Breakfast smoothie time.
This is what I’m reading this week. I’m interested in the process of writing, illustrating, and publishing a children’s book! Exciting! The funny thing is that the book in the center, the one that looks like a kids book, was the most useful to me. It’s pretty clear that I have a simple mind and I do better with pictures than a lot of words! I’m also looking into Maria Montessori and her methods to better understand the education Ara is getting. Especially after reading “What Teachers Really Want to Tell Parents” on CNN. I read the article after I checked out these books but it all seems to tie together.
This is what Ara is reading this week. Can you see her theme? That girl loves her some dinosaurs. The Bernstein Bears audio book is on her iPod sleeping playlist now. She also checked out a Bambi DVD but I haven’t decided if I think she should watch it yet. I remember being traumatized by that movie as a kid.
I’m also just finished listening to the first Harry Potter and now I’m on the Chamber of Secrets. I freaking love audio books for when I need to be doing something with my hands (dishes) or I’m so tired my eyes won’t stay open to read. I’ll probably finish the HP series and then start on a book my MIL lent me called 90 Minutes in Heaven (or close to that, the bookshelf is waaay over there).
