Fun with kids' books and check-in

While I'm waiting for the books I requested at the library from my TBR list to come in, I picked up some kids' books. I had fun reading them with my son (chosen to share). Got a few more, too, but we haven't read them yet.

Wizard And Wart At Sea by Janice Lee Smith
Wizard and Wart In Trouble by Janice Lee Smith
My Mom Is a Pirate by Jackie French

I also just read Into the Land of Unicorns by Bruce Coville, picked for myself. I'm going to have to snag the other books in the Unicorn Chronicles from the library. It was fun.

So I'm good for my new book for the week. :D

As for my other two goals...
*Writing 100 words every day: check. I haven't written a huge amount over that, but I did do it, about double every day.
*Exercise 10 minutes every day: check. I danced for half an hour on Sun and Tues, and did ten minutes of using my new stretch bands on Monday.

I'm going to thumbs up "My Mom is a Pirate" just on the title.

I haven't read the Wizard and Wart books, but I love the name!

What a great list of book titles! I can already tell that I'll be spending more time on you blog than I should. :-D

Kudos for keeping up with your goals!

The Wizard and Wart books are both I Can Read books level 2. And I picked out the Pirate book just because of the title, too. It was an easy chapter book featuring a boy named Cecil who wanted to go to school instead of being a pirate.

Welcome Eden. Glad to have a new reader. And thanks!

Those books sound great. I'm especially interested in reading Coville.

Good job on your goals.

Sometimes short and sweet is the way to go! Good for you for having all positives to report. Best of luck on your new week's goals, too.
Again...this must be the week for it. You've featured a few titles that younger boys might be interested in! Thanks.
