I was also thrilled to hear her third book is being published and her second book is becoming a movie.
The trip to see her was worth it.
We are smack in the middle of fools spring here. I went out in shorts this week. With a hoodie, of course.
This list is fairly accurate. Heat waves in February and October are missing, kind of. I suppose they are included in spring of deception and 2nd summer, though.
I haven’t been writing about my daily adventures lately because I had been sick. I hadn’t been going anywhere, and sleeping most of the day isn’t a very interesting thing to write about.
I got out a few times, but didn’t write anything, because I was so worn out when I got home. I took photos and I remembered what I did. I’ll be writing about them soon, I hope. I have been getting comments and requests for the adventures.
Now that I’m feeling a lot better, we will see what happens.
The article linked above talks about literacy in children compared to the number of books in the household library. The fewer the books, the lower the literacy rates. I wonder if part of this has to do with the comfort level of the parents. If the parent is comfortable with books, and reads, there will be more books in the house. The parents being comfortable with books makes the child comfortable with books. Just my theory.
This book showed up on a list of children’s books for Black History Month. I recognized it from a book that had been recommended to me, Partners of the Heart, by Vivien Thomas.
This book would be great for older children. There a lot of information in it, and most likely wouldn’t keep a younger child’s attention. I enjoyed it, though, and look forward to reading the autobiography in the future.
I really enjoyed this little adventure. I have been working on reading the whole series of the author’s books, and Peter’s adventures are fun. I enjoy how Peter always gets distracted partway through whatever he’s working on.
I think that a child would enjoy this story and the illustrations, too.
The above linked article talks about how well Janet Evanovich has done with her series, and with her novel being turned into a movie. I love her books. They are quick and light-hearted mysteries with funny characters. I hadn’t realized how many of them there are until I read this article. I will have to pick up a few here and there soon.
