Friday Faves: The Extraordinary Gardener by Sam Boughton

Happy Friday! Today I want to share with you The Extraordinary Gardener. It is a gentle, sweet book both written and uniquely illustrated by Sam Boughton. This story is about a boy named Joe, who lives in a world of gray. Joe loves to go into his imaginary world filled with vivid color, plants and unique animals. Joe gets an idea and decides to plant a seed, water and care for it. One day, it blooms and changes the world he lives in. My kids and I really enjoyed this story. I hope you give it a chance and it finds it’s way into your home. I’m sure you’ll like it! Enjoy!

Wordy Birdy Meets Mr. Cougarpants

Hi everyone and happy Friday!!!!! On this beautiful Friday I’m here to rave about Tammi Sauer’s second book revolving around the ever adorable and extremely chatty Wordy Birdy. My kids LOVE this book, as do I! In this book, Wordy Birdy and her friends are going on a camping trip. She’s got lots to say during their adventure, especially when they meet up with Mr. Cougarpants. It’s delightful and everytime I say “Mr. Cougarpants” my kids can’t help but crack up. I just love it. Ok, now go read some books and enjoy your three day weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! We made it! (Insert celebration dance here!) I have a super cute book to share with you today. Ally-Saurus and the Very Bossy Monster by Richard Torrey is a book about Ally (who refers to her self as Ally-saurus) and her friends who have a great time playing in their shared world of make believe. That is, until Maddie comes along and starts telling everyone the “new rules” she has just made up. It’s a delightful story that gently teaches kids about bossiness and the need to respect each other and our differences. A great message, with cute and unique illustrations makes this book my pick for the week. Enjoy!
