it’s a little book by lane smith
sparky by jenny offill
i like you by sandol stoddard warburg
miss lina’s ballerinas by grace maccarone
the miraculous journey of edward tulane by kate dicamillo
touch & feel farm by dwell studio

a few things of note about this weeks’ selections:

i had forgotten about i like you until i heard it read as part of a wedding ceremony i photographed earlier this month. we pulled it out again this week :)

i cried multiple times while reading edward tulane with lila. it is far and above my favourite novel we’ve read together. i can’t recommend it enough.

and oscar cannot get enough of grabbing at the touch & feel series right now.

have a great weekend :)

book club . one [finally]

18 Jul

for as long as i’ve been blogging, i’ve been getting requests to share some of the books on our shelves here in pinksugarland. i’ve always held back because the thought of reviewing a bunch of books is super daunting, and at the rate at which i write things (yes, there’s good reason that i typically only post photos), i would maybe get two posts done a year ;) so, i’ve decided i’ll just keep it simple and post a photo of five or so of the books that we are reading each week, and leave it at that! if any look interesting, you can click on the link and see if they are stories you might want to pick up or grab from your local library.

no rules — there may be picture books or chapter books or pop-up books (or all or none of the above), some weeks they might follow a theme, there may be an adult read tossed in once a while — other than i’ll attempt to share a handful every friday-ish. if you have requests for specific posts (books for toddler boys, funny books, non-fiction, etc), please let me know and i’ll try my best to make that happen; and even better, if you have recommendations for us, share those too!!

i’m so excited about this (and i hope you are too!). here we go :)

francis the little fox by veronique boisjoly
