The Lorax ~ Dr. Seuss


The LoraxThe Lorax by Dr. Seuss

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Every time I read this book I cannot help but marvel at how well the movie portrayed the very essence found between the pages. I cry every time I watch the movie and I cry when I read the book. I like to think that the rhyming words are soothing to my son’s ears and that they lull him into a calmness that readies him for sleep.

Harold and the Purple Crayon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I was super excited to discover that my son absolutely loves this book! I kind of expected him not to like it because it is so simple, but as soon as I was done he shouted “Again, Mom!” Silly kid makes me melt. And there I was thinking that the kid wasn’t paying attention! What I personally love about this book is the the beautiful imagination it must have taken to come up with it. It’s not hard to see how this book has remained popular for so long.

Children’s Book Week


10256499_10154169391275094_1680627886525252558_nIt’s been a disgracefully busy this week and unfortunately when that happens my poor Noah bears the brunt of all my neglect. Of course he is gloriously understanding and is quite happy to just steal hugs and kisses when he can, never bemoaning his lack of attention. I heard today that this week is Children’s Book Week. Of course, the source of this information was a random post on Facebook so it could be pure rubbish. I like the idea of a week dedicated to children’s book though so I decided to curl up with my little man this evening and have a bit of marathon reading session. We got through about six books before the little man decided that he was exhausted and therefore done humouring me. We’ll have to get through the others tomorrow night I guess…

Happy Harry Day!


Photo on 2014-05-02 at 9.28 PM #2Today is Harry Potter Day! One day when I am more interesting I shall celebrate these arbitrary holidays with cosplay. I think I’d make a good professor Trelawney actually. Unfortunately today was spent doing big girl work so there were no cloaks or wands. This evening though, I think I should do a tiny bit of celebrating by drinking tea and diving into my favourite of all the Harry Potters: The Order of the Phoenix. Why is it my favourite? Because of Fred and George. Although…. I must admit, I do find Fred and George scenes a little harder to read now that I know Fred’s fate. But, I’ll try not to think of it and just have a good time reading about them anyway. It seems like a good way to break my accidental reading fast.
