Happy Father’s Day!

In this last week of June, we have a nice relaxing several days ahead. I don’t have much for your shopping list except for lemons or lemon juice, and maybe some berries or mint leaves. You probably guess we’re going to have some homemade lemonade prepared.

I thought I might recommend a book to read this week, and I came across this great site for nostalgic recollections of old children’s books. http://www.oldchildrensbooks.com/looking-for-a-book

What a magical site!

From that link, you’ll need to scroll way down to get to the discussion posts at the bottom. If you ever enjoyed children’s books, you might like to spend a few minutes reading the posts and seeing if you can answer any of the questions, or if it sparks memories of books you’d like to seek out again.

Have a great week!
