Reading spooky stories to Daisy #catsoflitsy #raisingreaders

slategreyskies I read somewhere that reading to animals really helps kids a lot, especially kids who struggle with reading. It helps them gain confidence. I think that‘s really cool. Wish I had a pet. I‘d read poems to mine! :) 2mo

Just finished my my first read through of the Anne of Green Gables series. It was delightful!

Graywacke Cool. I‘ve considered doing this. My wife has them all, her childhood copies. 2mo
Butterfinger Didn't you love Walter? I read the series last year to feel closer to my grandmother after she passed. I know I read Rilla several times as a teen, but it was so special. How are you doing my pandemic buddy? Hope you have been doing well. 2mo
Mtroiano Yes! @Butterfinger I‘m doing well! How are you? 2mo

As usual, Jen Wilkin brings so much clarity to biblical text that tends to get glossed over. This book was well written and incredibly insightful.

This was definitely a #blameitonLitsy buy. I loved this book. It allowed me to experience the world of Sommeliers and what it takes to become one. I am too poor to experience the world of high end wine any other way 🙃
