It has been an exciting couple of weeks. We have had a few readings of our book ‘Farmer Pete has Stinky Feet’ at schools and at our local library. The kids have been amazing and so much fun throughout the process. They have asked a ton of adorable questions and made me glow with the cutest and sweetest comments. We set up a craft table for the kids at the reading event at the library. I also made a couple of coloring pages taken from my book. They all dove in and enjoyed both the craft and the coloring pages. I wanted to share those coloring pages with all of you. The kiddos really got a kick out of these. I hope that you do too.

We love to read books anywhere, anytime…
but our favorite books are the ones that rhyme.
Here’s a collection, some silly, some sweet…
some about giraffes, french toast, and even stinky feet.
Hi everybody. I hope that everyone is having a fun-filled summer. We are not here today to share our usual arts or crafts project, instead, we have some exciting news. We are thrilled to announce that we have just published our first children’s book, ‘Farmer Pete Has Stinky Feet’. It is sweet and silly and a little bit “pun”ny. We are absolutely over the moon about it and hope that you will check it out.

If you have a reader and crafter at home, these mixed media bookmarks are a great idea.
I have been reading to my little girl since the day that she was born. Reading is an important part of my life and I wanted to make sure that it was the same for my daughter. I tried teaching her to read as soon as I thought that she was ready. She loved books, but it was no easy feat. She was resistant and would get frustrated easily. This year, she started Kindergarten and it became even more important for us to work on her reading together. Still, she did not like working with mommy and then we were introduced to Reading Eggs.
Yesterday, my daughter and I made mixed media truffula trees inspired by one of our favorite Dr. Seuss books, ‘The Lorax’. We kept the Lorax love going with one more craft. The Lorax is known for his short stature, his love of the environment and that signature mustache. We thought that a mustache prop would be a ton of fun.
My daughter loves Dr. Seuss. Whenever we go to the library, she always looks through his books for one that we haven’t read in a while or for an old favorite. The Lorax is one of those favorites. It is a favorite of mine as well.

We have been on a huge mixed media kick lately and I thought that the truffula trees from ‘The Lorax’ would make a beautiful project for us to do together.
I may sound like a biased mom, probably because I am one, but I think that my 4 year old is an amazing little artist in the making.
Every Wednesday, my daughter and I have a wonderful routine of going to the library together. We will spend an hour or sometimes two exploring the books and looking for new favorites.
As you know, we love to read. We regularly visit the library & just love to find new books to read.

On our last visit to the library, we found a book that we chose for its funny name. The title ‘Yucky Worms’ attracted my daughter. It got quite a chuckle.
