My trials and tribulations working on my blog for Bloggiesta including my permalink fiasco. Also, please join me at BlogFrog’s Random House Read and Play Community kicking off tomorrow.
Promise the Night covers Beryl’s childhood with inserts that document her aviation achievement. In real life, Beryl writes a memoir, West with the Night, that becomes a literary sensation, and goes on to Hollywood to consult on aviation for films. Ultimately, she ends up back in Nairobi, successfully training horses. She dies at the ages of 83.
This week’s cute kids caught in the act of reading come courtesy of There’s A Book, DesignTrackMind, My Library Tweets, and Nortina. Thank you! And if you have a picture of your child reading and would like to send it in, please email me at pragmaticmom.com (at) gmail (dot) com. I am posting the pics in the order that I receive them, so I will post all the picture eventually. And I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS need pics. If you send them to me, this means I don’t have to stalk my neighbor’s kids for photos. (Seriously, do I do that? Not yet, but maybe if I get desperate is the answer!)
This a great challenge by There’s a Book (a fabulous children’s book blog, by the way) that ANYONE can participate in. You don’t have to be a blogger to join! You can read to your child OR you can just read them yourself! Who’s in? I am! I am going to try to read 200 picture books and blog on them with my kids during the year.
This week we have some cuties reading by themselves, with their older brother, with friends on a play date (most unusual for these sporty boys to be reading and not whacking balls around), and yours truly reading with my youngest when he was Star of the Week. Enjoy!
Thank you for sending in photos GeekMom , Mama and the Boys, and There’s a Book. I can’t do this weekly Monday feature with your help, so please keep the photos coming.
