Book O’ The Day

We went to storytime again today. Every week they sing the same songs (Wheels on the Bus is Lydia’s fave!) and read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr and John Archambault complete with hand claps and leg pats. Lydia loves it so much you’d think we were at Disney World! It’s all in […]

Don’t Judge a Book By Its Movie

I don’t remember the first time I heard the Chronicles of Narnia. Mama used to read them to us on vacation. I loved riding in the car and listening to her read about Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy. As soon as I was old enough, I began to read them. I remember being in an […]

oh! ho! ho! the last.

But after I did it, it was so boring, even I wasn’t interested. (I’m not going to tell you the numbers, they aren’t the real winners!) So, […]

The Best Book in The Whole Wide World

I have a thing about kids’ Bible storybooks. I think they are stupid. They are usually full of half Bible stories and no real scripture. I don’t want a storybook that makes Noah’s story about a fun boat ride with animals–when really it’s a story of God’s judgment, protection and love! When we were children’s […]
