Currently we've been reading Feeling Thankful by Shelley Rotner since it is Thanksgiving time and we've been talking about giving thanks to the Lord with our Memory Verse (Psalm 136:1). J loves the pictures of real children and real things that correlate with the text. I add my own twist at the end which is the copyright page but if a page has words, J expects you to read something. I close with "And I'm Thankful for God who made the whole world!" H has sat through this book, I think, because of the great photographs.
At our church library, J chose 9 Fruits Alive by Mindy Macdonald. This is our second time checking this book out. The first time, I chose it to go with our Memory verse which was Galatians 5:22-23. J has enjoyed the rhyming rhythm and the simple definitions of each Fruit of the Spirit.
My recommendation is a book for stay at home moms or moms who are transitioning to staying home. Who Got Peanut Butter on My Daily Planner by Cindy Sigler Dagnan is a great book that I have read several times. I love this book because it has practical tips for organizing and caring for my family and keeps a sense of humor about serious topics. She also addresses ways to overcome perfectionism and tips to keep your priorities in focus. And a bonus at the end...recipes!
I love to read and love hearing about a new book. If you have a favorite book, feel free to let me know in the comments!
