Great Family Summer Reading!

In between our art projects,
driving the golf cart
and swimming,
we are having fun reading this book!

by Kate DiCamillo
is a must read for every child.

This delightful children's book has won the following awards:

Newberry Honor Book
A New York Times Bestseller
ALA Notable Children's Book
Center for Children's Books Blue Ribbon
New York Public Libary 100 Books for Reading and Sharing
A Parents' Choice Gold Award Winner
Publisher's Weekly Best Book of theYear
School Library Journal Best Book of the Year
A Smithsonian Best Book

So imagine my delight when I found
at Sam's Club for only $4.88!

We spend some excellent, quality time reading each day.
We make it a fun, family activity
by reading aloud to each other!
I must admit that Grande and I are enjoying it
as much as Madisyn!

I am so proud of her for being a chip off
the old blocks!

I was thinking about you guys today and how much fun you must be having with Madi! It's so special for them to have that one on one time. I was just telling Riley today that maybe next week just her and I could do something together. I miss those alone times with her!

Take care, Sue
