Interesting Tidbits on the Web:



I have had to slow down a bit on my reading, I have been doing so much reading for the Month of RI Authors, which I hope you really enjoyed, and then the Dewey's Readathon.  Household chores and other plans have gotten shoved out of the way.  So I better get those done before I get too carried away with my reading again.

Anyway,  today kicks off another fun event! It is Children's Book Week!! I apologize in advance for the flood of posts that are going to be filling your feed this week. I really love encouraging young readers and I have a wide variety of books for every taste.  Each day this week I will post a beginning reader book in the morning, a first chapter book or middle grade book mid day and then a bedtime story in the evening.  The only exception will be Saturday which is Free Comic Book Day and I will have 3 different comic books that are appropriate for younger and middle grade readers.  I have picked some of the best books I could come up with to share with all of you this week.  So I hope you will check them out and hopefully find something for that young reader in your life! 


  1. I look forward to your children book recommendations. I wish I had a kid so I read them more.

    1. I know that you enjoy them yourself too, but maybe you can always borrow someone else's child for a couple of hours ;)
