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!
