Fantastic. 1st read Still Alice, then this (the author's 2nd book). So, so good. A working mom/wife has a terrible accident & loses "Left". Has to recover, reevaluate. Engrossing.
Owl Moon (Yolen) - Caldecott Medal book about a little girl going owling with her father for the first time (owling is just bird-watching, but at night for owls). The illustrations are lovely, and the story is neat too. Great for kids who are interested in birds, a good winter book, and a book about an unusual hobby.
Need to put this on my reading list. One pinner said: "Best book ever for mothers to read for their sons....makes you think twice before you try talking to them....my son is 18 and i still use the info in it cause i believe it will always be useful!!!"
The Top 32 Popular Fiction Books for Book Clubs. Of the 32, I have read a total of 4. I already have 12 of the books on the list, but haven't read them yet. There are 2 books on the list that I tried to read, but couldn't get through. Finally, several of the remaining 14 books on this list are ones that I would like to read in the future. Overall, a great list!
Raising Boys (A Dad’s Advice for Moms) - a hilarious & helpful article! Must read if u have boys! - @Sarah Chintomby Chintomby Pankus
Activity to use with the book The Invisible String.
Another pinner said, "One of the most important books I've ever read! A lot of parents are afraid of these kinds of conversations. You should be more afraid of not having them.”
If you have a son, read this book. If you don't, pin now and read later :) (This makes me tear up just thinking about it...)
all you need is books and tea
Every mama of a boy must embrace this gift!
Great list of children's books about behavior - topics like learning how to be friends, how to disagree kindly, bullying, and tattling.
Raising little boys.
A great story about waiting your turn to speak and listening.
Great reference for moms and teachers.
Jodi Picoult - love her writing. I must get this book on my Kobo.
