A Dog, A Groundhog, and A Cat

Whew! Today's post is running a little late, but it was kind of crazy last week. Emily had choir rehearsal and church on Wednesday evening, the band/choir gala on Thursday evening, and Speech Meet on Friday. That , together with the time change (sigh, groan) put me off of my game a little. Oh, and I almost forgot, I added 4000 words to the MG manuscript I'm working on.

So when I woke up this morning and realized I had not yet written my Monday book review, I snatched two books off the shelf and got busy. Since everyone loves dogs, groundhogs, and cats_okay maybe just dogs and cats; my selections contain those furry friends.

The first book, Me and My Cat, is a wonderful story of the true nature of cats. Cats are picky, obstinate, their own beings. Cats like things on their own terms. I know this is accurate because we own three cats, or do they own us? I also like this book because at the end there are directions from cat on how to treat your cat.

A Greyhound A Groundhog reminded me of a Dr. Seuss book. The same handful of words were arranged and rearranged on every page. It was a simple yet fun book that I think children from four to eight will enjoy.

So there you have it. two great books. Find them at your library or chose something totally different. Either way, be sure to read with or to your kiddos!

Well, that about wraps it up for this week. Join me next week for another exciting episode, same crazy time, same crazy channel. Also be sure to drop by Literacy Musings Mondays for more great blogs as well as my personal website Fun With Aileen where you will find more on reading, writing, and my very own chapter and picture books. And finally, you can find me on twitter @AileenWStewart if you want an extremely brief glimpse into my days.
