My Nephew's Gift From a Friend

When my nephew came to NYC for a visit, I was in charge of babysitting and all activities! What fun that was for me. So I called up all my friends with kids- and invited them all to play dates!
Mama B and Big Girl S, invited us to their apartment in Chelsea to play.

Upon on arrival, Big Girl S presented my nephew with a - WELCOME TO NYC- NICE TO MEET YOU- present. Of course he loved it and wanted to read it immediately with everyone, twice! My parents, who were along on the play date as well, enjoyed the read. bell hooks writes in a lyrical poetic rhythm that lulls us all into loving her words.

Be Boy Buzz is our family's new favorite!

Napping with a Good Book in Los Angeles

After spending a day at the beach with my friends Mama and Papa J and their three kids we went home for napping time. As all the kids went off to their own napping spot, I pulled out my gifts, Shades of People, The Lion and the Mouse, and a few non fiction books by Gail Gibbons: My Basketball Book and My Soccer Book. The twins and Toddler J- were in love with their new treasures.

Of course, as a house guest with Mama K and Big Girl C, I left 3 new series books with them. Chapter Book reading with young readers, who are in first grade like Big Girl C, is a wonderful way to work on build mental images, more sophisticated vocabulary and for thinking about longer and more complex stories. I gave them Whoopi Goldberg's new series- Sugar Plum Ballerinas, Nikki Grimes' new series- Dyamonde Daniel, and Amanda Stern's new series- Frankly Frannie.

Enjoy the reading! And lavish your friends in books!

The function of education, therefore, to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. But education that stops at efficiency may prove to be the greatest menace to society. Martin Luther King Jr.
