Well, it's raining here today, actually pouring!! So, we're reading, lots o' books :)
We had a hankering for Jim Arnosky, love his DVD of books read on Reading Rainbow, check your library for it if you can, there's a great "how-to-draw" a porcupine at the end by the author himself, well worth watching all the way through :) Besides the ones listed here, we've got a whole stack of his nature drawing books. Also planned are some great Jean Craighead George books for later this week :)
Raccoons and Ripe Corn by Jim Arnosky
Come Out Muskrats by Jim Arnosky
Every Autumn Comes the Bear by Jim Arnosky
Voyage to the Bunny Planet by Rosemary Wells :: This one is hysterical and whimsical all at the same time. Once read you will never forget the repeated lyric:
"Far beyond the moon and stars, Twenty light-years south of Mars, Spins the Bunny Planet, and the Bunny Queen is Janet."
Bunny Mail by Rosemary Wells :: Flaps are always fun in a picture book, no matter how old you are :)
Max & Ruby's Bedtime Book by Rosemary Wells :: Bedtime stories with Grandma, what could be better!
McDuff Moves In by Rosemary Wells :: It only took one reading for us to fall in love with sweet little McDuff.
Owl Moon by Jan Yolen (Classic picture book, a must read any time, but especially in Autumn or Winter)
Matthias is thick into The Yearling.
Seamus finished A Lion to Guard Us today!
I finished Anne's House of Dreams on my Kindle over the weekend and am currently reading The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton. I'm just getting ready to start Waking Rose before it's due back from inter-library loan!!
Hope you're snuggled up tight somewhere having a lovely reading time with your sweeties this week! Happy Monday friends :)
