Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you’re having a family-filled (and food-filled) day! I have a lot to be thankful for this year, and at the top of the list is this little munchkin.   Back when I was a librarian, one of my favorite seasonal activities was writing a simple poem based on a template I… Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving!

TBT: Christmas Eve Traditions

I have such fond memories of reading picture books as the days led up to Christmas (even when I was much too “old” for picture books), but Christmas Eve was always special.  My parents would read our two favorite books every single Christmas Eve: The Little Golden Book Story of Christmas and The Berenstain Bears’ Christmas.… Continue reading TBT: Christmas Eve Traditions
