Bedtime Book Basket

We have some faves in the bedtime book basket that are now dog-eared from love, so we thought we should tell you about them:

Whoever You Are by Mem Fox is a beautiful story that celebrates diversity by exploring our similarities. Satch likes to recite the last line, "Whoever you are, Where ever you are, All over the world".

Inside All is a journey from the universe into the heart of a child, reminding us that we are a part of the "ALL" and the "ALL is inside us.

Walk When the Moon is Full is not a picture book. These are journal entries about the author's monthly moonlight walks that she took with her children. Such a wonderful way to share nature with your child, and particularly delightful when read as a bedtime story. We read one entry each month.

Marc Just Couldn't Sleep makes Satch giggle. He's coined a phrase from the book for his own, "You took the wrong yourself a map". However, because we co-sleep, Satch always insists, "His mom should sleep with him so he won't be afraid".

Grandfather Twilight, also a favorite of one of my beloved beings. Satch loves how the pearl turns into the moon.

The Tomten is a bedtime book that we read in the winter season. It's very soothing. Afterwards, we like to pretend we have a Tomten watching over our family.

We're attempting to make chocolate beet root cupcakes for Valentine's Day and are awaiting the arrival of Satchel's Nomah. Have a good weekend. See you Monday Tuesday.

Great book ideas. I was just wondering, how old is your son? I love the ideas you have on your blog and I just was curious at what age your doing these activities so I could know for my kids.

Thanks for the title reviews Wendy. Annabelle and I will definitely have to check these out. Also, I hope you'll share a little bit about the chocolate beet root cupcakes. They sound tasty and interesting.
