I thought this year I'd talk about essentials. And I know that EVERYONE has their own essentials. It's a given. Every family will have their priorities and that's a good thing. :)
One of the priorities in this household is books.
We LOVE books. :)
And since for the past two days I've been sorting through our book collection and oh gasp... putting some in my "to be sold or given away" bins I thought I'd talk of some of our favourites.
Leo the Lop. I have to tell you, when I saw this book, I almost didn't put it in the bin. I so remember the chuckles and storylines this book produced for us. The lad enjoyed this book so much. Poor Leo and those ears of his.
One: I am Canada. We are borrowing these from the library and THOROUGHLY enjoying them. They are written with boys in mind. They have another series called Canada diaries (I think) It is written for girls. We are trying one out as we wait for an interlibrary loan to bring us Graves of Ice. Excellent books on the history of Canada.
Second: Erin Hunter: Warriors. Ever since we discovered this series of the clan of cats my son has been TOTALLY hooked. One or two chapters a day depending on how busy we are in life we are pouring through these books. We've written poems based on them, played out story scenarios, drawn pictures and just really had a good time with these books. BE WARNED.. it's a lengthy series. :)
I almost forget to mention,A Nest for Celeste. OH my.. such a lovely book with line drawings, a great story of a boy with his mouse. A really nice book to read that captured my son's heart and imagination. :) It's the story about the boy who helped Audobon with his bird drawings.
Anyways, I hope I've introduced you to a few new books. If I had time I'd add a whole bunch more but these will do for now.
NOW.. below the banner is a list of some of the other TOS crew taking part in the blog hop. Do go on over and see what they are talking about as well won't you? Thanks a heap! Have a lovely book reading day.
