised by Motherhood

Friday, March 28, 2014

I blog because I've loved to write for decades. I was writing stories with my friends as a young child.  Creative writing assignments were my favorite in school.  And that is why whenever I can I stop by Lisa-Jo's Five Minute Friday community on Fridays.  She shares a single word, and a ton of us write what comes to mind for five minutes.  That's it.  And it is fun!

Children's Corner: All the World

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

In my house we try to read for fun as much as we can.  And that means that I tend not to pay attention to the awards that books are given... I go off of what looks fun at the library, or recommendations from friends, family and teachers.  And let's be honest, some of the books that receive Children's literary awards just do not draw you in with the covers (most of the time, there are exceptions...).

I was pleasantly surprised while on a recent visit to the library to find a Caldecott medal honoree that grabbed at my attention, simply by the cover picture.  All the World by Liz Garton Scanlon boasts a calming cover with two kids on a well worn path looking at a gorgeous blue sky.  The book just screamed summer to me, and after this never-ending winter, I grabbed at the book.
