I love looking at how much things have changed through the years... back when I worked in the restaurant, we had a couple that came in...  Both close to 100 and I loved chatting with them about how much things had changed since they were kids... It was a great way to get a different perspective and a great way to bond with the older generation.  The latest book for us?  Grandma, Aren't You Glad ... the World's Finally in Color Today! I will admit, I wasn't really eager to read it, as the title just did not really grab me.. But I am glad that I did!  This was a cute book that I am so excited that we have, as its a fun way to explain to Broxton how things used to be..  In this book, a couple kids climb up and get an…

You know you have a pretty good book on your hands when you leave it laying around and you spot your husband pick it up a few times to look at it ... and he NEVER picks up a book... EVER.   Well, that was just the case with Football Then to Wow from Sports Illustrated Kids! When I saw the title of this book, I figured it would make a welcome addition in our house of football fans!  Let's be honest here... with the boys coming up at Christmas, I knew I was going to need to find a bit of new "reading material" for their bathroom visits... Maybe a bit TMI for you - but just being honest!!!   In Football Then to Wow, we get a great look at history... and I have really enjoyed this hard covered book.  (I believe it i…

With Broxton being in Kindergarten now, we are reading every single night and having to log it into our reading journal.  We work on site words and I am SO EXCITED for the time when he can sit and read a book to me... It will be coming soon, I just know it!   We were sent the World of Reading Level Pre-1 for review and it was a new to me format.  In this set of books, we get 6 books :  Jake Hatches a Plan, X Marks the Croc!, The Case of the Missing Sparkleizer, Caught Blue Handed, Loud Louie and finally, Sophia Makes a Friend. We really enjoyed reading them and I really loved that it had a mix of the different Disney Junior Shows characters!
If you are unfamiliar with Pre-1 level books, let me explain.... Picture Reading * Wor…
