Mama’s Reading: The Trumpet of The Swan by E.B. White
I’m a big fan of Stuart Little and Charlotte’s Web (who isn’t?), but don’t recall ever reading this one. I thought it would be the perfect spring time young adult/classic this month. (I’m trying to read more young adult/classics this year- so far I’ve read Heidi, Mary Poppins and The Snow Queen).

I’m also still working on Hands Free Mama and The Dirty Life

  1. I am reading The Truly Alive Child and loving it. Also reading Rhythms of Learning, and enjoying it too. Little man and I have been reading The Story of the Root Children, How Robin Saved Spring, The Story of the Butterfly Children, The Tales of Winnie the Pooh and before bed we read Bedtime Buddha. Oh the Frog and Toad series is a big hit too. So much goodness out there for the kiddos. Happy reading!

    • Rhythms of Learning sounds like an interesting book.
      Thank you for the wonderful children’s book ideas. Sounds like some great titles you and Reece are reading together. We love the Root Children over here too but the others I will have to check out.

  2. HI Summer, Oh those bunny books….Oh Ellie, how fun! I have never read that E.B. White book, I am putting it on my list. I am currently reading The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey. I started it yesterday, and I am having trouble putting it down. It is a lovely read so far. Happy Spring to you, Love, Christina

    • Christina, The Snow Child sounds like a fun, enchanting read! I’m going to have to put it on my “to-read” list. Happy Spring to you as well! xoxo!

  3. I’m reading the neat book Dad sent and a JAJance mystery, but I wanted to say how much I LOVED Charlette’s Web which I just read a few years ago. KIds books are often wonderful to read when one grows up.

    • Yes, I always wanted to wait till I had a child to start reading more classics and young adult but I kept feeling like time was getting away from me and I also wanted to read them in advance in case some books weren’t appropriate or something like that… either way, I’m enjoying the young adults very much and can’t wait to read more! Hope you are healing up Gramma. Good to see you commenting in this space again. 🙂

  4. I will be honest and we’ve been talking and being outside for spring more than reading about it. Trying to do lots of spring art though. The butterflies are back, and birds are singing again so Aerilaya loves it.
    I’m re-reading ‘the Birth House’ right now, it’s one of my favs 🙂
