On My Bookshelf

Here are a few of the books I'm currently reading!

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH by Robert C. O'Brien

I'm rereading this book for a book discussion group at the library. I am really enjoying it! It is a great fantasy tale for children in grades 3-5 and would make a good read-aloud book for younger children. It won the John Newbery Medal in 1972.

Toddler Play By Dr. Wendy S. Masi

I have a 14 month old daughter, so I am always looking for new activities to try with her. This book is full of activities for children ages 12 months - 24 months and is organized by age level.

Let's Knit: The Beginner's Guide to Knitting By Monette Satterfield

One of of my teen book discussion girls taught me to knit last month, and I haven't had time to practice! This book has illustrations to help with various knitting stitches and simple project ideas. I'm going to try a scarf first!

What books are on your bookshelf (or bedside table) right now? I would especially love to hear about books or web sites that have lots of good activities for young children!


Thanks for the mention of my book - I really appreciate it! Good luck with your new skill and projects. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you out.

I'm so excited that the author of one of these books stopped in to leave me a note. Thanks so much! I really enjoyed my brief knitting lesson and am looking forward to giving knitting a try! I appreciate your offer of help!
