Growing up Grimm


I love watching my children grow through each stage of their life, and each year I think, wow, this is the best age!

Well, today, I'm thinking now is the best, simply because of things we're able to share together. I started reading book 1 of "The Sisters Grimm" to them and what a blast! I'd read the book before on my own, but it's such a treat to read to my kids. The book appeals to both of them on different levels, they both get what's happening and why, and the story is fun so they laugh a lot. There's enough action to keep my son interested, but it isn't too violent for my six-year-old.

This morning we're off to play piano at the retirement home. This afternoon we might go to the beach or the lake. And tonight we'll be snuggling up to read more about Daphne and Sabrina Grimm and their adventures in Ferryport Landing.

Happy weekend to you all!

Sounds awesome. Another book for me to look into and add to the towering, teetering TBR stack.

Always sounds like a fun day. Hope it's a blast.

That's so fun! I can't wait to read something aside from Goodnight Moon to the kids. I really want to instill a love of reading in my kids and the best way to do that is through good books, right? It will be so fun to share new books with them when they're a little bit older.

So I'll take this as a recommendation! I have yet to read this.

OK, and I never mention my verification words, but this one was

"Slught"

Something funny about that :)
