The Best Bookends on Amazon

Now, I’m not usually one to spend extravagant amounts of money on decorative items, like book ends. That’s why I own barely any decorative items for my own home, and the things I do own that are decorative are either seasonal, or barely thematic. I’m working on it, really. I just hate having little tchachkis around to break and/or collect dust. That being said, I recently did an Amazon search to try to find some bookends to keep my bookshelves looking interesting and spiffy! So, here’s what I found for that purpose!

She Persisted By Chelsea Clinton

I live in a feminist household. It is a house where everyone can and does do everything, whether it’s cooking, cleaning, math, technology, no one has a single limitation in this family. Sometimes it’s difficult to raise independent and strong willed kids, but the benefits far out weigh the laundry, broken toys, bruises, and sass when we see our kids growing up to be kind, strong, and stalwart defenders of themselves, and those around them. It is for this reason that we picked up “She Persisted” by Chelsea Clinton last year, and why we still use it as a bed time story this year.

Book Round Up: 5 Books (Kind of) About Spaghetti!

In honor of our recipe this week, I’ve put together a list of books you can read while eating SPAGHETTI. This list is a great reference for home school curriculums, book parties, themed days at libraries or schools, or just for adding some whimsy to your weekly spaghetti day! (I’m not the only one who has spaghetti day weekly, right?)

Book Craft: Page Magnets

While we enjoy relaxing days and cuddly mornings, my family is more of a get up and do something type of crowd. This craft is perfect for those “move a lot” days because it’s quick, easy, and useful! Feel free to be creative if you don’t want to destroy a book for the sake of art! Use a yard sale or dollar store find, print some images off the computer, or do what I did and get weird! After Valentine’s Day, I bought a few boxes of valentines in all different themes, just in case we wanted to use the stickers, or cards for craft time. That sure came in handy today! Instead of destroying our only copy of Cat in the Hat, I used one of the Valentine’s Day cards, and a couple of the stickers to achieve the same effect!

Cook With a Book: Strega Nona!

Every once in a while, a book resonates with you. Whether it’s full of life advice, it’s funny, the protagonist is relate-able, it’s full of magic, or something else, the book strikes you to the core. When a picture book does that, it’s easy to replace it’s profound effect with new memories and feelings as you grow. I always come back to the books I once loved. Guppy has read nearly every series I did when I was her age (And even a bit older! Over achiever…), and now I’m reading the same books I read to her to Goober. Hopefully, he loves them as much as I do.
