IT"S APRIL ! : WHAT AM I READING? 3.4.16


It's April!

~

and while I'm all anticipation for those May flowers,
we have been blanketed with snow, never mind showers!
so... while I'm downing hot chocolate and comfort food,
what keeps me happiest in forced confinement?

What Am I Reading? 
~
 Thanks for asking...
I've discovered my best way to do Monday reading posts
is to keep this month long running tally.
Here goes for APRIL ~

Read so far?  
Today I had the pleasure of reading Kathryn Ross's children's story,
BUGABOO-BEE's BOP
It releases tomorrow April 4th with a FB Launch Party
7-9 pm EST and anyone - with children or grands? -
is most welcome to attend!
~

An intelligent story that comes with an accompanying
audio dramatisation
of characters and talented musicians which add to the fun.
Beautiful artwork illustrates each page.  
The lilting verse makes it memorable to young readers.
Extras include bee facts, links, study guides, and more,
all suitable for enhanced learning and homeschooling. 
Here's a wee taster...

Join the Party HERE complete with prizes and games

Thanks for such a nice mention. Glad that it's helpful. I've often found such lists useful in those times when Becca of I'm Lost in Books has posted news of readalongs and such. I seem to be a little more aware and in the middle of things these days online (after a long hiatus), so it is nice to have a spring bouquet of reading events to offer. Now I just need some magical time to enable me to read all I can dream of reading! When I was a little girl, my dad would say "your eyes are bigger than your stomach"--some things never change, just transform ... :)

I like the sound of The Colorful Death.

Kathryn T said...

Sounds like some great reading planned and I love the idea of hot chocolate. That children's book looks totally delightful.

It's been awhile since I've picked up an Agatha Christie novel. Hopefully I get to read another one of her novels soon.

Looks like you have an interesting April ahead. Thanks for the taste of the bee book. My grands are adults, but I do have a great grandson that is close enough that I get to read to him on occasion. He is soon to be joined by a baby sister, so I'll have lots of reading of "books for littles" in my future. Thanks for the intro.

A Worthy Heart looks interesting to me. I just may have to get my hands on that one. Thanks.
