My Favorite Quotes:

A person's a PERSON no matter how small... -Dr. Seuss

I am a little pencil in the hand of God who is sending a love letter to the world. - Mother Teresa

The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to THINK, than WHAT to think- rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with the thoughts of other men. - James Beattie

What we are reading in the month of October

These are our favorite Halloween books:

1.  Where is Baby's Pumpkin? by Karen Katz- this is her lift the flap book series and geared toward little ones-6 months-2 or 3 years old.  My daughters both love lifting the flaps but the little one really got a kick out of it when she was around 12 months old!!

2.  Curious George Goes to a Costume Party by Margret and H.A. Rey- Very sweet story about George trying on various costumes- with a cute but "spooky" surprise.   Both my 2 and almost 4 year old love it!

3.  The Halloween Play by Felicia Bond- Cute story about a mouse and his special part in the school Halloween play- especially a favorite of my almost 4 year old!

4.  Ghosts in the House by Kazuno Kohara- I hadn't ever heard of this until this year when I purchased it at Barnes and Nobel.  It is a cute story about a little girl witch and what she does about the ghosts in her new house.  My older daughter- almost 4 years really loves it.... I don't think the 2 year old gets it as much. :)
5.  Say Boo! by Lynda Graham-Barber- Great story with a play on words.  Definitely builds on rhyming skills while being a particularly silly story that all little kids would love!!
5.  The BIGGEST Pumpkin Ever by: Steven Kroll.  I have loved this story ever since I was a little girl.  Such a cute story about 2 mice working hard to grow a very large pumpkin.  Both girls love this cute little mouse story!
6.  Wee Witches' Halloween by Jerry Smath- Cute little rhyming story of brand new witches on their first Halloween.  Both girls giggle over this book- very cute!

**I can never have enough HOLIDAY books!!  They are just TOO fun! Don't you agree??  :)

Are you in Plano too? I haven't been to the 75% off store yet, but I think my 4-year-old would love the Curious George book. I'm going to have to put some of these other books on my list as well.

Thanks for joining WMCIR and reminding me of The Biggest Pumpking Ever. Time to get our own Halloween books out, since the library batch proved to be "too scary" for my sensitive almost 4 year old.
