No matter if you have a child or not you will be singing along with Pharrell and helping your kids find their next adventure. It is catchy and it has kids picking up books.
“B is for book” is the new song for by Pharrell Williams. Sing along with him, Elmo and Cookie Monster. The adorable upbeat song has kids singing, reading books, using their imagination. A book can take you anywhere or make you anything.
The Grammy winning songwriter, artist and producer teach Elmo and Cookie Monster the importance of reading through music. They travel around the world seeing pyramids, Egypt, and thrones. Cookie Monster’s mind is BLOWN, all from reading books. I love it. You will be singing this song all day. I still love Sesame Street so much.
Facebook is great for reminding us of our memories. It pops up pictures we’ve shared or quotes we’ve highlighted throughout our years while sharing our life publicly. If you are anything like me you are mindful of what you type in the status bar. Obviously if Facebook is keeping a a record to remind us of all those cute pictures we share, someone, somewhere has a record of that status we posted 2 years ago that we might care to forget. I enjoy looking back on my memories. For the most part I can remember exactly how I was feeling in the moment I posted my status. Today Facebook reminded of a blog post I wrote 6 years ago to date on my old blog. I decided to share my thoughts from then here unedited. Continue reading
When I found out about the summer reading program at our public library last week, I couldn’t wait to share the news with my daughter. We love to read in my family. I read to both my babies while I was pregnant. My daughter started reading when she was 4 years old and continues her love for books now. I am working to pass the love for books on to my son. I think reading to kids early helps them enjoy the idea of reading. I love the fact that she prefers to have a good old fashion book her hand instead of E-book.
Earlier this week I took the kiddos to our local library to sign up for Rahm’s Readers Summer Learning Challenge. The summer reading challenge is giving away 12 books to each child that is registered aged 0-13. It is open to all Chicago residents that are interested. Sign up began on Monday, June 20th and will continue through September 1. However the free books are available while supplies last. Continue reading
