The Wild Robot | Peter Brown

Finally reading this popular book and reading it with one of my favourite kids. 🥰 The short chapters are exactly what he needs to be motivated to move from more graphic novels / short text to more sustained reading. #proudmama #familyofreaders #booksbindus

Tamra This is a special book here! 💜 2mo
LaurenReads The second book is just as good as the first so far! 2mo
dixi_e @Tamra I‘m looking forward to sharing it with him. Think its also the right time for him to be considering some of the larger ideas it shares. 2mo
dixi_e @LaurenReads Good to know. He already discovered the sequel as he was checking out the number of chapters. He‘d barely stared this one but was very excited at the prospect of there being a continuation. 😆😄 2mo

A Wrinkle in Time | Madeleine L'Engle
post image

My daughter is a biology major at MIZZOU. She‘s taking a course on evolution this semester. I got this text from her today during her class. 😊❤️ A Wrinkle in Time has been one of her favorites since she read it when she was 9 years old. It‘s so funny because I remember having this exact same epiphany when I took my evolution course at university. It made us both love the book even more. #proudmama #science

GloVerdino A wrinkle in time was my favorite book when I was younger too and my husband went to UMKC for grad school, we‘re huge Mizzou football fans! 13mo
Ericalambbrown @GloVerdino UMKC‘s campus is gorgeous! 💕 13mo

2. Donuts, Tim Hortons please
3. Just one, a few hours ago
4. My 15 year old finished her first college class—English 1, with the highest grade in the class, 98.9%!

Excuse the crappy fast food (we were in a hurry! 😒) and notice the Kindle. 😊💕👍 She's choosing to #readandeat whenever possible these days, and has started carrying a purse expressly to be able to bring her Kindle or a book wherever we go. #proudmama #raisingreaders
