The painting is done, my hubby is home, but I've still been busy. I even managed to get to the library and set up the new children's display wishing everyone a great Valentine's Day. I also checked out the section of newly purchased books and was excited to see two books by illustrator friends of mine.
Since Valentine's Day is almost upon us, I decided the first book I would review would be a Valentine book. So what did I choose, you ask? Why, Kylie Jean Valentine Queen, of course. A few years ago I read Kylie Jean Rodeo Queen by Marci Peschke and I enjoyed it very much. So, it is no surprise that I love her latest Kylie Jean offering. Kylie Jean's dream is to someday be a beauty queen and she even has the wave down pat. But until that day arrives, she contents herself with being a Valentine queen.
The second book I chose to review was influenced by the lovely piles of snow which lines every driveway in my neighborhood, and by the tracks I see in the fresh snow that adorns my front yard. It was called Who's Been Here? A Tale In Tracks. Two children go on a journey through the snow with their dog who finds a multitude of different tracks of passing animals. One set of tracks leads to an especially interesting critter.
Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Join me next week for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel. And feel free to drop by my personal website, Fun With Aileen, any day of the week for even more on reading, writing, my very own early grade chapter book, Fern Valley, the sequel, Return To Fern Valley, and the soon to be released Cooking In Fern Valley (fall 2015)! I'm also on twitter @AileenWStewart if you want an extremely brief glimpse into my days.
