Our Book Shelf -- End of May.

Wow, these past two weeks have flown by! I can't believe June is tomorrow, and summer seems to have hit us here, or at least every other day it has. One day it is so hot you can barely breathe, and the next two rainy and cool enough to consider turning the heat back on. But, the lawn has been mowed for the first time this season, we are able to get out and play at least every day or two and if all else fails, we have plenty of books. This is what we have been reading the last couple of weeks.

A star * indicates it seems to be, or is becoming, a favourite of Salean's. Two stars ** mean super favourite, read over and over and over again.

What Mama is reading this week

I still haven't had time to start a book, but got the following from the library.

Wiped: Life with a Pint Sized Dictator by Rebecca Eckler
Green Smoothies for Dummies by Jennifer Thompson

We have a few extra books out this week because I have been bribing her to get her diaper changed by giving a 'new' book out of the closet. These ones have ended up staying out. Next week we will hopefully have a couple more library books as well, I have put a couple potty training ones on hold and hope they are in soon. We have been trying for a few months with no success, she is definitely ready, but is quite stubborn!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend, Happy June!
