A perfect book for a child named Clover Magnolia. And Zoccoli’s for lunch.
At Book Shop Santa Cruz we bought this book (Chrysanthemum) as well as “Jenny Goes to Sea” by Esther Averill. Emma and I have been reading the other Jenny Linsky books and were so happy to read a chapter of this one every night of our stay in Santa Cruz. It is all about travel and being at sea which made it well matched for our trip.
When Clover and I watched Malala’s acceptance speech for the Nobel Peace Prize I hoped it would illustrate to Clover how lucky she is, how fortunate our family is. Now as I read Malala’s Magic Pencil to her I realize I have created an activist for positive change in my child. I could not have chosen a better role model for bravery.
Our home library is full of readers. This week Emma began to sound out words in an easy reader and Hop on Pop. It is such an exciting time!
We have been focusing on winter and Christmas lately in our home schooling. It is the coldest and longest night of the year but I don’t think any amount of wishful thinking will bring us snow (which is definitely for the best since our ceiling is still torn up in the bedroom!). Talking about driving a Gig car up into the hills to look for some snow for the afternoon some day soon.
Learning about why snow is white in Mystery Science.
Watching the Snowy Day.
Reading White Snow, Bright Snow.
Listening to Lullatone’s album Winter Whispers on repeat.
