“There is no chiropractic treatment, no hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel, that will leave you empty of bad thoughts, than this homely ceremony of making bread.” -M.F.K. Fisher #kidsbooks#breadlove
A week from today I am going to have a 10 year old!!! While I sit over here and process that craziness, I am going to let my book loving, always reading, lover of stories almost 10 year old take over this account and post her favorite books. .
I will add a little "mom note" at the end of each, but for the most part, these will be her words...
" 'The Bad Beginning' by Lemony Snicket (not the author's real name but his writing alias) is the perfect mixture of dark and hilarious. The author did a very good job of creating a interesting, dark, and funny story. Highly recommended. It is one of 13 books in this series. You should read them all...very good. Good for people 8 to 108. Highly recommend it." .
MOM NOTE: This is hands-down my daughter's favorite book series, but, while the writing is wonderfully quirky, it can be very dark as she mentioned so I would not recommend this series for the sensitive child. My daughter did read this series at 8, but I would mostly recommend this book more for 10 or 11 and up, even as a read-aloud, but obviously, it depends on the kid because it was perfect for my daughter at 8. If you end up loving these books, the Netflix series based on these books is extremely well done if you can get past the fact that Doogie Howser plays the villain. .

HAPPY PRESIDENTS’ DAY
It’s a beautiful day for a stroll to the bookshop! We are open until 6:00pm today!
Monster Blood is an icon of the Goosebumps series, and not without reason. Monster Blood is a very unique idea for a Goosebumps villain, and has the potential for a great story. Unfortunately, while I do find the idea of Monster Blood itself great, I can’t say that this book matches that idea’s potential. The story is fine throughout the first half, apart from a very whiny protagonist in Evan, but the main problem with this book is that it falls apart in the third act. While the Monster Blood substance would have worked just fine without an explanation, the ending of this book sees many revelations that seem like they belong in a separate book entirely. New ideas are presented that just don’t mesh with the rest of the story. I know I am in the minority holding this book rather low, so feel free to voice your own opinions in the comments!
One of my favorite things about Instagram is getting to share big moments and news with you special people! In this case, it’s is the drop of ‘Oh, The Places You’ve Been’ by @itsbeneverard and @maryandcrew I met Mary here on IG through @mycah_hunter a few months ago (don’t you love a good intro??) and she has been the source of my west coast living inspiration ever since. She and her husband just coauthored their first children’s book and it’s darling! It’s all about a young girl named Harper who finds a penny and learns about its history... all the places it’s been. It’s a fun adventure that evokes curiosity and whimsy. You can pick it up at Target or prime it on Amazon. Huge congrats, Everards!! Do you know a kiddo who would love this? 💙
Excited about our two mission-minded children’s being done! — they’re available at the moment (today), but we’re traveling overseas on Wednesday, so our order page will be down for 3 weeks. Order today to have your books shipped out tomorrow. (See my IGTV for details) #wholeworldneedsjesus#thefishlessfisherman#kidsbooks
After a long commute, one of my favourite things to be able to do is sit down and read with the kids. Our youngest turned 2 at the weekend and got all these books from Kes Gray and @_jimfield - she loves them! Colourful, funny and some real tongue twisters to make us look silly. @hachettebooks@hachettekids
Μια βροχερή Κυριακή, ο Όντι και η Ρίκι κουβαλούν ένα νόστιμο πρωινό και μια κουβερτούλα στον καναπέ για να απολαύσουν τις αγαπημένες τους παιδικές εκπομπές. Όμως η τηλεόραση έχει εξαφανιστεί! Έπειτα από λίγο ανακαλύπτουν ότι δεν υπάρχουν πια πουθενά τηλεοράσεις! Ποιος, άραγε, τις εξαφάνισε και με τι σκοπό; Τα παιδιά ξεκινούν έρευνα για να λύσουν το μυστήριο, ενώ ταυτόχρονα μικροί και μεγάλοι ανακαλύπτουν τι σημαίνει ελεύθερος χρόνος χωρίς οθόνες. Εντωμεταξύ, κάποιοι εξωγήινοι, οι κάτοικοι του αστεροειδή Κρικ, ξύνουν τις κεραίες τους, προσπαθώντας να καταλάβουν αν οι άνθρωποι είναι τελικά καλοί ή κακοί. Η Πέλα Σουλτάτου γράφει τη «ΜυΧαΤή ή το Μυστήριο της χαμένης τηλεόρασης», μια αστεία, μυστηριώδη και οικολογική ιστορία για παιδιά από 8 ετών, που κυκλοφορεί από τις εκδόσεις Πατάκη σε εικονογράφηση της Κατερίνας Σισκοπούλου, παίζοντας υπέροχα με τα ονόματα των πρωταγωνιστών και δευτεραγωνιστών της και θυμίζοντας στους γονείς ταξίδια που έκαναν πριν κάνουν παιδιά ή που θέλουν να κάνουν όταν τα παιδιά τους μεγαλώσουν. Όσο για τις τηλεοράσεις, οι εξωγήινοι, στους οποίους οφειλόταν η εξαφάνισή τους, ως σαφώς ανώτερα πνευματικά όντα, λίγο είδαν και τις έκλεισαν μια για πάντα! Στα όνειρά μας, έστω... #ΜΥΧΑΤΗ#ΠέλαΣουλτάτου#books#bookstagram#kidsbooks#kidsbookstagram#paidikovivlio#instabooks#instavivlio#ekdoseispataki#patakisbooks#patakis#eimastetavivlia#eimasteoilekseis#eimasteoiskepseis#diavazo
