September 12th Books

 Last week we had some good books.  We read Meet Kirsten , another of the American Girl books.  Stella really enjoys them, and I have to say that I do too.  I think she liked Kirsten because of her hair color, blonde, just like Stella's.  I have to admit that becoming a mother has made me much more emotional.  I cried, and laughed at myself for it.  Eh, at least Stella's learning empathy, for me if not the fictional characters we're reading about.

We read a neat book called Zin! Zin! Zin! A Violin It was a fun introduction to some instruments as well as what to call a group of musicians based on their number (soloist, duo, trio, etc).  Bruce liked the cats on each page the best, but Stella and I enjoyed the artistry of the pictures,.

Pumpkin Soup was probably Stella's favorite. At least it was the most read book of the week!  It was a cute tale of a duck, cat, and squirrel who lived happily together in the woods making pumpkin soup, until they didn't.  It's a neat story about friendship.

Next up is Acorn Magic , about a boy, his neighbor, and the "magic" of acorns which was actually more about learning to look and pay attention to your surroundings.  I liked it, it was a good story, but it was not the most loved story this week.

And finally, This Quiet Lady .  Neither Stella nor I cared much about this book.  It was a simple book, cute.  But it was boring.  A little girl showing pictures of her mother.  It just felt... anti-climactic.  It wasn't bad, just not for us.  And usually I love stories like that!
