Things sure have been busy and they will only continue to be so! But I’m glad I can fill most of my time with things that I enjoy and gives my life purpose or supports my passions while still being able to hang out with others or get time for myself.
I read a lot of board books this week for a blog post for work. You can read about them here.
Children’s Books Read
-Zathura by Chris Van Allsburg [*- My Pick of the Week]- I was in a Chris Van Allsburg reading spree earlier in the year and I can’t believe I hadn’t read this one! I didn’t even realize this was a sequel to Jumanji! One page/illustration definitely had me laughing out loud! I’m definitely going to be recommending this title to our customers!
-Queen of the Falls by Chris Van Allsburg [*]- Fascinating retelling of an actual event.
-Cozy Classics: Moby Dick by Jack Wang and Holman Wang [*]
-Cozy Classics: Pride and Prejudice by Jack Wang and Holman Wang [*]
-BabyLit: Pride & Prejudice by Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver [*]
-BabyLit: Jane Eyre by Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver [*]
-BabyLit: Dracula by Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver [*]
-BabyLit: A Christmas Carol by Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver [*]
-BabyLit: Alice in Wonderland by Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver [*]
-BabyLit: Romeo & Juliet by Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver [*]
-Hello, Doctor by Michael Escoffier and Matthieu Maudet [*]- I love the humor in this book. Very reminiscent of Jon Klassen’s books and “Bear Despair” by Gaëtan Dorémus.

Instead of finishing up books I’ve already started, I decided to start “Building Stories” by Chris Ware and The End of Your Life Book Club” by Will Schwalbe because they were library holds that came at the same time! The first is a fascinating reading experience with all the different pieces. The latter has been an enjoyable read so far.
