And the AGO tickets go to… Lisa! Congrats Lisa and thanks to everyone who entered!
I love books. My kids love books. We also love to share the books we’re crushing on to spread the love around. Here are our top picks from the past month.
I read this about a year ago and it changed my life. Last month, I returned for another flip-through of the section on parenting introverted children. I highly recommend this brilliant book if you or anyone you love has been labelled “shy”.
Stanley’s Christmas Adventure
The Tooth Fairy left this with a loonie under Alex’s pillow a couple of weeks ago. You’ve probably heard of Flat Stanley if you have a kid in grade-school. In this adventure, he’s back and he’s helping Sarah Claus save the day when her pops, Santa, gives up on Christmas because it’s become too materialistic. Alex and Jack love Stanley any way they can get him, Lola loves anything that makes her bros laugh, and I love the message. Win-win-win.
There Was A Cold Lady Who Swallowed Some Snow
The boys and I have a Scholastic agreement: they can choose one item that’s less than five bucks each month and we’ll split the bill. This was Jack’s latest pick, and since it cost a whopping $1.99, how could I say no? He’s a big fan of the Old Lady song and this entertaining winter spin-off has quickly become his fave. Might have a little something to do with the word they rhyme with ‘scarf’.
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
Lola loves this book, which was a gift from last year’s Eaton Centre Santa. I’m not crazy about it: it’s a weird/discriminating/mean story – and would it kill Santa to apologize?! Lola doesn’t care. She just likes pointing at Rudolph while exclaiming ‘doggie, doggie, doggie,’ and then she tries to tickle him. So, ya know, it’s all good.
