How I Captured A Dinosaur is a book from my childhood rediscovered through a webcam story session with my dad. Emma (5) and Johnny (3) were thrilled to discover this story of a scientifically minded girl who sets off to a dinosaur – successfully!
Where’s My Mom? has been a favorite with Johnny (3) for several weeks. A little monkey is searching for his mother, and each time he lists a trait he is shown the way to a very different kind of mama! He is reunited at the end, of course.
Noah’s Ark is another webcam session story that I remember from my own childhood. We had this book when I was very young. I remember poring over the pictures, and particularly liking the cats. All three kids enjoyed admiring the illustrations with my dad.
The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Amigurumi is my pick of the week for Mama reading. If you are interested in the how-to of designing amigurumi crochet animals, this is a good place to start. I’m not terribly interested in the patterns that are included in the book, but I am incredibly tempted to purchase her dinosaur patterns.
