We couldn't salvage it.
So we shaved it all off.
Oh well.
They grow back anyway, right?

Family :: This House Needs A Mouse 0 comments

We are a family of readers.  We are NOT a family of mice lovers.  We have no pets.  We certainly don't have any mice.

BUT...maybe we ought to have one, because we DO have a lot of crumbs.  Maybe this house needs a mouse, after all...

You see, we've recently acquired an interesting book titled, This House Needs A Mouse.  It's not your ordinary, one-dimensional tale of a mouse.  It gives a whole new meaning to the term "of mice and men" and the house they tend to share.

This book was a fun read for all three of my kids, ages 3, 5, and 10.  Each one of them found something to like in the book.

10 yr. old: "I would recommend the book to my friends because I think it's got a great plot. Also, the illustration is really interesting - the way the artist drew it, it's like really good sketching, and there's always something funny going on. The words are good for learning too - they repeat things and teaches even new words. It's a very interesting story about a daring mouse who doesn't give up on his passion!"

5 yr. old: "The story's funny. I like how he cleans up all the crumbs! And look, he just keeps going!"

3 yr. old: "I like the mouse and the pictures." (And then he goes through the pages, pointing to all the pictures he likes.)

These days, it's hard to find a book that engages readers of all ages.  So I consider this particular book a gem among the sea of mediocre books available today.

DO find out more about "This House Needs A Mouse"!  It's available now on the book's website, Amazon (hardcover), Amazon (Kindle Edition)Barnes and Noble, and Big Tent Books."

Engaging, filled with dynamic illustrations, alliteration, vocabulary that lends itself to a variety of learning activities, and an interesting plot to round it out - I can definitely say that this is a great book to put under the Christmas tree this year!

I received a copy of the book to review, but all opinions are 100% my own (or the kids')!

Musings :: A 90's Christmas 0 comments

For me, the 90's were filled with music.  I was a teenager, after all, and music was a must for pretty much every part of my life.

There were motivational sports music, pining for my crush music, party music, and long bus rides music - to name a few.

But a favorite of mine was (and always has been) Christmas music.

Remember these guys?

BOYS II MEN!!!  They were one of my favorite artists back then!  I love how their voices harmonized.  And they sang a capella too - which proved even more that they had talent.

So today, I share with you 3 of their Christmas songs - my favorites:  Silent Night, Let It Snow, and Share the Love.
