Making Art Together

Tubby Time: Bath Book Round-Up

Bath time. You either love it of your hate it. Or, if you were like me when I was a kid, you would do anything to keep from having to take a bath, but then once in that nice warm water, would absolutely refuse to get out. Luckily, there are some great books about bath time to make this every day task a little more fun. READ MORE

Summer Reading

School may be out, but summer reading is IN! I have an ever-growing to-read list that I keep quite haphazardly in many different places - online, on my computer, on post-it notes, and in margins of notebooks - anywhere I can write down the title of a book that I want to remember to read. Summer is the perfect time to chip away at that list, whether it's a day at the beach, a rainy day stuck inside, a long car trip or a late night in bed. READ MORE

Picture Book Puzzler: Beachy Keen

It's summertime! I'm on vacation this week (but don't worry, I have a full week of posts scheduled) and I'm in the mood to go swimming. I think a number of picture book characters have the exact same idea. Can you name the picture book each of these summer scenes come from? Put your guesses in the comments below and I'll be back NEXT week (after some beach time myself!) with the answers.

Happy Birthday Eric Carle!
