Book Sharing Monday & 100-Books-a-Month: November Completion

Wow!!! We did it! I have to say that I got a bit nervous over the last few days with all the preparation I did for thanksgiving. I was extremely tired and we didn't really as much as I had thought. But we spent most of the yesterday finishing up out last stack of books for the month of November.

Before I shared our completed list, we're going to share one of the books with you for Book Sharing Monday.

It's a poem written by Alice Walker illustrated by Stefano Vitale: There Is a Flower at the Tip of My Nose Smelling Me. I enjoyed it and it gave my girls another perspective in viewing the world around them. Here are a few of the lines, in random order, that we enjoyed the most:
There is water at the tip of my tongue, tasting me.
There is a dance that lives in my bones, dancing me.
There is a story at the end of my arms, telling me.
There is a pen nestled in my hand, writing me.

We definitely recommend this book. We're in the process of writing our own poem/book using this as an example! I just love the idea!! If you're interested in joining in Book Sharing Monday, please let Alex know. We'd love to have you!

Now to the 100 Books-a-Month Challenge. If you've liked to find out more about the challenge, click here. Here is our completed list. We are taking a trip to the library this afternoon to get our next set of books for the month of December.
