What My Children Are Reading


This week, I'm going to share with you two picture books featuring bunnies that we've been reading. They were both included in the package I won from HarperCollins Childrens Books in April.

Little White RabbitThe first book is Little White Rabbit by Kevin Henkes. This is an adorable new picture book about a little white rabbit, of course, who hops along through different scenes. As he hops into each new scene, he wonders what it would be like to be a different color, or a different size, or able to fly. When you turn the page, you find a two-page spread showing him as he imagines himself, as tall as the trees or as green as the grass. The story encourages imagination, and the illustrations are simple yet beautiful. We all really enjoyed this one.

The Runaway BunnyThe second book is an oldie that we hadn't really read before. It's The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown. This is about a another little bunny who says he's going to run away. His mother tells him she will run after him. Then as he says he will do different things to get away from her, such as becoming a fish and swimming down the river, his mother says she will find him by doing things like becoming a fisherman and catching him. It's a classic story of a mother's love and I'm glad we finally have this classic to enjoy.

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
