One of My Favorite Things...

One of my favorite things as a parent is to come around a corner in my home and see something like this:

Finding Mia "reading" books all by herself has been occurring more and more frequently and it makes me oh-so-very happy. 

In other news, please excuse my neglect of this blog. We are moving to a new home in a couple of weeks and I'm trying to focus on packing. Right now, we are reading a lot of picture books about moving. Do you have any favorites on this subject?

Author Spotlight : Oliver Jeffers

One of our favorite picture book authors is Oliver Jeffers. If you haven't read any of his books, look for them at your local library or bookstore immediately! 


Of all of his books, Lost and Found and its sequal, Up and Down, are my favorites. They are two of my favorite picture books of all-time. After those two, I think I like The Great Paper Caper best.
