Must deviate for a moment. My oldest three kids took off to LLYC for the “best two weeks” so Little Reader and I planned camp romps and fun outdoor activities. But with almost zero camp books at the library, we weren’t able to bring books into this experience ;-( So I’m putting this on hold until we can find some. But we are getting big sister’s camp stories by mail, and these in it self compiled would make a great book. I feel the calling to move my next story into this realm. So today I’m hitting the road with a camp story.
It has been a totally random romp the past two weeks, just pulling titles in no particular order. Thinking of moving into a cooking theme next week, but must first must see what yummy reads the library has! (I’m always open to book suggestions!) And with the kids coming home, happily Mad Hungry dinners will go back up on the chalk board next week.
Also in less than a month the new “blue” should be up and running, thanks to Pure Imagination Designs. Thinking of an “Into the Wild Blue” motif here! "If you want blue all around you, then just color it blue, do you want a blue marker?" - Little Reader
A few Cool Summer Pics
By William, JoyceThis great read is based from the Disney movie, Meet the Robinsons. It’s not the favorite just because we are also a crazy Robinson Family, well maybe a little! So spend the day with the Robinson’s and see how mundane tasks become adventures, from dancing frogs to shooting meatballs. The plots differ from the book and movie, but they parallel making this a Blue Rated Read.

What A Masterpiece!
By Donaldson, Julia
Stickman is no ordinary stick, in fact he’s a family man with three stick children and a stick lady love. While content living in his tree house, one day he’s mistaken for a stick and ends up moving further and further from home. A cute story, but thrown off with why Santa was put in to save the day. - Not a holiday book!
The Lonesome Puppy
, Yoshitomo Nara
One gigantic dog is not seen by anyone, until one day a little girl comes along. A message of friendship with great illustrations here. I found the text a little chunky, but Little Reader loved this one. “He’s big like Clifford!” We loved Clifford the Dog, but wonder if younger kids even know this adorable pup. Seems like Dora The Explorer has taken over everything, and will say that she is not welcome in our home.
