Sometimes reading a book is the best together time.
‘I like me!’ by Nancy Carlson is a family favorite. I love the message – it’s about a cheerful pig (Louanne) who has great self esteem, self acceptance, and self confidence. Louanne is her own best friend. She knows how to take care of herself and has the confidence to pick herself up and try again whenever she makes a mistake.
I remember reading this book to my little sister when she was a toddler 20 some years ago. Ah, time flies so fast! Madelyn has known this book by memory since age 3 and it’s the sweetest thing to listen when she reads aloud.
Tonight I had a surprise gift for my (almost) school girl. This shabby vintage crown made her eyes sparkle and my own heart swoon.
