The dust has settled on the election, and after a stay at home/stay in my pj’s/eat candy all day-day, I am ready to put my big girl pants on and move on. Well sort of.  This weekend is all about the kids with school events, field trips etc. so I am already planning my very cozy Sunday night by the fire with a book and a cup of tea.

If your feeling the election blues, nothing ,and no one can pull you out of a funk like David Sedaris can. He is completely hysterical. His books have gotten me out of some ugly cries from my apartment floor in college.

These books above are personally owned by yours truly and I suggest you get yourself a copy of each one! You can click the images to purchase them or you can scroll through the images below and shop there as well.

As always, I would LOVE to know if you have read any of these, which ones you loved, or even didn’t like so much. Also head over to Instagram and join the conversation there as well!

While Luke was at hockey a few weeks ago, Wesleigh (L&W are 10 years and 22 months) and I popped into a local bookstore. I saw the most beautifully illustrated book called “Three Bears in a Boat” by David Soman. Who wouldn’t buy this book based on the cover alone?! The images are beautiful, but it wasn’t until my husband and I read it to the kids that night that it became one of my favorites.

There is a great lesson in this wonderful book. These three sweet bear siblings discover that telling the truth would have been a better option. I love this because most stories about lying (i.e. the boy who cried wolf) show a bad consequence for telling a lie. This book, however, touches a different way of lyingwhen you choose not to tell an adult information. When you omit information from a parent, it is still considered lying. This concept is so hard to teach to little kids. They think they will get in trouble if they tell you things you don’t want to hear. We always want our kids to feel comfortable talking to us! This is a great book for littles and older children as well. I hope you enjoy!
