- Maggy, who blogs at Red Ted Art’s Blog about all things bookish and crafty, writes about an adaptation of the Oscar Wilde story “The Tale of the Happy Prince.” I’m not familiar with this story, but the adaption, which is entitled The Robot and the Bluebird, sounds lovely! Of course, there’s also the requisite art activity to inspire you. Don’t miss this great blog!
- Alice @ Supratentorial has a post that will help us all get ready for next week’s holiday, President’s Day. My girls and I have a little stack of books we’re working on in honor of our first and sixteenth presidents, so I was especially glad to read Alice’s reviews.
- Annette @ Live, Learn, Love writes about several favorites: Even Firefighters Hug Their Moms (how cute is that title?!?), Look! A Book! (which has its own post with a giveaway today!), and Raggedy Andy. All of these are new to me, which is one reason I love Read Aloud Thursday–I get to learn about promising new (to me) titles!
- Janet @ Across the Page writes about “encountering Homer” with her elementary-aged children. I love this post because my girls and I will soon be “encountering Homer” ourselves, and Janet’s book reviews are always spot-on.
- Stephanie @ Simple Things took time away from packing up her house to dash off a quick review of Basil of Baker Street. This is a book that I think my Lulu might enjoy!
- Carrie @ Reading My Library blogs about a random assortment of her little boys’ favorites, including a Christmas pick!
- Beth @ Weavings reviews a chapter book I’ve never read (although I’ve seen it around for a long time!): Brighty of the Grand Canyon. It sounds like a winner!
- Heather @ Books for Breakfast has some great advice about choosing fairy tales, and she includes pictures of her favorite version of Little Red Riding Hood. She makes a strong plea for reading the real thing–check it out!
- Anna @ Mahers Hill Academy highlights a Virginia Lee Burton title that we’ve never read here. It’s Choo Choo, and I actually checked it out a few weeks ago but never read it to my girls. It sounds like one I might need to find again and bring back home since every Virginia Lee Burton title we’ve read has been a hit.
- Sharon @ Life in the Tribe shares a couple of books with a common theme: small, cute characters. Check it out!
That’s a lot of good reading for the weekend ahead. Enjoy!
