Anna Deskins authored the book The Adventures of Smitty, the book is expected to hit bookstores this winter.
This book is a wonderful collection of bedtime poems collected by Jane Yolen and Andrew Fusek Peters; the book is illustrated by G. Brian Karas.
My daughter enjoys books, and although she is 22 months old, she enjoyed listening to these (not all at once). I think she enjoys the rhymes, and the rhythm of my reading her poetry. She also loves the pictures throughout the book.
My daughter loves the illustration that appears on page 11 of the book, it’s a picture of a little girl looking out of her window at the moon, which is shining over a bridge– this is the poem on that page.
How strange that someone thinks it nice
to eat the moon – a giant slice.
I wonder if he finds it kind
to leave a bit of rind behind.
If you think the above is lovely, you and you little one will enjoy the collection of poems. Although the central theme is bedtime, the book also includes poems about bath time and brushing teeth.
Every once in a while you forget yourself. You forget who you are. Your likes. Your dislikes. The things that are good about your life. Being a mother is tough. At least for me it is. It’s the greatest joy I have ever experienced, but at the same time sometimes I lose myself. I honestly do. In some ways I forget who I am.
Kathy Light’s book Reasons Why You Rock came to my rescue. This book is all about discovering yourself, and the greatness within you. I believe we are all great in some way, the key is remembering this and knowing it. This book unlocks your greatness if, like sometimes for me, it’s locked away. You can use the excercises in the book to tap into things you do not think about on a daily basis, and to get on the path to discovering the power you hold, and doing wonderful things with it.
If you find that you are feeling not so great some days, which must happen to everyone at one time or another (it can’t be that I’m the only one) this book will help shine some light on your path. Give it a try!
This little book is a big inspiration. I read it to my 22 month old and she really enjoyed it. I think she especially enjoyed looking at the beautiful illustrations on every page, it helped that the book is very pink and girly. This is the story of a little pig with big dreams. This little pig tries her luck with all sorts of things (and experiences her share of failures) before she discovers what she’s good at. It’s a great story about never give up, and try and try again! There’s a great moral in this book for little ones, and I highly recommend it.
If you are looking for a book that will show you how to live fully; How to make the most of the hours in your day; How to find energy, even when you should be at your most drained. Get Energy! by Denise Austin is the book for you.
Being a mother is prety hectic. Being a working mother, is even more so. I found this book extremely insightful and would recommend it to anyone who is living a busy life, and who sometimes has to stop and catch their breath. Refreshing, an easy read, and the recommendations for carving out a workable schedule for your day are just wonderful.
I enjoyed the book, and will likely use it as a reference again and again.
We are currently working on potty training; actually we are not quite there. My 21 month old daughter dabbles and seems into it somedays and not into it at all others. I guess that’s how it goes. Not that I have any previous experience, as she is my first, but that’s what I hear.
Lily’s Potty is a great book to get my munchkin involved and interested in her potty. She loves lift the flap books, and since this book is illustrated with very pretty pages, it keeps her going back for more. The little girl Lily looks for her potty in all the unlikely places, and your little one gets to experience the search with her. Finally she finds her potty and decides to use it.
My daughter likes this book, and she enjoys looking through it. I’m hoping this and other books like it will get her going.
Sundays at Tiffany’s is a paperback by James Patterson, as well as a Lifetime movie (watch the trailer below).
