Loving It!
I have been inspired to post about the books we intend to read for school this week. We do not have a box or even a bag to keep our books in though because I just keep them on my desk. I never have many books out from the library at one time either. I have a horrible track record of not returning them on time! :O

I am a tad frustrated with the fact that I can only put 5 books on hold at a time with my library , but it works out okay. I just have 5 books to focus on until the following week when we can get our next 5 that were on hold. I do not have the patience to haul all of us into the library while I peruse for books to checkout anymore. It's suppose to be QUIET in the library right? Hehehehe...

Frog and Toad are Friends by Arnold Lobel
I grew up reading these books at my Grandma's house over the summer. She would always enroll me in her library's book program while I was there and would bring home stacks of books for me to read. Frog and Toad are like a classic to me now. HAHA

I Love You, Little One by Nancy Tafuri
The illustrations in this book (and others by this author) are just wonderful! I must admit that we really love this book fot it's beautiful illustrations. :) The story is very sweet too.

Emily's Birthday by Else Holmelund Minarik
I am not overly fond of Little Bear videos, but the books appear to be good. This is a cute story about Little Bear preparing a party for a friend. It's nice to see that there are some limits to having everything perfect sometimes. The book does point out that you need to think ahead when trying to plan an event like this, something my kiddos sometimes forget. Hehehe

Marshmellow by Clare Newberry
This story is adorable and oh so true about having a bunny in your home! Granted, not all buns will get along with the household cat like Oliver and Marshmellow do, but my bun and kitties interact quite a bit without incident. I would never recommend leaving a rabbit and cat unsupervised though. I love the cute little poems too.

Yertle the Turtle by Dr Seuss
Need anymore be said? This Dr Seuss story has some real meat to it is all, but it's just as zany and crazy as any other Seuss story. Fun read!

Most of these books were taken from someone else's reading list this week (The Happy Housewife). Hehehe... I read her reveiws and thought it would be fun to check them out too.

(Note: I am working on a post about my square foot garden... for some reason I talk about the plants, but do not have any pictures of the whole garden up. HAHA Silly me!)

I can't believe you can only have 5 books on hold! Love your list, the kids liked Marshmallow so much we checked it out again.

I know! I have been so stifled with getting books out of the library with this restriction. Ergh... Marshmellow is a very cute book. Wouldn't be surprised if I find it on one of my Amazon orders some day. Heheehe...
