Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris

Hello readers! I have been silent for the above reason! I have spent the last month or two re-reading the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris and learning how to crochet. I’ve made 2 scarves and 3 mittens (all for my kids). I still need to make at least one more mitten, and then I may try my hand at some warm winter socks.

I have also read a ton of books to my 3 littles, but that can be saved for another post (assuming I make time to write more, hahaha).

Now on to the review:

The Anmorian Legends by D.N. Pillay

How the Queen Found the Perfect Cup of Tea by Kate Hosford

This is a really fantastic picture book. The art is beautiful and expressive. I love seeing exactly what the queen is thinking and feeling. This book is hilarious and has so many little details to laugh about.

We read this as part of our UK study as recommended by our Torchlight Kindergarten curriculum. I loved it, and so did my kids.

How the Queen Found the Perfect Cup of Tea by Kate Hosford. Illustrated by Gabi Swiatkowska.

It is funny that she is yelling at James. It is funny that the cats are in the hot air balloon. It is funny that James is running after her and his shoe fell off. It is funny how the boy looks and is missing a tooth. It is funny that James is off the ground when the Queen is dancing. Her hair is so funny.
