March has been a very bitter month for us, when it comes to weather.
This means that we spent a lot of time indoors curled up with a good book and we went back to the library this month due to the height of flu season.
Here were our choices for the March bookbag.
“If You Give a Moose a Muffin” by Laura Numeroff
Just like the famous “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” this story talks about what happens when you give a moose a muffin. As you can image the fun that ensues as the book escaltes from a simple muffin to a sweater and to a puppet show.
“What Pet Should I Get” by Dr. Seuss
Recently this new Dr. Seuss book was discovered years after the author’s death. Just like all of his other books it spent a lot of time on the bestsellers list. What I really like about the book is that there is section in the back from the publisher about the importance of going to shelters to pick out your new pet instead of going to a pet store like the book states. (Please excuse the blurry photo. We were too excited.)
“Easter Surprise” by Catherine Stock
This book is a sweet story that gets kids in the mood for Easter. The story is about two siblings who goes on a trip to a lake house during Easter. The beautiful watercolors enhance the story and give it a really sweet feeling. This is just one of many Stock’s holiday books.
“Oh No, Little Dragon” by Jim Averbeck
This is a sweet story about a little dragon who loses his spark and is afraid that his Mommy won’t love him anymore and he tries so hard to get his spark back by making himself warm. It is only when he learns that his mommy will always love him no matter what that brings the spark back. Sweet story with cute and fun illustrations.
“Elephants Cannot Dance” by Mo Williams
If you couldn’t already tell by the picture this was our favorite book. Lily has always been a fan of the Elephant and Piggy books and she really liked this one. It tells the story of Elephant who has no confidence about dancing. However, he learns to accept himself as he is and celebrate his own unique qualities.
For me, I haven’t done much reading this month. Between work, the blog and deciding to make Lily’s Easter dress I have had a full plate.
But, I have enjoyed reading these two books that came with my subscription to Calm Box that was a Valentine’s Day gift from the hubby.
Each book is full of either inspiration or tips on how to lead a less stressful life.
The beautiful illustrations and quick relaxation tips make for a nice read right before bed to help you remember what is important in life.
