Fabulous Book for Kids


One of my favorite moms and friends Gina (I feel an interview coming on), mentioned this book at our Ash Wednesday service at church last night. It's called The Three Questions, by Jon J. Muth. Based on the writings of Tolstoy, this book has a philosophy I just love.

What is the best time to do things? Who is the most important ones? What is the right thing to do? These are all answered in the story of a boy named Nicolai who gets some pretty wise advice from a turtle.

Beautifully illustrated, this book will open your little ones eyes to what's really important in life.

That looks like a great book. I could probably learn from the book also!

I just signed up with bloglines last week so it is still very new to me, but you set up an account & then you can tell it what blogs you want to watch. Anytime there is a new post it will show that blogs title in bold when you go check bloglines. It eliminates having to go check everyones blog to see if there is a new post.
