Another day off from school…Another day full of fun with our little lady!  My next new post will be October 24th.

Puff the Magic Dragon – Peter Yarrow and Lenny Lipton

Peter from Peter, Paul, and Mary has collaborated with Lenny Lipton to create a children’s book version of the beloved song Puff the Magic Dragon, and it is a winner.  The lyrics of the song have been brought to life with amazing full-page illustrations that delight readers of all ages.  This book also includes a four song CD recorded by Peter Yarrow.

This is the Day: Reclaim Your Dream, Ignite Your Passion, Live Your Purpose

This is the Day is an uplifting, easy to read book that is not only encouraging but also motivating.  Tim Tebow challenges his readers to take full advantage of each and every day using a variety of personal anecdotes as well as questions to ponder.  I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.

The Daily Question for You and Your Child: A 3-Year Spiritual Journey – WaterBrook

The Daily Question for You and Your Child is a nifty journal that allows you to capture your child’s thoughts and feelings about a variety of subjects over the course of a three year period.  This would be a delightful keepsake to use with a young child, but it would also be terrific to use with older children who may not be as chatty about their hopes and dreams as they were when they were younger.  The Daily Question would be a lovely gift for a family…Perhaps even your own!
