100 Book Challenge - November 2011

Guess What!! I'm the new host of this challenge! I asked Leslie over at Home Grown Love if I could take this challenge over. She said "Yes". So here it is! For the time being just comment under my post with your link sharing what your family read over the month. Keep in mind that you never should feel pressured to reach 100 books if it doesn't feel natural in your home. If you only read 20 that is wonderful. I would love to see what you have read.

Zoe has been doing her own hair and she uses a Barbie book we use that was purchased at a local used book store. She can put her own hair in a bun, pony tail and she can also braid her own hair. I unpacked my old crimper that I use to use when I was in highschool so I used it on her and knew she'd get a kick out of it. I think it looks great. She loved it!

Small, But Convinient Library

We discovered that at one of the arenas that Austyn plays hockey at there is a small Library. Zoe took full advantage of it with a friend. It's likely the smallest library branch I've ever seen, but it sure was convinient for us.

Book Sharing Monday - Tess's Tree

Tess's Tree by Jess M. Brallier is a book about a little girl named Tess who grew up playing around a tree in her yard. It was much older than her and one day it had to be cut down.

Tess was very sad and she decided to hold a service for the tree. To her surprise many people showed up for the service. They all loved the tree as well and had stories to tell from their experiences with it.

It's a wonderful, book about sharing memories and the loss of something that touched many people's lives. The tree may have been taken away but they all became more connected in their loss.
