Feed Me Books Friday: Early Edition

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Tomorrow, we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving at Grandma’s house, and we’ll be spending time with other branches of our family for the rest of the weekend. My book pick for the week will be the many family photo albums and scrapbooks that come out each year. We will laugh, reminisce, and share some nostalgia. A sense of belonging is vital to emotional development, and what better way to foster it than by creating and reliving wonderful family memories?

If you need an activity to occupy your little ones while you prepare dinner (or when they’ve lost interest at the table) you might want to check out the latest offerings at We Give Books. I received and email this week reminding me to head over and read a book with B so that another is donated to a non-profit literacy campaign. What an easy way to give! And they’ve added some holiday themed reading selections to enjoy! Or, check out the Thanksgiving crafts I shared yesterday!

One more item to share with you – B adored his October countdown calendar, and we were already planning another when I saw an email from Parenting magazine with suggestions for using leftover Halloween candy. We created a countdown to Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years! Each holiday got its own color scheme, selected by B, and he punched and adhered the numbers to the tissue. I assembled the paper cups on a cardboard backing and filled them with candy before gluing the tissue on. He is enjoying a surprise each day and never bothered to notice or ask where all the Halloween candy went!

Wishing all of my readers a blessed and beautiful weekend of gratitude, and if you’re here in the states, Happy Thanksgiving!

Have a book to share this week? Link it up here! If not, hope you'll be back to share next week!

I love that countdown calendar! I think I should make an Advent calendar for the girls. Cute!

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
