One Book, Every Young Child

Oh, hello. How are you? Me? I'm hopped up on cold meds and trying not to think about the beautiful weather our sick family is missing while we schlump around inside.

The babies and I have been reading lots of books, including PA's One Book: Every Young Child 2009: If You Were a Penguin. It's a really cute story for little ones, with additional information about penguins in the back for older kids.

I like all of the books that have been chosen for this program, some of which I've mentioned before. The how-things-grow book from last year, Up, Down, and Around, is one we read a lot, although apparently I was too busy dealing with a newborn to write about it.

So, there are your reading recommendations for the day. I'm off to make some tea with honey and collapse on the couch.


  1. Oh no! I hope you feel better soon. Nasty cold season.

  2. Feel better!

    If your kids like penguins, they will love the book "Lost and Found" about a boy finding a penguin at his door. It's a good story book for little ones, and so sweet.

  3. I have a cold again too! No fun! But I did go outside with Zachariah for a little bit today. I'm glad I feel well enough to do that. It's so lovely out.

  4. Thanks, Nicole! We'll have to check that one out.
