Another year older…

Yesterday was my birthday and a large amount of it was centered around books! There is a library in our county that is housed in one of those huge, old victorian homes with stained glassed windows with a classic hardwood interior. The trip was totally worth it. The library was beautiful and the walls were full of all kinds of historical photographs and local artwork. I also left with a stack of books in my arms.

Books I read with my kids last week

Press Start! Game Over, Super Rabbit Boy! by Thomas Flintham My kids love video games and were immediately attracted to the graphics of this chapter book. I personally thought it strange to read a video game plot within a book plot. Still, the story is set up well and hooks you into a defeat-the-tyrant adventure plot with ease. In the process, there is a nice character building illustration of grit and pushing through failure. I’m super happy to see that this is a series (currently seven books long) and hope to check out other volumes over the summer to encourage …
