At the end of May, Emily, my sister, and I are planning to visit Niagara Falls. It's been many years since I've been there and Emily has never been there, so it should prove exciting. We have plans to view the falls, visit the aquarium, and check out what Goat Island has to offer. I should probably go see what reading material my library has on the falls.
We also spent some quality time as a family playing Board games and Emily only had a slight case of electronic device withdrawal.
The second book, Hooked, had me hooked. A book about a boy who loves fishing and wishes his dad loved fishing too has the most beautiful of endings. While definitely about fishing, the underlying theme of spending quality time together shines through superbly. I give this book a five out of five stars!
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 if you want an extremely brief glimpse into my days.
