book was especially fun. It’s about a little girl and her monkey saying
“Monkey and me, Monkey and me, Monkey and me, we went to see, we went to
see…” and each time they see a different animal.
My Thoughts: This book was actually recommended to me by the Beanstack App. Which if you haven’t signed up for you really should. I use the app to log books for the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program for Amelia. Each week it sends me an email with book recommendations and this week’s was Monkey and Me.
Now, I don’t know if they intended it to be this way, but I
made it into a song, and after a few times Amelia was singing along which I
couldn’t even take. It was SO CUTE! After we read it a few times through, the
rest of the day I would hear her sing it, which it turn made me sing it too,
and became somewhat of a learning game. I would sing the phrase, then choose an
animal and ask her what noise that animal makes. SO MUCH FUN!
I think she would give it a solid 5 stars, I foresee us checking this book out
This week’s blog post is a little different. I have been sick and not really feeling like reading. Sleeping has been a priority for me in the last few days but I have some books that I am really excited about starting.
In December our staff participated in a murder mystery instead of having a traditional Christmas party. Everything was designed by our amazingly talented teen coordinator, Alyssa. She designed everything around a secret society whose goal is to protect and preserve literary works. Over several weeks we were emailed clues then asked to put everything together and reveal the murderer, why they were committing the crime and what the important document was all about. Let me tell you, it was HARD! I truly do not know how Miss Alyssa’s mind holds all of this.
After weeks of pouring over the clues I found out that I had won the grand prize! A $100 gift card to Watermark Books & Cafe! My next free weekend was spent browsing their shelves looking for just the right books. I picked out seven books and an enamel pin. Trust me it was not easy to decide but I did it.
List of books I bought:
So hopefully I will be feeling better by the weekend so I can start on some of these books. If you are interested in winning a gift card to Watermark Books then enter our For the Love of Reading challenge on Beanstack. It runs from February 2-14, 2020. You still have time to log books. The more you read the more chances you have to win!
